Anyone still using Daily Two Cent?
« on: November 25, 2015, 12:43:32 AM »
This time last year I was investing a lot of time in DTC and, to a lesser extent, Writedge. In fact, the vast majority of my online income journey back then was focused on the site.

Things have changed a bit in terms of my focus and with the site. I removed some of my articles a few months back (I'd managed to get to 200 articles on there) when they shifted to their third pricing model. For me, the whole thing had stopped monetizing.

I sure the admin there are genuine and honorable but it wasn't working for me well any more.

Is anyone else still on DTC? If you are, are you able to still make money on it (both more or less money)?

You wrote 200 articles; all I can say is well done because their interface was not the most user friendly, even though I am used to wordpress.

I just don't think these sites are viable any longer, because you still do most of the work with no control and have restrictions too. They do seem genuine, but I disliked the numerous emails they sent people trying to push them to write more, then closing accounts if you didn't write. I don't need that kind of interaction, so I stopped.

I have already came across Daily Two Cents before, but I haven't tried writing for them yet. I know a lot of freelance writers who made decent money with them in the past, but yes, I have also been hearing/reading negative reviews about them lately so I guess it's not worth it anymore.

I only joined DTC in May and never published much there because I found both my income and interaction non-existent. For some reason when I tried to comment on posts nothing ever showed up so I quickly lost interest. At one stage I was interested in joining another of their sites but had technical problems with that one and was unable to do so. Now with their changed revenue program, I'll probably delete my content. I may be able to reuse some of it at BlogJob.

I was with them for a while too but quickly found out that it wasn't making me any money and I stopped. Things kept changing on there and the interface wasn't friendly either. I also have a Wordpress blog so I know how to get around, but something about DTC that I can't figure out. I manage to only make a few dollars on that site before quitting.

I've never used or heard of them but am interested to hear about them.  200 articles is a lot anywhere.  How long did it take you to write that many? 
Are you able to write about any topic or are there certain ones they prefer?  I enjoy writing however I find a lot of these sites you write articles and spend all this time but then you have to wait for someone to approve it.  That isn't worth it to me.

I never heard of Daily Two Cents to be honest. It sounds like it was a site that was good in the day, and then went downhill as so many of these internet sites do after a time. It doesn't sound like it would be worth joining anymore. I will look at Writedge, and maybe sign up for that, as it seems like it might be a slightly better site.

Writedge seems like a nice site. And the good thing is, that AdSense actually pays you and that you are not dependent on the site owners to get paid. They also let you write about almost anything.

It took about 6 months to write them if I'm not mistaken. They varied in length and subject matter, which made it a lot easier for me to churn them out. And some of it really was simply "churning". But I didn't make a great deal out of it. It was though my first effort at learning money online, and indirectly it did lead me to lots of other opportunities such as Postloop, so it wasn't all wasted.

I like the site owners, but they kept changing the revenue model. I decided to focus my efforts on other things. I decided to focus on my own sites.

This was the same reasons: "no income and no interaction" for me. I wonder if it is still exist online and how many people actually got paid.

I know this is an old thread, but my curiosity gets me here :)

I like the DTC admin, but when they had to revise their rates, it wasn't viable for me to write there anymore. So even though I've left my account open, I don't write there anymore. The funny thing is, for the longest time, I hated the interface, all that green and those weird characters littered all over the site LOL Then they gave the site a facelift and it looked better, but the earning power went with the tired old look site. Just when I thought I'd really give it a go. I don't have that many articles there. I don't think they've closed my account because I still get the occasional email.

There were a few times that I checked into these places... each time with a hope that I'd see something to make me want to use any of my work time for writing for them.  That never happened, though.  I always ended up looking for reviews at the same time and I just couldn't justify the rate of pay with the time I'd be using to get some material written for them.

I gather from this thread that the pay scale went even lower from when I had checked into it.  Sure wish some places would come back like I worked for in the past!  Places paying dollars instead of pennies.   :(

Apparently I missed out on that site, as everyone is saying it used to be great, but that the new rates make it no longer worth it. Well, better luck next time for me I guess.

I think I'm too late here, am I the only one who haven't even heard of DTC? I've known of other sites like it but not exactly DTC. From what I've searched, it's a site that pays you to write your opinions and thoughts. How could I have missed that? But from what you guys posted, it doesn't seem like a lucrative way to earn anymore.
