List update

Added descriptions and moved Feed The Village and Print N Post up to Sites which let you earn passive income

Personally, I don't like Feed the Village. They're not the only site donating to charity, and if you take the 10% they donate and add that to the 10% they pay out to writers, that's only 20% they're paying out. In contrast sites like Squidoo and Triond pay out 50% of the revenue they earn to writers. And Squidoo even pays out an additional 5% of their total revenue to charity and doesn't attempt to make a marketing gimmick out of it. You could decide to give half of what you earn on Squidoo or Triond to charity and both you and the charity of your choice would still come out ahead earnings-wise compared to writing for Feed the Village.

Print N Post, on the other hand, might be worth taking a look at.

True, it's a site where you earn via having Google Adsense displayed on your articles (which means a high payout threshold of $100USD for those of you who care about payout thresholds), the community isn't very large so you won't be getting read a lot by traffic within the site itself, and the Page Rank for Print N Post isn't very impressive so natural traffic from search engines will be low.

But.

They do allow linking in your articles, and those are quality links e.g not "nofollow" links. Which makes Print n Post useful for publishing excerpts to your blog entries/articles published elsewhere.

FAQ

Why is the date for this post set way in the future?

When I started this post back in 2008, I wanted this post to be at the top of my blog. Since the more recent blog posts appear higher at the top, I hit on the idea of setting this blog post way in the future. (In hindsight, this was a rather inelegant solution.)

What is Iakul's List?

I stumbled into online freelance writing back in 2008. Started complying a list of sites where I could get paid to write, and hence Iakul's List was created.

Is Iakul's List still being updated?

I used to investigate a site quite thoroughly before I was willing to put it on my list. It took a lot of time and effort, which at this point simply isn't worth my while to expend. However, I'm still unwilling to compromise on the checks I put a site through. I do still plan to update and add new sites to Iakul's List, but expect my updates to be more sporadic. Quite a number of the site descriptions are also outdated, and rewriting…

List update

Added two sites to the list, Bukisa under the "Passive Income" section, and Words of Worth under the "Sites which Pay Upfront Section"

Personally, I don't like Bukisa, and I have indicated so in the site description on the list itself. They have been around since late 2008, which does mean that they are relatively new as a content site. I have to say that they are actually better than when they started out, when they didn't care what you published there as long as it was 250 words. They, however, still have a long way to go.

Words of Worth is a UK site set up in 2007. You enter into a contract with them, where you promise to deliver 10 to 80 articles every month, depending on the contract, and they promise to pay you £250 monthly.

Contracts typically last for 12 months, and they do require you to give a month's advance notice should you decide that you want to quit. You are not limited to one contract and can choose to apply for a second contract with th…

Wikinut taken down

Took Wikinut down from the list

Increasing more and more people were coming forward with reports that Wikinut was a scam. It's been a few years since I last looked at Wikinut, and I suspect that I would have taken it down if I had taken another look earlier.
