There are a few available writing jobs.
You'll will spend a lot of time writing articles, and then the companies will have limited amounts of credits per month and then they will not pay you for your writing. I spent numerous hours researching and fine-tuning articles, and I was only able to earn a total of $11.50. If you get lucky and they decide to pay you for your article, it is still way less than minimum wage because you might send about 2-3 hours of research and writing for every 300-500 words, which comes out to be about $3 per hour. Also, Verblio can fire you at any time without any advance notice. If you write ONE article that does not meet their arbitrary standards, they reserve the right to fire you, and you will never be allowed to apply ever again.2

Back when it was Blogmutt, it was pretty good. When they switched to the new model of credits instead of subscriptions, the wait time for your articles to be bought got a lot longer. They also hired a lot more writers, and things got a lot more competitive. The pay is already low, so the fact that multiple writers end up competing on a single one-time topic isn't really fair. You might write a great article but someone else writes one too and the other one gets purchased, so you worked for nothing. Even if it does get bought, it can take weeks or months. It was good for some supplementary work until they suddenly shut me out of my account. I wasn't compensated for articles I wrote before that so I guess they gave them to clients and didn't pay me for them.
Don't waste your time. The model just isn't respectful to writers. You write an article without a guarantee that it will be purchased and without knowing how long it will take for clients to purchase them; find a better client or a content mill that pays a bit less but at least pays you for every article. Many Verblio clients reject articles for no specific reason, such as "didn't like the content" or "accepted something better."1
