Anyone making any money by writing on Helium?

Perhaps writing for money doesn't exactly go here (although it is a craft by most definitions) I was just wondering if anyone on ish has had much financial sucess writing on Helium 'Where Knowledge Rules' (ooer) either as a contributor or a consumer. The two things are linked after all!

Helium - you mean the stuff I put in balloons???
Let us be lovely
And let us be kind
Let us be silly and free
It won't make us famous
It won't make us rich
But damn it how happy we'll be!

Yes, it is true writing on helium makes you write with a very high voice!Not really it is a site where you submit articles on practically any subject and then they are rated and you get paid if people read them. I have a few articles up there and have made a tiny bit of money but wondered if anyone else on ish had any experience of using it?

Its is http://www.helium.com
If anyone does decide to give it a go could I be cheeky and ask them to let me invite them? I then get paid a tiny bit too, not a share as in the writer does not get any less for what they have done, they just pay out a bit more to the person who has invited someone new. I am organicsi on there too. Even if you don't want me to get the money for inviting you, get someone to join and invite you or visa versa, its is a way of making a bit more dosh.

Apparently some people earn $400 per month but they have written 100s of articles. I have written about 30 so have only made $50 this year, my own fault... But with the weather closing in I thought I would give it another try. There is so much expertise on ish it might be a way for folk who like sharing knowledge and ideas to get some financial reward.

Hi Allendra, you need to send me your e-mail adress before I can invite you. Send me a private mail if you don't want to put it up on this thread.

I'm glad I read this thread cos several times I saw the title and thought it was something to do with writing on balloons too. :lol: Then I thought when I started reading the first post, oh no, of course helium is a type of writing paper, but realise now I was thinking of Vellum.

Oh dear! :oops: :iconbiggrin:

Thanks very much to all the people who have asked me to invite them on Helium. I think I have sent all the requests! If you asked but have not received, let me know. Please check your spam in case it went there first though as my real surname is Christmas! and at this time of year.... well you can imagine what fun it is! I don't get taken seriously at the best of times, but it can get very silly during the festive season. :santa: :santa: :santa:
