I'd love to, but don't have the time right now. Maybe some other time

Hmm, this sounds like a side hustle kind of gig. What would the weekly time investment look like?

I could be wrong, but I would expect earnings to be negligible, maybe a dollar per 1,000 impressions on the article, depending on the share of the money you get. If you're interested in writing reviews as a hobby, then maybe it's for you. But on the plus side, if your content is really good, it could help grow the site into something that could bring in the big bucks.

But yeah, I don't work for VGC and I don't mean to dissuade potential writers, as I'd like to see us grow. Just putting that out there.

The current rate is $10 per 1,000 unique hits on the writer's articles each month.

So going by the views per article, that would mean about 10-30 dollar per article.

Not enough to feed your belly on it's own, but if you can make some earnings from your hobby while you have another main income, why not give it a try?

Yeah, that actually isn't bad at all, and if free review copies are sometimes given as well, that sweetens the deal even more.



I'm applying. My site has some articles and review samples. Just posted my impressions of the new Oninaki demo that dropped today.

Unique views, not total views.

Writing for this site has been really enjoyable, so I'd encourage anybody remotely interested to give it a shot. The other writers are a friendly bunch, and the pace here is laid back enough that there's rarely any pressure to get anything published, you can mostly do it as-and-when.

So this is less a side hustle and more like a hobby that brings in a little bit of cash? About how much time do you feel the need to invest in this each week? And how much do you actually end up investing? My job is full time plus overtime, averaging 50 hours a week, so I wouldn't be able to put a ton of time into this, but it might be fun.
