10 Sites that Pay for Guest Posts (Up to $1,500)

Show All
Here’s a list of ten blogs and websites that pay for guest posts and articles. Included is a wide variety of topics, including news, book review, Atlanta, Home Auatomation, Card Playing, economic justice, and more.If you’re not sure how to approach these companies — or how to find the right types of publishers for your writing — I encourage you to take a look at The No B.S. Course on Freelance Writing. It’s now open for enrollment until Friday.

One of the students of the course just posted a very insightful note. The comment that stood out to me:

“As we all probably know, there’s no shortage of advice on the internet. I found it all overwhelming and often conflicting. So instead of spinning my wheels and going in 4 directions at a time, I did the course work, worked out a schedule and kept at it. It’s now starting to come back around.”

I like this comment a lot, because it’s not about avoiding the work that leads to freelance writing success. It’s about doing the right work. I like The No B.S. Course on Freelance Writing because it lets you avoid the many pitfalls that new freelance writers often encounter, letting you focus on the steps that lead to a successful writing career.
