I've been a work-at-home mom since 2001.

It's not really a secret, but how to get to the TOP of the list is very difficult. You have to do a bit of everything - writing quality content, sharing it in order to get views, etc.  If you are active and made zero, chances are you were flagged for something. It seems that anyone from the community can flag you (whether or not they have a legitimate reason) and your earnings will be frozen. It's happened to many people. Most have contacted SW and they research it and remove flags and let you know what, if anything, you were doing wrong. Plagiarism is a big no-no, of course. But they also want to see different people viewing your stuff. If it's the same few people, they know you are in a "sharing circle" and that will go against you as well. It's definitely become much harder, with more competition.  I was making very little, then did really great when they first switched to articles and now I'm back to almost nothing again. :( But even my husband, who rarely does more than tweet a few, makes something every day. So, if you had zero earnings, I'd message them through facebook

The part of sharing circle - I get why they would be against that, it's basically just playing the system. But, at the same time, I don't partake in them but I usually get the same people commenting on my stuff. :/ So hopefully they don't end up mixing that stuff up..

@pumpkinrat That's just it - if I post on my facebook wall, it's generally the same people commenting. I can't control that! But I try to share my stuff in more places. I know I get more views, but many people don't want to join just so they can comment. And the annoying pop-up window to join is a bit overboard when it keeps popping up multiple times

@yousavedhowmuch I share on Tumblr, but I don't think the people reading are signing up and commenting. Most of my comments are just from the same people already on here, from us commenting back and forth basically. I mean, I get why sharing circles aren't cool; but at the same time, it might hurt people who are not partaking in sharing circles if they don't really look that much into.

@judy_nealy  I don't find it so hard to earn, I generally try to find new people to connect with daily and go looking for items I think are interesting and go look at them. So many of my shopswell connects have the same interests as I do. More so since it is now the summer time and with the change of season new garden items are out. I have also begun Christmas shopping (Yes I said it Christmas shopping) so I have been able to find quite a few great items that I actually ordered. I like unique items to give such as hammocks, yesterday I ordered a habachi grill. If you scout around there are  so many great items. But please make new friends and connect, you will find you  earn more. I find shopswell fun and exciting as well. Hope this is helpful for you
