100+ Websites That Pay Writers
by Carol Tice
Let’s face it — most blogs don’t pay for guest posts. It’s considered a marketing activity by the writer, who gets a link back to their site.
That can be worth it, too. I’ve gotten some amazing connections and clients from blogging on popular sites.
But I believe writers should be paid for their work. And sites that take guest posts still get a piece of writing out of the deal.
So I did a crazy thing…
Back in late 2010, I did something sort of nuts — I decided to start paying for guest posts.
At the time, my audience was pretty small and I was still earning most of my living from freelance writing.
It didn’t make economic sense on the face of it. I just thought it was the right thing to do.
I needed to put my money where my mouth was. I hoped I might inspire (or is that shame?) some other bloggers into paying for posts as well. I also hoped being different from the norm by being a paying writing market might get this little blog some attention.
