freelance writing sites

Note: Some links in this post contain affiliate links, which means I may receive a commission if you make a purchase. That’s actually one of the ways you make money blogging! Thanks for supporting my blogging dreams! 🙂

I’m pretty new to blog monetization techniques and as I continue to read and learn more about them, I’m realizing that it could take a long, long time before I ever earn any real money.

That’s not to say that all the work and effort is not worth it. Monetizing your blog can help you to bring in more passive income that say going in to work everyday for 40 years.

However, that doesn’t mean that newbie bloggers can afford to just twiddle their thumbs until the big blogging bucks come rolling in.

One way you can make money immediately is to offer freelance writing services on your blog. All you need to do is create a “hire me” page on your blog and BAM you’re in business!

To help you along the way check out these 15 sites that pay big bucks to their contributing writers.

Compose – Up to $700

If you’re a pro at databases and applications then this is definitely the writing gig for you! Compose will pay up to $200 for anyone who can write amazing detailed tutorials on all things database. They also run a contest every three months to see which article is their readers’ favorite and the winner gets an additional $500!

Parent Pick – Up to $350 

If you’re a mommy blogger in L.A. you’re in luck. This publication pays $50 for pieces on family fun, enrichment, party and holiday shopping and tips to other L.A. parents. They pay $100 to bloggers who already have their own audience. They pay an additional $100 if your article makes it to the top 5 on their site and an another $150 to the article that hits the top spot!

Christian Science Monitor – Up to $300

This popular publication is looking contributors in topics such as international news, people making a difference, books, and more! They pay between $200-$225 for most publications but pay $300 for a “people making a difference” feature. They give pretty good details on how to pitch for each category.

WPHub – Up to $200

This gig would be best for WordPress techies or WordPress design gurus! This publication is looking for articles on WordPress, WordPress design trends, best coding practices, and new plugins.

Eureka Street – Up to $200

Yet another software publication looking for techie writers! This site wants writers who can publish articles on step-by-step tutorials on installing and configuring software. If that’s you, get started by sending them a sample tutorial you’ve written.

Here’s another great opportunity for travel writers. Great Escape Publishing wants writers who can detail the art of getting paid to travel. If you haven’t quite gotten there, don’t worry.

    • proassistblog
