My current Niume profile photo.
I’ve joined a blogging/writer’s community called Niume. I first heard of this site through Jacqueline, another WordPress blogger at acookingpotandtwistedtales.com! Not only can you use Niume to promote your writing, but you can earn money from having your posts read and viewed! Niume is a social network for writers, artists, photographers, and other types of creators to share their art and generate a little income as well.
Users on niume.com generate $1 for every 1,000 views. Niume pays out at the end of the month after you’ve reached $10. They use Paypal for their payout. Viewers, however, do not have to subscribe or pay to read the material. The visuals are great, and the format of the posts looks appealing, with a user-friendly layout. Creators at Niume also get paid $1 for every creator they refer who joins up on Niume and creates at least one post. If you are so moved, please use my referral link:
It is greatly appreciated! But first, a little more explanation:
All this promise of earning a few bucks really makes me want to write more! To be honest, I just started, but I am so pleased about the amount of views I’m receiving. You must choose three spheres of interest and write articles, stories, features, etc. that fit within one of those chosen spheres. My spheres are lifestyle, literature, and photography. Art, Travel, and “Interesting” were pretty eye-catching as well. Each post also has to be five lines of text (no sweat), and you may attach a photo to a post. You can attach videos, too.
What does this mean for my WordPress account? I don’t plan to leave. I love the WordPress blogging community! I plan to continue to post for the #weekendcoffeeshare and one of the Flash Fiction challenges (almost) weekly. I may, at times, post certain other articles there first and then share them here, or such is the plan, anyhow, as I can say I have tried and it’s totally possible. Any post I put in Niume can be shared here and on social media that includes Flipboard and Stumbleupon. Which, in turn, means more exposure as a writer! Users can subscribe to other content creators on Niume for free. You can share a Niume creator’s posts and give it a thumbs-up like, also known as hype, to help their status. Sometimes, Niume will choose a creator’s article to feature (imagine the exposure)!
There’s even a Facebook group called Niume Writer’s Community, which I’ve just joined. I am still learning a few things, but after 70 views in one day, I am excited by this new adventure! If you’re wondering whether the site looks busy with ads or terribly spammy, please visit my most recent post, a poem about sisterly love as friends grow and change: https://niume.com/post/252998
