Life123 Update and Earnings

For those who don't know, I started writing for Life123 the last few days of October. After the first article is submitted, it goes through an editorial process. If it is accepted, you are then allowed to submit up to 10 articles in a 30 day period and are known as a contributor. I had my article accepted and promptly filled my 10 article quota.

Now I am in the process of waiting until I can submit more articles while I get enough views for the next level. At that point, I will be able to submit 40 articles per month. You need to have 500 views across all of your articles and have written 10 articles. As of this morning, I am at 222. I am adding views at a rate of 5-10 per day and would suspect that about half way through December, I could start adding articles at an increased rate. Although, if every reader of this blog started visiting my articles, I could probably accomplish this sooner.

After an article receives 50 total views, you receive $5. I have achieved this level on 2 of the 10 articles and so have earned $10 for the month. The next highest article has 24 but I don't think it will reach the 50 article view level until sometime in December. My goal is to go after the low hanging fruit on Life123 and create a steady stream of income that can be used for additional online income opportunities while I build residual passive income.

I have posted on how one can create a decent at home income that utilizes upfront payments. I am not entirely sure what my next steps will be. I have strongly considered trying to set up a small niche site that would focus on AdSense and maybe a little affiliate income. I would probably prefer to go that route prior to building out a larger website so that I can make my mistakes on a smaller scale.

Anyway, I just wanted to share the Life123 update. I have written 3 articles just waiting for the next month or next level whichever comes first. And I am pleased about earning the $10 so far but payment won't happen until $20. As always, thanks for reading my blog. I appreciate it and hope that it is helpful.


  1. Hi,
    Been doing my part and visiting your articles at Life123 to help with the page views. Can only visit each article once a day to make it count.
    Good luck,

  2. Thank you so much for your support. I truly appreciate it immensely.

  3. There is an error in this article. It's 500 views, not 50 :)

    Anyway I have posted two articles there and have a third stuck in draft because the system insists there are obscene words in it when there are none.

    I sent in a tech support ticket to get this resolved as the article in question is a seasonal themed article and it needs every day it can get this year to build up page views.

  4. Elven,
    Actually, you get $5 for the first 50 views. I have 2 articles in that category. You get another $5 for the next 500 views (total 550) and then $10 for the last 500 views (total of 1050) after which you can no longer earn.

    I am going after that first 50 on all my articles and will take whatever I can get after that.

  5. Hi Kidgas,
