Why Write on Wizzley?

by blackspanielgallery

Wizzley is just one of the many writing sites to choose from, but in my opinion it is the best for me. It is a great place to publish and the other people here are helpful.

There are several sites where one can publish articles, and those sites each has a different formula for monetizing the work. Just before I joined Wizzley I knew nothing of its existence. I had been writing for years, both for similar sites and for publishing companies. Writing is not a problem. It is choosing a place to write, and Wizzley seems to be a best fit for me. The rules are clearly stated, and stable, unlike some other sites, and the people are friendly.

My Writing History on Squidoo

I started writing articles for Squidoo, and quickly found success, although that quickly changed.  I noticed several flaws, but thought I could get passed them. 

One flaw was the forum.  It was controlled by a handful of people who could make decisions on others’ posts.  There were threads to post your best, newest, and so on, so I started a thread to post a sample of your niche.  Most people develop one or several niches.  But two moderators openly discussed this on the forum and deleted the thread, even though they themselves asked for samples of one’s own work with different qualifiers.  The impression I got was there was a small group who were trying to promote themselves and not let others in. 


Well, that was not serious, for if they wanted to keep the forum their private domain so what?  I was doing fine.  Then I was told to apply for Giant Squid by someone who should have known what is required.  Alas, another hidden rule came up, one had to change the heading “Comments” from all comment modules.  It seemed to me the logical thing was to ask for comments using the term.  This time I changed things and got approved.


Then they got weird, and lost income, and really changed a lot.  That is when I stopped writing.

I Wrote on Zujava

Zujava was friendly, and the rules were well stated.  But, they lost their Amazon affiliate program, and did not add Viglinks.  Once that happened it was a matter of mere months before they went down.  

Hubpages Or Wizzley

With two sites to choose from I asked in the forum at Zujave, and Wizzley was given as the better choice.  So, I came here.  It has been less than a year, but I like what this site is like.  People are friendly and interact.  And it is easy to have a Wizzle featured in some way.  I now have over one hundred forty Wizzles.  Yes, they are being repaired because Amazon dropped all affiliate accounts in Louisiana over tax issues, so I am replacing with Viglinks.  But this is caused by Amazon, not by Wizzley.  Still, it has slowed new article production.


I had little recourse when Squidoo went down, over three hundred articles were transferred to Hubpages.  I went through them and deleted some that were the wrong length, or had become obsolete.  Then I brought the rest to Hubpages standards.  The rule is one link per fifty words, just as it is here, or is it?  Initially they featured my articles.  Then, when I updated articles, even with more words and no added links, they often unfeatured the article, even though I had many more than fifty words per link.  My concern is how could something be fine one day but if I add new information and no new products it no longer is?  Another problem is traffic, there is too little of it for my articles there.  And once an article has too little traffic, it becomes unfeatured. 

Others like it there, so it is a matter of taste, but I prefer to not add any content there.


All of my articles get traffic, and more than what was happening on Hubpages.  And when I add Wizzley articles to Stumbleupon I get traffic reports saying they are being found.  My articles are being promoted by Stumbleupon, but no such reports ever came from Hubpages.  In fact, this is something unique to Wizzley.  And if no one reads an article, what is the point of writing it?  Wizzley has the traffic, and I am now quite happy.

I like Wizzley's way of doing things. On Wizzley, if I want to change an article I can, but I can also leave it as it is. The other sites that you mention seem to be into change for change's sake, and that is never good.

Yes, it is much better here. I have a Hubpages account, but I plan to deplete my work from that location soon. I will move some to my website, and some here. It is a slow process. But, I cannot keep up with things changing. Here, I have placed material and it is still active.

One of the things I appreciate about Wizzley is the site owners not constantly shifting and changing the rules. Things feel stable here, and even when I basically ignored my content for over a year (real life kept me away from content writing), my pages were here, I was still making some earnings, and I came back to find things basically as they were. Compared to Hubpages I REALLY appreciate that. Granted, I do best with my own personal websites these days, but it is nice to have a place like Wizzley where I can share writing that doesn't necessarily fit my other niche sites. It's a solid part of my online portfolio.

I do not know which is better, but one must earn $100 to be paid by Adsense. I had it on other places, and am finally getting too close to change for now. I earn just a small amount every month, but in six months I may actually finally get something. Then would be the time to consider making a change.

I use Chitika for my adverts, as they are easy to use, but they cannot be used with Adsense

No. You can use Adsense, but the have another ad program as well. And, you use Amazon, Zazzle, and Viglinks for earning, with Ebay via Viglinks. If you do not have Adsense ou can still join.

I believe there is an alternative to AdSense. But, even if you have no account you can earn from the other sources while waiting for yo approval.

Interesting to read your history.

I checked ill declare and it is a genuine site with money making opportunities, but I have concerns. My main concern is that Macafee blocked some content, which scares me. I could have inspected the blocked content, but why take the risk? On Wizzley any content that needs to be blocked is quickly eliminated by the management, and I like it that way.

The other concern is that it seems more commercially driven than Wizzley is. You pay 2.95 dollars a month, not bad, but the fact that you have so much control indicates that you probably need to be more astute about computer advertising than I am. I think that ill declare is an honest site, but Wizzley has a certain genteel, civilized character about it, which I like and where I feel at home.
