Did you know that you can actually earn money posting in forums?

This post is written by Sarah, a friend of mine who really know’s what she’s talking about.  I hope you enjoy her expertise, because she’s teaching me a few things that I didn’t know before I met her!  I think you’ll like them too, and I’ve invited her to share occasionally on my site with my readers.  
Do you ever find yourself chatting with other people in online forums or bulletin boards about things that interest you? These days, it’s a very common pastime for many people. It can be a way to get advice, share interests, make friends, and more. I have enjoyed spending time socializing or asking for advice on forums talking about parenthood, coupons, computer problems, pets, finances, and much more. There is probably a forum on the Internet about any subject you could think of.
Besides having a good time, did you know that you can actually earn money posting in forums? Forum owners who have just launched a new forum usually need some people to visit their forum, add new threads, and reply to other people’s posts so that it is more attractive to new members. The easiest way to accomplish this is to simply pay people to come and interact with others in the forum in a natural manner. Secrecy is of utmost importance. You must never let any of the other forum members know that you are actually being paid to post!
The pay is not something that is going to rival that of a full time job, by any means. However, you can earn some Christmas or rainy-day money in your spare time. Years ago, when I had more spare time than I do now, I could make between $60 and $70 in a month just working a little each day. I’m sure I spent less than an hour each day. Pay can range from $0.08 to $0.25 per post, depending on a variety of factors including post quality and the company with which you are working.
Some popular forum posting websites include Kickstart Your Forums, Paid Forum Posting, Postloop, Post On My Forum, and We Love Forums. These five companies are the only forum posting companies that I recommend at this time. There are some others out there that pay $0.01 or $0.02 per  post, which is not worth the time spent, so I’m not going to even mention them. 
If you are interested in learning more about the companies mentioned above, please visit Home Jobs for Mom’s page.  From that page, you will be able to find more information about those companies and the links to their websites if you wish to sign up. Not all paid posting companies are looking for new writers all the time, but you can certainly apply and you’re sure to find some work that you can do.
