Well, after a long time waiting, I finally hit payout at FireHow. Considering I've had articles there for over two years, it's about time I reached that $10 minimum payout. Yes - you heard me right.
Been Waiting a Long Time
I started writing for FireHow in August 2009 when I was trying different writing sites to see where I could earn the most money. Because I was beginning to do so well at eHow, I figured that since FireHow was similar, it might eventually get a good following and the income might grow. For me, that ended up not being true and I moved on. I have about 20 articles there - not many I agree, but enough that they would have probably earned about $10 a month on eHow. I just left them there and have been checking the site off and on for two years. Today I see that I finally broke the $10 mark and hopefully I will be paid at the end of the month.
Is FireHow Worth Writing For?
I really can't say for sure since I only have a few articles there. I know there are people there with hundreds of articles and they may be earning a good monthly income for all I know. I do know that the income rate isn't as big as compared to eHow at its peek, but that doesn't mean that people aren't earning money. I would think that if some of the writers there have been there for years, and continue to add new content, then they are certainly earning enough to make them happy. But I assume it takes adding a lot of content to the site to earn a monthly income.
Anyway - had to share this big news with all of you. If you are a FireHow writer, I would love to hear why you write for the site and if it is worth it financially for you.
