I have registered with YourOnline.biz, A Fine Parent and have written to WOW! Women on Writing. Hope I will be able to hear from them soon. By the time will try to explore some other related guest posting websites.
Thanks for sharing this list. Take care :)
You are welcome, Manidipa.
I am glad you are taking action. Hopefully they will contact you back. Let us know how it goes.
Hi, live in South Africa and I would really like to earn money online, I have checked out your site and there are a lot of opportunities, but most of them are not applicable to South Africa, can you direct me to jobs applicable to SA as well.
Lucy, unfortunately most of the opportunities I know are available to folks in the U.S. and a few other western countries.
However, the sites mentioned in this post accept writers from all over the world. Have you tried them?
These seem like great opportunities. I hope there are no hidden catches, but so too often, there is.
There are no hidden catches, Suzanne. Of course, each of these sites have their own rules and guidelines for the kind of content they accept, so if you give them the kind of content they want, you will be paid.
I can do most of these but don’t know if Nigerians are allowed to participate.
Most blogs don’t care where you live as long as you can write what they are looking for.
Thank you for sharing this amazing list of websites. As a new writer I found your article very informative. Hope to see some more informative articles from you.
I loved the list of writing sites and I even applied to some of them. Since I’m home and can’t really go nowhere these sites are great for someone like me to make some money to help pay my bills.
I’m a dog writer. I don’t see anything in that niche. Any ideas? Thanks.
Wendy, check out our bigger list of sites that pay you to write. Some of them accept posts about any topic.
Can you please share some vaild e-mail address to send a travel story?
Lidija, check out this post!
If nigerians are accepted how will they get paid since our country is not supported by pay pal
Some sites may offer other payment options like Direct Deposit, Check, etc.
You have these lists that are basically for women what about the men out here on a budget looking to write about addiction, life, struggles, and loss. Do you have any blogs that I could make money at like that. I barely scrape by and love to write. I just wasn’t sure if I could write to the other sites or not that were woman based
I see what you mean, Adam. Some of them are more geared towards women. But there are many that men can write for as well. #3, #5, and #7 are a few you can try.
For a bigger list, read our list of over 100 sites that pay you to write.
I can do many of the things I have seen here but the problem here is I’m from Nigeria I don’t know if Nigerians are allowed to participate
