Forums and Communities That Pay You To Contribute

In the past few months I have come across some really cool ways to bring in a little money by doing what I've been doing for years! What I'm talking about here are forums that will pay you to post, and social-networking communities that pay you to contribute to the community. I have been somewhat of a junkie to these kinds of sites for a long time. So I figured I would start participating in the ones that pay me!


The first one I found out about was MyLot. MyLot is a unique and fun online community filled with members from all over the world discussing topics of everyday life. myLot is a place where members can discuss whatever is on their mind. Whether you want to discuss sports, ask a question on how to find a job, get advice on dating, or just want to talk about what is bothering you, myLot is the place for you! I've been a member of MyLot since February and I have done pretty well there. The minimum payout is $10 and once you've reached it, they will pay you via PayPal or e-Gold each month. If, for some reason, you don't reach payout each month, your current earnings carry over to the next month.

Hash Bush
Another fun community that is a lot like MySpace, (and I'm sure you're all familiar with MySpace), is Hash Bush. For all the activities you do in the community you will get activity points. The activity points will then be converted to dollars and then you are paid. And soon they will be adding the great feature of letting you put up your Google Adsense ads on your profile! I can't wait for that! Here are the ways you earn at Hash Bush:
  • Inviting your friends
  • Submitting pics to your personal gallery
  • Making a new quiz, with 10 questions you can have other members answer
  • Writing about anything in your personal blog
  • Creating a new poll about anything you want
  • Forum Posting
  • Posting a Bulletin
  • For Playing Games
  • Scrapping your friends
Get paid anytime with minimum account balance of your choice and carry forward of unpaid amounts. There is no minimum amount to be earned before getting paid or no need for you to wait for the month end to get paid.Withdraw your money whenever you need, whether it is $1 or $100, you can withdraw at your wish once Hash Bush Admin/staff has approved your earnings. You can send a message to the admin when you want to withdraw your earnings. All payments will be in US dollars and made via PayPal.

Dollar$pace doesn't pay you to contribute, (yet) but they do provide you a place to put up your Google Adsense ads. I have gotten several clicks per day on my ads that are there. You can also hook up with other folks who are into the online money-making gigs. It's a terrific place to find resources and meet new people. So I highly recommend this place.


I just found this one last week, so I haven't participated much, but it seems to be the best paying forum I've seen. Here are the rates:
  • Earn $0.05 per each thread you make!
  • Earn $1.00 per each user you refer!
  • Earn $5.00 just for signing up!
  • Also as a bonus earn up to $0.01 per reply!
So, yeah...I'll be hanging out there for sure!

I've been a member here for about a month. It's a really fun forum to participate in, so I highly recommend it. This is from the FAQs:
  • You get paid 3 cents ($ 0.03 ) for every post that you make in a paying category.
  • The minimum pay out is $ 15. If you do not have $15 your money will be rolled over.
  • To receive the payout, you must have a PayPal account.
  • Once you have $ 15, to receive the payout you must PM the Admin on the 29th, 30th or the 31st with your PayPal address.
  • As soon as possible the Admin will send your payment to your PayPal address.
  • All Payments are in USD ($)
Another place to meet some new people and discuss whatever's on your mind. The people are very nice, and I've been a member for about a month now. I highly recommend this one, because I've met some very cool folks here. Here's the payment scale from the FAQs section:
  • $0.02 per new thread (topic)
  • $0.015 per new post
  • $0.002 per referral post
So you can continue to make money on your referrals here instead of just a flat rate for each one. I like that!

Now here's a place I really like. I've been a member for a couple of months and have participated in some really interesting discussions. There are many ways to boost your earnings at DormCheck, so it doesn't take long to reach the minimum payout. The admin keeps improving the place, too, so it just keeps getting better and better. So check it out!


Well that is all I have for today. If I come across any new ones, I will post them here. Ya'll have a nice rest of the weekend and happy earning!
