Pro: Wikinut Has a Great Writing Community
I just wanted to start this article by saying how great the community of Wikinut is. There are many writers on Wikinut that share their interests, passions, and candid advice - and I think it is a great place for writers to grow and learn.
Wikinut has the best community of writers that I have come across online.
Writers need and want feedback, and that is just what Wikinut provides.

A Pro Followed By A Con
So here I am, at article #51, and it marks a big milestone for staying active on Wikinut.
Why is that, you ask?
Mainly because Wikinut is a paid-to-write site, and I have yet to be paid - 50 articles in.
Let's compare to writing for "that other site," which we dare not speak of around Wikinutters.
I have posted 76 articles on Yahoo! Voices, three of these articles have been published on Yahoo! Finance, Yahoo! News, and Yahoo! Sports, and I have received several awards with monetary prizes. All articles pay per 1000 page views.
My writing profile on Yahoo! Voices can be viewed here.
By comparison of payment, Wikinut lacks in giving new writers motivation to continue writing, if they wish to make a living.
However, I do think that as a writer builds and develops his resource library, amassing a substantial amount of articles, then he will reach the "making a living" part.
Keep in mind that at 50 articles, I have received around 13,570 page views from being on Wikinut about 5 months. These page views are purely organic, and I have not put any amount of work into juicing the links, if you know what I mean.
Let's compare to the other site: There, I have 76 articles, with 58K page views, here I have 50 articles, and 13.5K page views.
Steady payment and exposure goes to "the other site."
Just Hang On There Buddy
Aside from missing the monetary motivation to continue writing at a Paid to Write site, I do feel the need to hang on for at least a little while longer.
Writing for Wikinut is more fun and enjoyable than for the editors at the other site. While I continue to submit articles there, I would much rather write for Wikinut and have great feedback, and write about Christian topics that interest me.
The downside for writing for a major publishing news website is that you have less freedom to choose your own topics.
If you enjoy writing and love getting feedback, then write for Wikinut. SIgning up is free, and you may actually find a new hobby in writing.
Fun and enjoyment factor goes to Wikinut.
Diverse Community Found on Wikinut
Another great reason to write for Wikinut is the diverse community of authors. Here, you find writers from all over the world, with a wide range of expertise in many different areas.
You can sit and read great articles and keep reading until the cows come home.
Such a diversity of ideas and thoughts will make your writing skills improve, as you gain new perspectives on many topics.
Diversity of writing community goes to Wikinut.
Many Reasons to Love Wikinut
In conclusion, Wikinut has many positive reason to join and stick with its site.
The reality is this: You can do a lot of things for money, but there are more benefits you can gain from taking part in the Wikinut community of writers, that cannot be gained at other paid to write sites.
You will only find out these precious perks if you stay awhile, and take part in the writing revolution.
