What are some good sites where you can make money by/get paid for writing stories online?

Preferrably genre fiction.

There are plenty of e-magazines, but my impression is that they don't pay very well and you still have to get your story accepted.
So scribbling something and expecting to make money isn't going to work.
Nonfiction is easier if you are expert in a field and can write well.

You can self-publish your books on Amazon:

Some people make good money doing this--but you need to promote the book.
