When I first working online, IZEA was the very first company that I signed up for. IZEA's owns the Payperpost, Inpostlinks, Socialspark and other programs where bloggers can monetize their blogs by writing reviews and running their ads.
Just like any other companies, IZEA started very strong. Opportunities for bloggers were abundant before but now, only few bloggers are being given assignment. I dunno if recession has something to do with it or it's because they ventured into stock investment or what.
I received some Valentine loots from them this year. I wish that I would receive more assignments from them again.
