How to Get Paid for Freelance Writing

I’ve been a freelance writer for a while, but only recently started to earn substantial money from my work. Freelance writing is an extremely competitive market, but it’s not totally impossible to make moneyβ€”or a careerβ€” out of it. I have a few resources for blogging and business, working from home and book writing, but I really wanted to compile a list of sites to help you get paid for freelance writing. Happy writing! πŸ‘πŸΌ

      Awesome!! I hope these sites will be helpful 😊

  1. Hi Jasmine. With the ability to do freelancing and getting paid, you could really just leave the United States and become a digital nomad traveling the world. Are you tempted to just leave and do that? I’ve met a number of people on twitter who do comparable things. This seems like truly location independent work and you could be sitting in a coffee shop in Chiang Mai Thailand doing it πŸ™‚

      Hey Michael! I have actually given that a thought, but after living out of the country I want to be home in the states for a while 😊

  2. I’ve been thinking of writing for freelance magazines, I’m looking now into magazines that would publish my writing. Thanks for this post and Thanks for stopping by my blog, nice to meet you.
