Internet business model: forum posting

I am a very active user of various forum communities and I am very glad to have found out about an opportunity to earn money by posting on forums. Any webmaster values quality content and if you are a person, who can produce good content and share your personal experience, then posting on forums for money could be right for you.

How to Get Paid to Post on Forums?

Several weeks ago I have found a great post on how to make money online with forums and today I want to share something I have learned from the site I have just shared with you. The service, which gives money for posting on forums, is called

Members receive points for posting on sponsored forums. Advertisers are looking forward to getting quality posts, which you will be providing. Every point is equal to 5 cents and you can make up to 2 points for every post.

This means that an average poster could make approximately $7.5 for every 100 forum posts and I don’t think that making that many posts per day is very hard. It makes perfect sense that posting on forums for money will not give you the advantage to make a full time income online but, as for me, something is better than nothing.

On some forums I have a profile with several thousand posts, I wish I were paid for any contribution but I did not know about back then. is a great site for making money by posting on forums. The minimum cashout on this website is just $4 and you can receive your money to PayPal fast. I think this work from home technique is very easy to do and it is profitable.

I do hope that you will have a lot of luck in earning money by creating forum posts, I will be writing more about making money by creating content, so please stay tuned.

Northern Ireland

Population: 1,597,000. Area: 14,121 square kilometres. Capital: Belfast (with population about 301,600 residents).

Northern Ireland consists of the north-eastern section of the island of Ireland. It is often called Ulster. Ulster was the name of a large province of Britain-controlled Ireland until 1920. In 1920, Great Britain separated Northern Ireland from the rest of Ireland in order to create separate governments for the predominantly Protestant north and the mostly Roman Catholic south.

The majority of the Northern Irish people, who are Protestants of English or Scottish descent, supported the separation. But many Roman Catholics in both the north and the south refused to accept the division. In 1921, the south became the self-governing Irish Free State, now the independent Republic of Ireland.

Northern Ireland continues to be united with Great Britain. Beginning in 1921, militant Irish groups, particularly the Irish Republican Army (IRA), attacked British government installations in Northern Ireland, hoping to force the British to give up control. Protestant groups retaliated. In the 1960s the Roman Catholic minority held marches demanding an end to economic and political discrimination. The police reacted with violence and riots broke out. In 1968, the IRA resumed its campaign of violence. In 1972, Britain established direct rule over Northern Ireland and sent in troops.

Land. Northern Ireland is a land of rolling plains and low mountains. The fertile plains cover the central part of the country, and scenic green valleys and low mountains lie along the country's coast. The countryside of Northern Ireland is dotted with smooth, clear lakes. Lake Neagh, the largest in the British Isles, covers 396 square kilometres near the centre of Northern Ireland.

Economy. About 20 per cent of the people of Northern Ireland live in Belfast, the capital and largest city. Belfast is also the country's manufacturing and trading centre, and many of Northern Ireland's linen mills, ship-yards, and aircraft plants are located there. However, the country's economy depends mainly on service industries, which employ about 75 per cent of the workers.

Since fertile pastureland is Northern Ireland's chief natural resource, agriculture is also an important industry. About 30 per cent of the population live in rural areas.

Life in Northern Ireland is like British life. Such sports as soccer, cricket, and golf are popular pastimes, and pubs play an important role in social life.

The Welsh Language

Wales possess an especially strong Celtic culture. It is to be said that Many Celtic languages have almost disappeared in the last several centuries but Welsh has showed an interesting resistance and is still used. Until 1825 about eighty per cent of the country population spoke Welsh. During the 19th century the number of Welsh speakers decreased and the reason for this was that many English workers and Irish workers traveled to South Wales. On the contrary Welsh people moved to the cities where population spoke less Welsh.

At school, children were punished for speaking Welsh. Recently, there has been more interest in Welsh. It is now spoken as a first language by more than 20 per cent of the population. It is used as a first language in more and more schools and it is studied as a second language in all other schools in Wales.

Welsh is recognized as a minority language by the EU and Wales receives money to help its language stay alive. There are television and radio stations with Welsh-language programs, even soaps.
