Free Webhosting Sites

Blogger
Blogger is one of the most popular free webhosting sites in the world. The biggest perk about Blogger is their parent company, Google.

Users can purchase their own domain for $12.

Wix
Wix is not as popular as WordPress and Blogger, but it is has a huge number of users. In addition to creating a regular blog, users can create an online store with Wix. According to Wix's, you do not need any tech skills, you can create your site on your own with their drag and drop feature. Wix aslo offers premium packages.

Weebly
Last but not least, Weebly, is another free option for you. Weebly is a good idea for people wanting to add a shopping cart on their blog. Users can also upgrade to a package plan as well.

Both, Mylot and Chatabout are sites where members are paid to chat. Each site has their similiarities and differences. Below, you will find a list of similarities and differences of the two paid to chat sites.

Similarities

Getting Paid to Chat
This is the obvious similarities. User's will not get rich off their earning from either site, but why not earn some money for things you do for free on Facebook.

PayPal Redemption
Both sites only allow PayPal redemptions. If you are not fond of PayPal, you will not be able to cash out on either site.

Other Earning Opportunities
If you want to make some extra money on both sites, you have the option to do so. Chatabout has the Bonus page and Mylot has the Offers page.

Creating a Topic
If you want to post a disscussion, question, news article, or post, you can do it on both sites.

Differecenes

Location
Mylot differs from Chatabout because the site shares users location. The good things is you will know where the person you are chatting with are from. On the other hand, you might not want your location exposed. Last but not least, both sites accept users outside the United States.

Earnings
Chatabout pays their users in points that can be redeemed for cash and prizes. Mylot has a point system but also give users a dolllar amount that is updated every hour. On Mylot, it seems like longer comments are rewarded with a higher monetary amount.

Navigation
It is safe to say that Chatabout is easier to navigate. The site has several different sections for users to comment in at the top of the page. These sections can be accessed for every page on the website. Mylot users have to click the explore button to get to the newer topics.

Payout Thershold
This maybe the biggest disadvantage for Mylot, Chatabout, has a lower payout threshold. To request a payment from Chatabout, you will need 10000 points ($5); Mylot users can cashout at $10.

GPT sites are popular online earning sites that I consider the one stop shop for earning money online. The main drawback about gpt sites is the earning potential, is gpt sites slow earners. To answer your question, it would be a yes.

Why are GPT Sites Slow Earners?

Low Pay in General
GPT sites are low earners because they offer low pay in general. The different task do not pay a lot. With that being said, you should not expect to earn a lot of money from these type of sites.

Points
Many gpt sites pay members in points that can be converted to cash payments and prizes. Most sites have a low conversion rate.

It Has to be That Way
This is so, because these sites have several thousand members. If these sites were to pay a large amount money per task, they would not be in business long.
In closing, gpt or get paid to sites are good paying hobbies. Check them out for yourself.

What I like about Shorte.st





Photo Credit: Pixabay
I joined Shorte.st last fall. Since joining the link shortener, I have had okay progress, however, it is the best link shortener I have used. Below is my opinion of Shorte.st.

What I like about Shorte.st
There are several things I like about Shorte.st For starters, Shorte.st offers multiple ways to earn, using their scripts and other features. I like the following features about Shorte.st: it works on Blogger, they pay via PayPal, and it has many features.

It Works on Blogger
I have tried two link shorteners before Shorte.st, adf.ly and Linkbucks. Adf.ly scripts never worked, and Linkbucks scripts worked for a few months but stopped working. I was relieved when I the Shorte.st scripts worked on my blog.

PayPal
If you earn money online, you are aware that PayPal is the most used payment processor, and Shorte.st uses PayPal to process payments. I already had a PayPal account, which I happen to love.

Many features
I really like the features at Shorte.st. I like that you can add the features into one script and not have one option. For example, users can create one script that includes entries, exits, and clicking on the links within the blog. I also like that bloggers can use quick link. Quick link, allows users to put http://sh.st/s in front of links; here is an example, http://sh.st/s/http://makingextradollars.blogspot.com/2015/11/write-for-article-document.html
 
In closing, I highly recommend using Shorte.st. In addition to the things listed above, members are given access to a colored system that distinguish the amount they made for each category (entry, exit, and clicking on links).
