How to Make Money Writing Articles

Writing articles and/or blog posts is probably the easiest way to get started writing for other people. There are so many companies out there that hire freelance writers, but you need to research them and decide if the pay rate is good enough for you or not.

A great place that I like to use whenever I am not sure about a company is Reddit. In case you’re not aware, Reddit is not your usual social media platform. What I love about it is that people tend to be brutally honest on Reddit. I’m an avid Redditor and I love hanging out there and discussing different topics. If you want to check out if a company is legit, all you need to do is Google something like “x company review reddit” and you will find different threads with people’s opinions and experiences. 

You can find article writing jobs all over the internet, but I personally like to use the Pro Blogger Job Board. Clients on this platform tend to be high quality with a track record. You will find different types of article or blog writing jobs with different requirements. The great thing about Pro Blogger is that you can find gigs in almost any niche.

This is probably a few steps further than writing articles or blog posts, but a lot of people make a lot of money self-publishing.

No need to pay a publishing house or have a massive stock of books anymore. Whenever someone orders your book, Amazon takes care of printing it and shipping it. 

Get Paid to Write Fiction

Just like writing books, you can also publish your fiction on KDP. However there are a lot of websites that pay you to submit your fiction. Here are a few to get you started:
