Helium Helping Writers Fulfill Their Dreams

It’s my opinion that writers do what they do because if they didn’t find an avenue to share their thoughts, whether it’s a poem, short story or what they basically had for dinner last night, enter Twitter, they would virtually explode. Those who have a natural talent to write become great authors and are well known for their works. Others may start up a blog to get their work out among the masses in the hope that someone may recognize their talent and offer them a job.

The problem is that you don’t really know how good your work is beyond those people who stop by and tell you what a great job your doing. Are they being honest or are they just looking for a link back to their own blog? You will never really know, but there is a site that will allow you to expose your writing talent to a community of writers as well as being rated amongst others writing in a specific category.

I’m talking about Helium, a site that goes beyond giving you a medium to express yourself, as it also offers you the opportunity to earn money. The amount you make is dependent on the quality of your articles as the higher they rate the more potential there is to earn. The potential to earn is increased with every article you submit.



In my time there I’ve come to realize how important it is to take the time to rate the articles of others, as this is second only to the articles themselves. Helium know this to be true and so they make it compulsory that members rate a minimum of 10 articles a month to be eligible for a share in the advertising pool, but if you become a member I urge you to go way beyond the minimum as this will earn you more stars which can once again increases your earning potential. The rating of articles is easy and painless. You are presented with two articles that sit side by side and under each article are three options you can choose from. They are; By far, More and Slightly More. Once you’ve read both articles you rate the one you think is better.

Helium have also started the $1 Empty Title Bonus which requires a writing star which is different from the rating star. Can’t tell you too much about this as I’ve yet to receive a writing star, but then I have’t really put that much effort into it, you know that old time factor excuse.

There’s a vast amount of areas in Helium that you can post to, and if you can’t find one that suits you can actually start your own. What you will need to keep in mind is that just like having a niche blog there are certain channels in Helium that offer you a greater potential to increase your earnings. Channels such as finance, medicine, health, computers and technology will generate more interest amongst advertisers and readers alike bringing more people to Helium, increasing their revenue and the revenue of the articles that brought them there, quite possibly yours. As bloggers you probably already have a huge amount of material that you could post on Helium, but before you do I suggest giving each article the once over to see what you can improve on as quality is very important to Helium, as it should be to you.

Helium is not all about earning money. It’s also about improving your writing skills and offering help to others. Helium is a community with it’s own forum where you can ask questions and generally soak up the intellectual atmosphere.

I wish I could tell you more, but honestly I am still learning. The thing is that I have 50 invites that I can use to invite others to join and so if you think that Helium is for you just use my contact page to send me your first name, last name, and email address so that I can send you the proper invitation. I can assure you the utmost privacy and that I will never, ever abuse the information you have entrusted to me.

  1. I have seen lots of blog with the bad articles in their class but as they have good pr for their blogs that’s why the people for just getting the back links just praise them saying as you have done a very great job & This sometimes happens with the good blogger also so for them the helium is the best way to get some revenue for their priceless efforts!

    1. Hi Craig. Like everything in life, the amount that you can make out of Helium is dependent on the amount of effort you put into it, but like I said in the post, it’s not all about the money as Helium offers so much more. You can learn so much by becoming involved in the site, things that will in the end only improve your writing skills.

  2. I wonder which site is the best out of all of them as far as generating revenue. I have signed up for a few, but only written two articles for eHow. That network gives you some fast “friends” almost instantly after you sign up. Maybe I’ll check out this network too. :)

    1. Kristi, I’m sure that if you were to take a look at it you would agree that the praises I’ve written about it just doesn’t do it justice.

  3. I have used Associated Content and have been successful. I have not tried out Helium but after reading your post, I may check them out.

    1. Give it a go mate, I’m sure you won’t regret it.

  4. Just had a look and it does look pretty good, the problem I have though is Im useless at writing. Have plenty of knowledge which talking to someone on a one to one basis is great, but as soon as I have to write it down its all gone from my head. Must be a quick release valve somewhere, that’s on auto trigger when I open Microsoft Word.

  5. It is very good to hear that the hileium promotes the good writers but i have a little question ———does it accepts article in other languages also mean dutch or Spanish?

    1. Sorry Juanita but I believe that for now they are only accepting English articles :downer_ee: I take it from your comment that you speak three languages, man that is so cool. I struggle with two.

  6. Pretty cool post. I just stumbled upon your site and wanted to say
    that I’ve really enjoyed reading your blog posts. Any way
    I’ll be subscribing to your feed and I hope you write again soon!

    1. Hey April, you sure know how to lift a bloke’s spirit. Thanks, I really needed a lift today and you’ve come along at just the right time. I’m so glad you liked the blog and I really hope that you become a regular reader and commentator. :grin1_ee:

  7. Great post Sire!!

    I wrote something similar in my blog about articles.
    Here is a short excerpt of what I posted:

    “There is one thing that’s not a secret — in today’s world, where “Content is King,” writing is an important aspect of business. It seems like everything that is done online requires some type of writing.”

    I would like you to read more about it at:

    1. Thanks Felicita for your kind comment. I would love to read your article, in fact I’m on my way there right now.

    2. Yes I agree with you that all online activities including businesses rely upon AND require writing of some sort.

  8. Hi, I think helium is a great idea. I should probably give it a try. Being evaluated by other people maybe is not what I feel confortable with, but if you want to improve or start writting profesionally, you must simply get used to it. One thing is certain – you will be confronted with critique at one point or another. What I especially value is that Helium is also a forum for dialogue, a place where you can exchange thoughts with others, not to mention reading articles of other writers.

    1. Well said Nigel, I think you will do well if you every decided to join. As for having your work critiqued, it’s not all that bad.

  9. Helium is one of the few quality article sites I haven’t gotten involved with. So do you start earning from day one? Or do you have to wait until you get a star?

    1. You definitely need a ranking star, but I wouldn’t expect to earn too much until you have a few well ranked articles under your belt. Also, I’m not saying that you will make a fortune, although they have payed out a million dollars so far, but it’s like I always say, every little bit helps.

  10. Associated content seems like it pays more, but the links in the body are no-follow now. I think my articles make more money there, and they seem to have higher ranking in SERPs than helium, but I do use both.

  11. As a person who kinda writes article sometimes, I have to say that I’m very much afraid to show other people what I wrote and have them evaluate it. I guess that fear is the one thing that keeps holding me back to improve my writing.

    But maybe someday, I’ll give Helium a try. Sometime soon I hope.

    1. Believe me Terry when I say the experience is completely painless as you never know who rates you. Also it can definitely help in improving your writing as you compare it against those who are above you. You can also edit your articles (leapfrog) to improve it and get a better rating.

  12. I am not able to judge Associated Content as I am not allowed to join, being and Aussie and all, plus I didn’t think they approved personal links in Helium.


  13. Twitter:
    Yeah, at some point I’m going to have to give this a lot more attention that I have to this point. Thanks for the reminder, Sire.
