I have been a member of writing.com for 8 years. I can't compare WDC to other writing sites because once I found WDC I didn't feel the need to go anywhere else. The site does sell T-shirts {I own two} as well as other branded items, but I have never felt pressured to buy anything, and I have never seen a promotion or ad for any of the things they sell. Buying something in their shop is a way to help support the site, nothing more.
I have made many friends on the site and the help I've received from other writers over the years has been invaluable to my growth as a writer. I came to WDC with very little writing knowledge, and now I've had 9 short stories published in magazines and anthologies.
Reviews are important to writers, and yes, some reviews are not helpful, but most of the reviews I've received have been quality critiques that have helped me to improve my writing.
The site is easy to navigate, and I have yet to meet anyone there who would not help in any way they could. If you have a question about writing, whether the question is about copyright laws, the technical aspects of writing, or just looking for ideas, you'll be able to get accurate answers to your questions. The members are come from all other the world and they have at least one thing in common, a love of writing.
Contests: Anyone can create a contest on the site, and while you do have to be a paid member to enter the monthly site-sponsored contests, the cost for a basic membership is only $19.95 a YEAR. There are groups on the site that help pay for memberships for those members who can't afford to pay themselves.
The site's currency, gift points, can only be used on the site, but if a member is active and enters contests he/she can earn enough points to pay for their yearly membership as well as the site's branded items.
Some sitejabber reviews have mentioned that they don't receive many reviews; you can't expect to join the site, post a few stories or poems in your portfolio and then sit back and wait for the reviews to roll in. By being active on the site, you are in effect promoting your own work,. The activities are almost endless; contests, groups for nearly every interest, forums, classes, are all ways to be active and have fun while learning. Besides, if you don't give reviews to other writers why complain that you're not receiving reviews?
Writing dot com has become my writing home away from home.
