Commenting on blogs and forums can lead to more cash in your pocket thanks to Postloop. Find out more about how Postloop works and how to succeed here.

What is Postloop?

Many of us online writers spend part of our days commenting on other writers' articles. Wouldn't it be great if we could get paid for our comments as well as our articles?
With Postloop, you can get paid for your comments. I started commenting here a few weeks ago and have already cashed in twice. You could earn up to $5 a day on this site - not a huge amount. But every little bit helps.
Postloop opened its doors in November 2010 and has already attracted more than 2 million comments. This Web site works on two levels. Forum and blog owners can use Postloop to attract more visitors to their sites. Writers can post comments to the forums and blogs and earn money while doing so.
I don't have my own forum or blog so I can't comment on that part of Postloop. However, if you have your own blog or forum, it may be worth checking out.

Getting Started on Postloop


To get started on Postloop, go to the site, sign up and make 10 trial posts at the Postloop Portal. This is a listing of several forums and blogs. Follow the directions, which are outlined in the frequently asked questions section of the site.
Postloop officials will review your posts and get back to you via e-mail within 24 hours. When commenting, be sure to review the comments carefully before submitting them.
If you are accepted, you will be given a rating based on grammar and the quality of the posts. Then, you can begin commenting. Be sure you subscribe to the post you want to comment on before you start commenting. Otherwise, your comments won't count.
If you are rejected, don't feel bad. In many cases, Postloop will give you another chance. They will let you know in the e-mail. However, some people's comments are judged to be so poor that they are not allowed to start commenting.

The Pros and Cons of Postloop


Writing for Postloop has its good and bad points, just like everything else in life. For one thing, the point system is complicated and hard to figure out. Another negative aspect is the amount of forums and blogs available to you. The higher your rating, the more places you can post. But if your rating isn't that high, many forums will be off limits to you.
On the positive side, commenting is easy to do. You can do it at any time of the day or night and go at your own pace. You can comment as much or as little as you want to.
Many of you consistently leave thoughtful, well-written comments on my articles and other articles which appear on this site. Judging from the high quality of comments I see here, I believe many of you would score a high rating and do well at this site.

How to Prepare For Postloop

Before you sign up and start making your trial posts, you may want to brush up on your grammar and punctuation skills. There's no shame in this. We've all made grammatical errors, including me.
Fortunately, you don't even need to leave the Wikinut site to review grammar and writing lessons. Two of my best pals here are experts at grammar and writing. Check out some articles by Marilyn Davis and Phyl Campbell
Jackalyn Ann, another friend and fellow Wikinut writer, recently wrote an article on online grammar checkers. You may want to run your test comments through an online grammar checkers before submitting them.
Why not give Postloop a try? At least, you could earn your daily coffee money from your comments.

Do Postloop pays on time. Or are there cases of delayed payments or no payments?

Ptrikha, yes, they do pay on time. It usually takes about two days. So far, I have not seen any cases of no payments whatsoever.

Good evening, Connie - I am so far behind in my reading it is pathetic. I've got about three of yours and this one was certainly worth it. Also, thanks for the mention. I appreciate that. ~Marilyn
