50 Sites That Pay Bloggers to Write!


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! 

As bloggers I know that you love what you do and you’re passionate about your topic but let’s be real — we all want the ability to make some money on the side!

One of my fav ways to make some extra cash is freelance writing. It fits perfectly into my skill set because I’m already technically a professional blogger.

Plus, I love writing so much that I do it for free! Might as well get paid for it too right?

I see tons of bloggers that do sponsored work for brands and make money by reviewing some type of product or service.

What if I told you you could make about the same or even more money from writing without having to have a certain amount of traffic, a certain number of followers on your Twitter or Pinterest account, and you don’t have to bombard your followers with products on a weekly basis?

You can do all of this by freelance writing for clients. What’s even better is that if you can find 2-3 clients that will work with you on a consistent basis, you can set yourself up with consistent income every month!
