I have been using 3 specific websites to get paid to blog with over the last couple of years and have made quite a bit of penny from it. I’ve been broke lately and haven’t gotten as many paid blog offers as I used to so I thought I would go searching for some more websites to sign up with to make more money. Times are tough and you do what you have to do right?
So I found this website on the Google search engine – 26 Sites That Pay You to Blog
I am looking at the list and thinking, wow, I had no idea about any of these sites. So I start with number 1 and sign up, number 2 and number 3. It gets boring having to fill out so many forms so I figure 3 is enough for today. I’ll see what happens with these 3 for now and if I don’t get as many offers as I had hoped for then I will sign up for more later.
One of the sites that I signed up for called Reviewme sends me a rejection email. I’m ok with a rejection email as long as it’s a legitimate reason for rejecting me. These are their reasons for rejection:
- The website is a suspected fake.
- The website does not have enough link popularity.
- The website does not have enough traffic.
Fake? Seriously? I can see the link popularity or the traffic issue but fake? Do they seriously think that I would create a fake website to sign up for theirs? Really?
I bought this domain name sometime in 2002, the name Xanapus is based on a character that I played in the MMORPG game “EverQuest”. It was a very odd name which is what attracted me to it. I liked it and I’ve been using it all over the internet ever since to sign up for websites. I didn’t start blogging with it until around 2007. I have spent many hours every day over the last 9 years on this website and 4 years on this blog and to have them tell me it’s a suspected fake is just insulting.
I emailed them telling them this:
“You think my website is a fake? I have had this website since I believe 2002. It is my own personal website. I started blogging in 2007. I have spent many hours of my life every day over the last 5 years on my blog and to have it called a fake is an insult to me personally. Thank you, I now have a new blog post to write about.”
I was so mad that I forgot that it had only been 4 years since I’ve been blogging but whatever. This is their response to me:
“When reading the below e-mail, it states these are the most popular reasons for rejection, not the reason/s it was rejected. I would suspect the traffic was lacking and that is why it was rejected.”
Whatever reviewme.com, screw you! There are 25 more websites in that list that I can sign up with to make money to feed my family with. Yes, 2 dudes and a dog is a family to me.
