Make Money With Freelance Writing-Top 12 Places to Find Work

Updated on February 22, 2011

Are you looking for a way to make money online? Do you love to write? Wish you could stay home and write about anything you like and still get paid? Now you can! This article will share 12 top sites that will pay you to write for a living.

Making money from home has never been easier

There are so many new opportunities popping up online these days that anyone who has the desire to do some research and work hard, can learn what it takes to stay home and make some money. There are sites that are geared to help you replace your offline job, and there are sites that will just help you generate some extra weekly cash.

Writing has become one of the more popular ways to earn money online. Blogs and websites are created by the hundreds every day around the world. But in order to keep a profitable business getting traffic, you must have fresh new content. Not everyone has the time or ability to write this content, thus freelance writers are finding it easy to make an income online.

I have been a freelance writer for roughly three years now. While I do have private clients, I like the ability to write for myself and still earn an income.

Sites that Offer Writing Jobs

The following is a list of 12 places online where you can find work getting paid for your writing. Whether you are just beginning or have been at it for years, you should be able to find an opportunity that will work for you. I know there are other places out there, these are just some of the better places I have come across.

Sites that Will Pay for Articles with Revenue Share and Pay Per View

If you would like to start making money from home doing what you love, there is no reason why you can't get started today. Start building up a residual income so that a year from now you will be able to quit your day job or only have to work at a part time job outside of the home. With the invention of the internet, more and more people are being able to get working in a field where they would love to be instead of just having to work for someone else in order to pay the bills.

It can be done, and more and more people each day are finding that out!
