Nine Blogs that Pay Writers $50 to $150 for Guest Posts

  1. Dear Writers,Several years ago I got an email from a writer that basically said: “Everybody knows there are tons of blogs out there that pay writers, but I can’t seem to find them. Can you?”

    Needless to say, I took the challenge on. For the past several years, we have been doing just that, and more, at Freedom With Writing. Nearly every week, we uncover more blogs, magazines, and websites that pay writers. Ocassionally, we edit and compile them into publications such as The Paid Publishing Guidebook.

    This week, I’m presenting you with nine more blogs that pay writers. They cover a wide variety of topics, including culture, domestic violence, web programming, blogging, literary critcism, feminism, and race. (Thank you to Fatima Saif for her research!)
