In this article I am going to introduce a new blogging platform using which you can blog and also make money from it. PennyPen is a new social blogging platform that pays their users for blogging on their platform based upon your activity. There are many free blogging platforms like wordpress.com, tumblr, hubpages etc but none of them pays their users directly. You have to monetize your blog with ads. But PennyPen takes care of the monetization. They share the revenue generated to their users who are active, read on.
