NinerNiner – Paid Blogging Site

| April 27, 2009 | 18 Comments

NinerNiner is another paid to blog website. The payout is rather minimal. They pay anywhere from .10 to .50 per 150 word post. The sign up is as easy as selecting a username, filling in a valid email address and selecting a password.

Writing Topics on NinerNiner

Once you create an account, you can select which ever topic you’re most passionate about and begin blogging. Blogs range in topics from the High Heels Blog to My Secret Home Biz. As of this writing NinerNiner has 37 blog topics and is taking suggestions for more topics.

Unlike Today.com, NinerNiner does not limit bloggers to one post per day. If you find something that you’re particularly passionate about and have a lot to say, you can write several posts a day for the going rate. In order to make any real money, you’re going to have to write a lot of posts.

Just for grins, I signed up for an account on NinerNiner. When I logged in, I was surprised to see that I had a $5 balance in my account. I don’t know if this was a sign on bonus or a seasonal special.

I’m not a huge fan of paid for blogging sites. Generally, I  prefer residual income sites like Suite 101 and eHow. However, sites like Demand Studios and NinerNiner have their place and can fulfill some writer’s needs. It doesn’t take long to come up with a 150 word post, so if you’re  willing to give it a try, it might work out well for you.

NinerNiner Payment Options

NinerNiner accepts international writers and pays via PayPal. Payment is made the month after your account reaches the $25 payout level.

After doing a little searching around the Internet I see that other folks have earned money through NinerNiner so they do seem to be a legitimate site. If you looking to make a couple of bucks blogging, give it a shot. Although the pay rate isn’t much, it can’t be much worse than the rate currently being offered over at Today.com.

    Felicia your comment the other day really gave me a mental whoppin . That night I submitted my test sample for Textbroker, the responded this afternoon and I am now working on my first assignment on that site. And, I’m determined to do it. I know I just have to keep pushing myself in the right direction and eventually I’ll hop on board this train.

    Thanks again for always being candid and responsive. You have the spirit of giving and it’s obvious you will continue achieve great successes. I love your blog.

  2. Tashana says:

    I just signed up for this site and it seems that they still are not paying their bloggers. As early as yesterday a blogger posted a complaint stating that they had not been paid. And, there appears to be no response from any representative of Niner Niner. Seems like a dud. I was really interested in blogging though, but not with that type of negative credibility.

    • Felicia says:

      Tashana, you’re getting one step closer to writing for money. Keep up the good work.

      Sorry NinerNiner was a dud, but I’m sure there are other places where you can showcase your talent. Keep searching.

    I wrote for Niner Niner for a couple of weeks and when I reached the payout they did not pay on time. They sent me an email implying that I would not be able to post that much content in such a short time.

    The next month they increased the word amount for each post from 150 word to 200 words. Although they kept the pay at $0.50 for each blog post.

    I will not be contributing to Niner Niner until they raise the pay. Just not worth it.

  4. Shamrockcon says:

    I signed up with them and the pay isn’t great, but I sort of enjoy writing on the “single life” blog. I guess dispensing advice makes me feel important. I did the math on the payment scale and figured out that you get 1/3 of 1 cent per word (here’s the link: http://experimentswritingonline.wordpress.com/2009/06/01/niner-niner-get-paid-to-blog/ )

    I think I’ll stick with it for now because it’s fun but I probably won’t do it for long unless the pay scale gets better.

  5. Kate says:

    I also am looking into Blogsvertise.com, which apparently pays between $4 and $25 a posting. But they are slow to get back to you for confirmation when you sign up.

  6. Kate says:

    Thanks Felicia! I will do that. But it forced me to write some good content so I can probably use it elsewhere. From what I gather Smorty used to pay per posting, but now it is a residual income? I don’t have much luck with that, do they still ever pay upfront?

  7. Kate says:

    Hi Felicia,

    I actually did sign up with them, just to see what they’re all about. But there really isn’t a whole lot of info on them on the internet. I’ve been looking at lists of different publishing platforms and they were on one. It just doesn’t make perfect sense to me because I just can’t really imagine that you can make more money there than on an actual WordPress.

    • Felicia says:

      I just took a quick look at them. They seem to be a start up and their Google ranking isn’t extremely high. Their Alexa rank is currently at 262,896. Compare that to sites like eHow, payperpost.com or even smorty.com, PaidtoBlog.com is not very impressive. You’re right, I can’t see making much money with them. I would pass on these guys and look for something with higher rankings (just my opinion).

  8. Kate says:

    Hi Felicia,

    I actually just found this other site, PaidToBlog.com, kind of a WordPress-esque or based system. In the faq they say that the average PTB writer of three posts a week would earn around $50 a month. Are you familiar with them?

    • Felicia says:

      Hi Kate,

      No, can’t say that I’m familiar with PaidToBlog.com. I’ll take a look to see what they’re about. If you do decide to sign up with them, please share your experience.

  9. Kate says:

    Hi Felicia,

    I was wondering, could you tell me how Niner Niner works? I checked it out but can’t tell where the money comes from for paying bloggers. Thanks!

    Felicia,
    How has NinerNiner been treating you thus far?
    I signed up yesterday and have a $7.50 balance. You do receive a $5.00 signup bonus: I got it too!
    It is going to take a while to get to the $25.00 payout but I decided to write there anyway. It is a paid opportunity for blogging that doesn’t require you to trash your own blog and it is a great idea to have paid bloggers collaborate.
    Thus far, there are two kinds of writers at NinerNiner. Writers who really, really suck (to put it mildly) and write posts full of errors. The second writer is the serious writer who works hard at what they do – but not too hard. I have been that second writer.
    I figure that for a little bit of work I can make some quick money and add up more writing experience. After all, I am currently a freelance writer without a computer.
    I see Niner Niner as being something to do on a “break” because I tend to work, even during my breaks.
    Let us know how it goes for you, Felicia.

      Hey Jessie,

      I never really got past the sign up. My account probably still stands at $5.00. I’ve been busy elsewhere and probably won’t get much of a chance to write on NinerNiner.

      I’m glad that its working out for you. It should like a good fit for someone without a computer. 🙂

    It seems like this might be a good place to link to your other work, like Xomba and Bukisa. I just wrote about that at http://www.tinyurl.com/paid2link

    Hi Felicia,
    This sounds interesting…a place for people to get their feet wet, for sure!

    I’m through with Today.com, too…what a rip off that has been. But you never know till you try!

    Have a great day,
    Sher :0)
