Got paid $40 by Blogitive in March

James Ryan Jonas

Definitely not bad. You just rephrase an advertiser’s press release, post it in your blog using no less than 100 words and you get paid $5. In my case, I was paid $40 in March. And I wasn’t even that active yet, logging in to the Blogitive site only once every three days.

Blogitive is another one of those get paid to blog programs. In contrast with other programs, however, you can easily earn five dollars just by “paraphrasing” a short article (they call it a “web release”) from advertisers. There are very few slots available for each article, so if you refresh the “Open Offers” list without claiming an article, you might miss it right there and then.

Blogitive has very few guidelines you need to follow in order to be credited earnings. They are particular about grammar and spelling so if you are not able to write using proper basic English, your blog would most probably be not accepted into the program.

They also require that you make at least two non-Blogitive posts in between two Blogitive advertisements. That, I think, is to prevent having blogs that contain ads alone. Of course, if you simply copy and paste posts from other websites (including the original web release), you’re also out.

More info about the program and how you can join can be found in the Get Paid $5 to Blog article.
