Guest posting is a normal phenomenon and it’s often welcome by many bloggers. With a platform like My Trending Stories (2019) having an account with them is a blessing in disguise. Also with such a huge platform like MTS blogging community often must pay to get their article published and not the other way around.
However, during the first year of its inception, My Trending Stories sent emails and solicit bloggers to write for its platform as you can see above. This has created some misunderstanding from bloggers.
The owner of My Trending Stories told Online By Andrew that he has great vision for this platform. He wanted to give something back to its people. The owner of this platform is working hard under the hood to make this a reality.
Imagine you just write and your articles are published and ranked and traffic pouring in and you make money. Instead of having your own blogs and taking care of your own SEO and other technical details you can just write and earn money from your work on this platform. Thus it is a vision of the owner of My Trending Stories.
The truth is “My Trending Stories” never promises for paid content only that bloggers can make money via ad revenues that generated via Google Adsense and another ad network from their own content on the MTS platform.
Is MTS a scam? It is definitely not! The platform is currently not making any revenue at this writing and they are still working under the hood to make earning a revenue writing for MTS a reality. [09/04/2019]
As of this writing, MTS has not re-opened to the public yet. They are working overtime to add features that help bloggers making money with their blogs on this platform.
Go here and sign up and we’ll keep you posted when the platform is opened again.
