|1/18/2018||The Guardian||Digital||Writing||$220||Terrible experience. Editor assigned story at 31p per word at 800 words. For two entire weeks after I submitted it, it sat un-edited. Suddenly one night she decided to edit it, without notice, and because I didn't respond to her questions within a 45-minute period (during which i was eating dinner), she cut the piece in half and published it, thus I was given only half the pay despite having done all the work. Terrible. I suggest making them promise in writing to pay you per words commissioned--not per words published--to avoid this happening again.|

|1/15/2018||Pacific Standard (Digital)||Digital||Writing||$300||Really slow to respond after handing in draft, very slow edits, and final version looked nothing like the edited version we worked on together. In total, the editor held on to the draft for more than 2 months. No pre-approval of draft before publication, either. Generally poor and slow editing. Not worth the money.|

Tired of writing for pennies (or peanuts or whichever cliche for crappy pay you prefer) and ready to earn money online for real?
We’re tired of it, too. That’s why Carol started paying for posts a few years back — and why she upped her rates to $75+ last fall. And it’s why we update our list of sites that pay on a regular basis.
Below is the new-and-improved, early 2016 edition of Make a Living Writing’s list of websites that pay at least $50 per post.
What’s included — and not
Rather than linking to the list we published last fall, we’re posting a comprehensive and updated new list. We’ve added new markets we learned of in the past 6 months and removed sites that have categories of posts that are below $50. That’s our minimum.
In some cases, these sites keep it on the Q.T. exactly what they pay. We’re including markets where freelance writers in our network report they pay more than $50, in order to bring you the widest variety of paying markets possible.
We also removed sites that are not currently accepting pitches, which knocked a good portion of the writing-focused sites off. Sites where you only have a shot at earning $50 writing on spec, or based on traffic or ad clicks, are NOT included. This is a list of markets offering guaranteed pay only!
The list runs the gamut of topics, from parenting and knitting to business and writing, so there should be something here for everyone.
As always, we appreciate any corrections or additions — please post them in the comments. Here’s the list:
Business, Career, and Finance
- B. Michelle Pippin pays $50-$150 for business-related articles.
- Note: This site is no longer functioning.
- Brazen (formerly Brazen Careerist) will pay if you pre-arrange it with their editor. They’re looking for posts about higher ed administration, marketing, networking, and recruiting and HR.
- CEO Hangout will pay $50 if you pre-arrange it with the editor — send a pitch and negotiate payment before writing the article. They run posts about the CEO lifestyle, success stories, interviews, and other reported features of interest to business leaders.
- DailyWorth pays $150 for articles about women and money. They list a blackhole editorial@ email address, but I recently tweeted them about how to submit a pitch, and they suggested hitting up the managing editor, Koa Beck.

They don’t have guidelines posted, but they told me to submit to firstname.lastname@example.org with the word STORY in your subject line.

- Penny Hoarder shares money-saving ideas. You’ll need to negotiate pay with the editors during the pitching process — and be willing to forego a link back to your site.
- Priceonomics The catch? Articles must be submitted on spec. They occasionally post requests for articles on specific topics, which might get you closer to that big paycheck. [NOTE: This pub’s writer’s guidelines now say they pay $50/article. Be prepared to verify/negotiate payment.]

Family and Parenting
- Babble pays $100-$150 for posts on parenting, entertainment, pregnancy, beauty, style, food, and travel. (NOTE: Babble’s writer’s guidelines are no longer easily found. You may have to do some sleuthing to find contact info for an editor.)

[UPDATE 12/2016: The website says they don’t pay, but exceptions are made if you discuss payment BEFORE submitting.]

When you apply, you set the rates you’re willing to accept; then, the platform emails you when appropriate opportunities arise. It’s not a bid site — fees are preset. But gigs are presented to multiple writers, and then the client chooses who they’ll work with. Luckily, there’s no elaborate application process, once your profile is set — you simply reply that you’re interested, and they let you know if you win the gig.

Tips for successful pitching
Before you pitch any of these sites, read the guidelines carefully and study the posts they’ve already run. Make sure you either have a fresh topic or a new way of exploring an issue they’ve covered before.
Paying markets are more competitive than posting on free sites. And the more bad pitches a site receives, the likelier they will reconsider whether they even accept guest posts, let alone pay for them. (Believe me, this happens, and it is the reason some sites we’ve listed before are no longer accepting pitches.)
