It has been awhile since Smorty has been down. I still have some earnings there and have been waiting to get paid. Smorty used to pay weekly but that was a thing of the past. When i asked them about my payment, they told me that they are in the process of cleaning up. They said there are bloggers who delete their posts after they get paid and that is what they are doing right now - to go after those bloggers. I hope it comes back soon and does nto run with the bloggers' earnings that they worked so hard for.
