Looking for new sites to post my writing and get paid
July 24, 2012 1:06pm CST
I've done freelance writing for over a decade. Right now, I'm not taking many new orders for clients as I'm working on other things and building my online business. However, I would like to find more websites where I can get paid for the odd article I want to write. I'm looking for places that publish original or allow me to re-publish my existing content. I would really like to get some upfront payment but can live with performance payments or revenue shares as long as they are sites where I can re-publish. I won't write original work without an immediate profit. I already know of Constant-Content, YahooVoices, Republish, Experts Column and Wikinut. Do you know of others? If any have a referral program and you're the first to add it to the list, feel free to private message me and I'll use your link.

There are dozens and dozens of them... it depends on your preferred style (direct, rev share, marketplace, etc.), how little you're willing to accept and whether you're willing to bid on jobs. I can't put a URL here, of course, since it's self-promotion but I maintain "master lists" of the various types on my forum, along with commentary from other folks who've used some of them.

Oh, yeah, I forgot about Helium. I did post some articles there way back. I'll have to check and see if my account is still there, since it's been inactive for so long. One thing I didn't like there was having to write to their titles - is it still like that?

Well there are several good publishing site I can think of: Squidoo for start. publish.us allows you to re-post (but only pays 0.4 of 1K views) There is good old Triond Redgage - you can post link or re-post articles. Gather (if you are an American) and this is just what currently pop into my mind. If you want more names, I'll go search for them.
