Get Paid To Blog – Writing Sites That Pay For Articles

Get Paid To Blog

I’ve made a list of writing sites that accept guest posts recently but today a treat is in order! If you wish to earn some extra money and get paid to blog,  these are the sites that might be suitable for you.

If you have a nag for writing which I assume you have since you’re reading this, and want to earn some extra cash consider writing an article for one or more of these sites.

Funds for Writers

This is a site that is designed to help writers earn money and it’s not like most of the writing sites. Funds for Writers accepts only articles that could help authors to earn money. Writing uplifting articles and offering an original way an author can make money are their conditions for acceptance.

Apply on their submission page. They pay $50 for original articles and $15 for reprints and you get author’s page with links in bio. Double treats!

Women on Writing

WoW is a site for female authors and professionals they would need (editors, publishers, etc).

The site pays between $50 and $150 depending on the type of articles you write. You also get a byline with links allowed in it. Submit here.

Be a Freelance Blogger

This site doesn’t pay all authors, it allows guest posts for those who only want to get published but it has a Pitchfest contests that can get you $100 if you win or $50 if you’re a runner-up. If you get there, you don’t only get paid to blog but you establish your reputation as well.

To apply for Pitchfest go here. The site allows you byline and links in it.

Writers Weekly is a site dedicated to marketing books and is run by Angela Hoy who runs BookLocker, an e-book publishing company.

To apply visit the guidelines page. Now, the site doesn’t allow any links in posts or bio page but you will have a bio page.

Make A Living Writing

This is a great site that pays for articles. And, it pays between $50 and $100 depending on length and other factors.

It credits you and you get an author’s page but it’s just a list of articles you wrote there and there are no links allowed. Hence, you won’t get traffic back to your site but it is still worth it because your name will get recognized. To submit, go here

I hope you’ll have some use from this. I’ll soon write a list of sites that pay for content that isn’t related to writing but is a great way to practice writing and you’ll have more options to get paid to blog.

Keep up and keep writing!

  1. Thank you so much for the follow and for publishing this great list. I’ll have to investigate these when I have time.

    Also, I nominated your site for a mystery blog award. I don’t know if you do those, but I think it’d be fun to learn something about the writers behind Writer to Writers. 🙂

    Either way, thank you for following me and for your great content! I look forward to reading and learning more.

    1. Hey, thank you so much for sating that. It means a world to me. As for the award I very much appreciate it but I was recently nominated and had it up before the move to self-hosting. Anyways, I’m re-reading The Chronicles of Death Foretold (one of my favorite novels ever) and if I could be a character I would be the narrator from The Ocean At The End of The Lane (read it recently and realized how much I changed in the last three years). But my opinions change rapidly as I read new things so nothing is fixed 😀

What are your thoughts on this?
