It's Payday at Squidoo

Well, it's payday again at Squidoo. As you can tell by my blog posts, Squidoo is the only place I'm spending my freelance writing time these days. I haven't had a lot to say about other writing sites, because I haven't been writing anywhere else.

Squidoo's payments have been phenomenally high for the last 3 payouts. Today, October 13th, I received my highest payment ever from Squidoo. It was $717.74. You can see my full earnings history at Squidoo by scrolling halfway down the page Today's earnings are listed there as August, because that is the month they were actually earned. Squidoo payout runs 2 months behind.

Like all good things, I fear this will come to an end. Over the past 6 months, I've noticed it becoming increasingly difficult to keep a lens ranked at tier 1, the highest paying tier. I've also noticed an explosion of new members writing at the site, making it more difficult to find untouched topics to write about.

I am going to keep being loyal to Squidoo and write as much as I can there, while I have the opportunity. Squidoo may eventually have all the content it needs, and writers will be looking for a new gig, but for now I am going to enjoy the ride.

Thanks for sharing your "wealth" with us (at least the info about your wealth!), Heather. I have a long way to go to make that much but I'm plugging along! I hope you're wrong that all goods may come to an end.

I hope I'm wrong too Peg.
