Links to 'Earn Money Writing' Sites

Updated on March 6, 2015

Nowadays, there are many websites that are popping up that invite people to write web contents.  Because there are so many of them, most of us probably never even heard of some of them.  Some offer better training for your writing and some offer better earnings.  You may even find that some of them offer both; good training and good earnings.


If you want to join in any of the sites introduced here, please review their writing and earnings program carefully.  Some writing programs can be a waste of time and effort especially if you join them because you want to earn online.  But if your purpose for joining writing programs is to give yourself training in writing and sharing your knowledge, then any one of them should offer good platform for your writing needs.


Wikinut is a writing site that many writers love, it is also a writing site that many writers hate. This site has become popular for its ability to generate numerous page views for its writers. One of the disadvantages this site has, is that even with a large number of page views, the earnings are still very low.

Are you confident that you are one of the best writers on the net? Then you just might want to try your hands on This Is Freelance. This Is Freelance is a free article directory. It is an exclusive community of writers who can write high quality articles. Payment will be split 60/40 in favor of the writers. You would need to have an AdSense account to be able to earn in this site. One disadvantage this site has is that they only accept a select few writers who can write high quality articles. Interested writers must submit a resume to be able to be accepted here.

If you love writing and reading fiction, then this must be the site for you. This site gives you a chance to write your own story. Furthermore, it gives you a chance to continue other people’s works. You write the first chapter of your story and people who are interested to continue your work will write the second chapter. So, after writing your story’s first chapter, you might find that there are multiple second chapters and so on. It depends on how many people would want to continue your story. You can also continue your own story if you like. Each story has multiple middles and endings depending on how many other authors of the site collaborated with you. Earn money opportunities are through ad revenue that can be seen on your chapter. If you love reading stories, you can visit this site and read the stories authors of this site had written.

If writing abstracts, summaries, and reviews of books, academic and study materials like thesis and dissertations, and any published materials like newspapers and magazines is your niche, you may want to write in this site. Contents in this site are in text only. You are required to write 300 words minimum and 900 words maximum. This site accepts 34 languages. You can also translate articles in this site to another language and still receive royalty payment. Also, if you want to read an article in this site but the article is written in a language you don’t understand, you “will be presented with the option of automatic translation into the following languages: English, French, German, Chinese (two dialects), Japanese, Dutch, Greek, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, Russian and Korean”. The automatic translation service may not be ‘high quality’ but you will be able to read the article in a language you understand. Earnings from the site are generated from the advertisements found in the site. You earn 10% commission on your abstract, summary, or review. You will earn 5% commission on your translations of any article on the site.

By looking at this site, they seem to have only a handful of writers. Anyway, this is also a writing site that lets writers use their site to publish articles. To be able to be paid by the site, you would need to have an AdSense account. They say that you will receive 75% of the impressions your articles generate.

      Hi Rebecca, I agree. And also some sites do well for others but not for everyone else. It's probably just a matter of knowing what to do in a certain site. :)

      It's hard to decide on the various sites, but one needs to think carefully and plan it out, for example Squidoo does really well for people if they are into computers, but not so much for say, books.

      I'm not sure about others, but the same thing might happen with the others, one topic or another does better.

      Hi Katyzzz, I'm not sure which site offer more money. Some sites may give you 80% of the earnings, still, if their site is not being picked up by search engines, it'll be hard to earn there. I'd like to tell you that fiction writing may be good in StoryMash but I don't know how good the site is. From what I've read, people there seem rude, but I don't know for sure.

      Some things you must know, though, some types of writing, like fiction and poetry won't give you much earning no matter which site you join.

      I'm not sure how much peanuts you've earned anyway. You may have already earned lots of peanuts and I still wouldn't know. :)

      If page views are slow for you, maybe you don't promote your hubs. You need to join social bookmarks so you can promote. Good luck, Katyzzz. :)

      This is a very popular hub, do you think other writing venues offer more money? I earn peanuts here and elsewhere but it certainly seems VERY SLOW here.

      Hi cgull. Glad you liked them and thanks for the new info you've added. :)

      Just to give my opinion, I don't think it's advisable to join most of them. Just choose the sites that you think you'd enjoy writing for. Unless we're fast writers, we'd be wasting a lot of time if we join too many of them.

      Another great Hub, wish I had more time otherwise I could explore them. Squidoo is a great place like Hubpages minus the interactions. It is owned by Seth Godin, marketing Guru.

      Agreed. Article writing has become the latest favorite hobby by internet users lately. I could be wrong but there sure are many participants.

      Thanks for dropping by, quicksand. :)

      Article writing has become the latest craze online I guess. Lots of people are turning to writing articles with a view to promoting their affiliate products.

      Thanks for the hub. :)
