ReviewMe isn't the way forward
Now that I've had some time to settle into the ReviewMe way of doing things I've decided it has no real application for 99% of webmasters/bloggers beyond registering to get the initial payment. You see, you register, write a review of ReviewMe itself and they pay you based on how popular your site is (based on Alexa traffic rankings and the like) - which is nice, it means that I'll have $30 finding it's way to me at the start of the next month.
But there's a significant downside to this - unless you're the cheapest or the best you are very unlikely to receive any further work because advertisers need to select you specifically for their task, by extension they're not going to select a random blogging site from the middle of the deck are they?
None, really. PayPerPost allows you to "apply" for reviews but you have to write to the advertiser's requirements - so no bad reviews. You also don't get paid until 30 days after the review was written so that's not ideal considering the majority of us want instant payoffs.
Ultimately it's just not a means of regular income unless you're at the top of the pile where advertisers believe your opinion is worth more - if you're just another generic site you'll just be a needle in a haystack. So my advice is to register, write the review of ReviewMe and then not to expect any further correspondance from them. Looks like bloggers will need to continue their search for someone to pay them to write.
