You love writing? You want extra cash? You have access to the internet? Perfect! You can now earn extra income or even full time income from the comfort of your own home through writing articles for online publishers. However, now you have the nasty business of actually finding places that will pay for said articles. That is why I come in. Here is a list of the wonderful places online that will pay you in cash for your written word! It is a quick, easy list with links my dear!
Most people have heard of Cracked
, if not obsessively wasted hours on their website reading articles upon articles of content into the wee hours of the morning. Got creative and hilarious ideas? Have loud opinions and facts to back them up to share with the world? Perfect.
#2. College Humor
is right along the lines of Cracked. They have articles and lists on pretty much everything and anything that could honestly come to mind, at least it seems that way. If you love being witty and humorous then definitely hop on the article writing bandwagon and get typing!
#3. WOW Women in Writing
WOW: Women in Writing
is really for those ladies out there. They have a variety of written content and are always looking to support more women writers, plus the best part is that they pay for their content. That means you get submit and then will pay you if they publish your written piece. You get more exposure and a pay check, win-win!
I recently discovered iWriter
and it looks amazing! When you move up the ranks and build your client base then you can end up earning up to $80 per 500 words! You can write as little or as much as you want, so free up that schedule and earn some money! You get to choose the topic that you feel passionate or knowledgeable about, so the sky is the limit my friend.
is all about product reviews and they take them very seriously. (Honest. They say it right in the front page when talking about submitting reviews.) So there are a bit more requirements for this site, however if you are willing to stick to the list and review some products then this is the perfect site for you. They want real reviews, so keep in mind that you actually have to use the product. You can use photography and video for reviewing as well, so get creative!
works a bit differently form other sites, since you are making earnings from the ads and affiliate programs rather than a cash payout per word or article. This means it may take longer to create any larger sort of revenue and even the site directly says that even after a few years of great articles most people usually only make around $50 to $100 a month. So this seems like a great site to get exposure and writing experience, but definitely takes dedication to see a larger profit.
#7. Listverse #8. TopTenz
Love making lists? Enjoy writing interesting and creative content? Listverse
are definitely for you. These sites are all about lists and especially those catchy top ten ones. Last time I heard, listverse will pay you $100 per list and toptenz will pay you $50. That is some good paying lists right there!
#9. Self-Publish a Book on Amazon Kindle
Have a novel that you always wanted to read, but no one has wrote it yet? Write it yourself! Anything and everything is open to you. So take a leap and type up the next bestseller!
#10. Ask to Guest Post on a Blog
There are many successful blogs out there that are in demand for more and more articles, so much so that the blogger or company just cannot keep up, so that is when you step in and save the day! Offer to guest write some articles for their blog for a fee of course, plus you get exposure for more people to see your fantastic writing abilities!
#11. Start Your Own Blog!
Want to start your own little corner of the Internet world? Go to Bluehost
, download WordPress
, and bam you got yourself a brand spanking new blog. Now that you have a blog make sure to fill it to the top with wonderfully written articles. You can write about everything and anything. This can be a dream come true, however realize that blogs that earn money often take a great deal of effort and time, so maybe check out these other options while working that blog on the side.
