10 sites that pay you to blog

If you’re a blogger who wants to monetize their blog or looking to add more income streams then this post is for you!

You probably already know that you can make money blogging.  You’re going to learn 10 sites that you pay you to blog.

Ready? Here we go:

#1.) Linqia

This site can help you make money blogging month after month. It’s a sponsored post network. How do sponsored posts work?  You partner with a brand and write/post/video feature their product or service AND get paid to do so!

With Linqia, first, you just sign up. Then, once you’re approved, just sit back and wait to get offers.  They will come right to your email inbox. One of my VERY FAVORITE sponsored post networks. They make the process so easy!

After I signed up, I was notified a few months later of a post opportunity. I accepted and they provided me with all the materials to create a fabulous post (photos, creatives, a summary of the story, goals, etc.).  It was a breeze!

#2.) Blog Meets Brand

It took me several months to find this little gem. Another awesome sponsored post network. Their signup and notification process is similar to Linqia.  You apply to join the network, get approved, and then get notified when a match is available for you! For the same amount of work, this network paid about 50% more than Linqia.

#3.) Massive Sway

Massive Sway has my kind of setup! Once you register and are approved, you have access to all their offers. Just login and view all the opportunities. There are usually 9-15 offers every time I log in.  There are requirements for each offer (like # of required Twitter followers, etc.) so make sure you meet the requirements before you apply.

I love the thought of doing multiple sponsored posts and you can do them every single month for a great recurring income opportunity with your blog.  They also have an awesome Facebook group!  What does the income look like? Each opportunity is about 4x the amount of my first Linqia campaign and 2.5-3x the amount from Blog Meets Brand.


This one isn’t a sponsored network but an awesome way for you to get paid for professionally freelance blogging. How it works? Create a freelancer account (it’s free, with an option to upgrade). Then head over to Search and type in blogging, blogger, blog post, article, or something similar and browse opportunities.

You’ll see the project goals, possibly the budget, hours needed, etc.  If you think it’s a good fit, just apply! If the client is interested in you, he or she will reach out and send you a message, and then your project can be started if you both agree to the terms (price per post, project timeline, goals, etc.).  I’ve made over $300 part-time from Upwork (in just a few months)!

#5.) Pay U 2 Blog

Sign up and you’ll start getting opportunities pretty quickly.  I loved the layout of this site. The support staff were friendly and responsive but the pay was pretty low. If you don’t mind earning a few bucks here and there for a post, this might be a great fit for you.  Now that I’ve been blogging for almost a year, I’ve set my rates a little higher and sadly I had to leave this network.  Definitely worth checking out though.

#6.) Shareasale

This is an affiliate network. One of my favorites! How it works? You sign up as a publisher, get approved, then pick your offers and promote them on your blog.  You can promote them by writing a blog post, doing an email blast, social media, etc. Keep in mind, there may be restricted promo methods according to the advertiser so make sure to pay close attention to that.  I’ve earned $100+ since I’ve joined.

#7.) Fiverr

Fiverr is similar to Upwork. Instead of applying to projects, you actually create your gigs (jobs that you do like writing a blog post, designing a Pinterest pinnable, designing a logo, etc.) and post them in your profile.

Clients will visit and purchase. Then you fulfill the order by providing the service! It’s called Fiverr because most gigs start at $5.  I started my Fiverr project in mid-December 2016 and have earned over $300 since then (all part-time) with no promotion.  By the way, if you promote your gigs, you increase your visibility and can earn even more. Easy!

#8.) Clever Girls Collective

Head to this network and try out an application. I’ve applied 2 or 3 times and have been denied. I wish you much luck. I hear really great things about this sponsored post network but can’t share anything about my experience since I’m not an approved blogger yet. I will keep trying.  If you’re with Real Clever, comment down below to share your experience!

#9.) Social Fabric

A network that pays you to blog (sponsored posts again, I love them, what can I say?).  I haven’t made it into this elite community yet but I have nothing but nice things to say about them. If you get the opportunity to join, do it! Then come back here and tell us what you think! I will definitely apply with them in the future!

#10.) Multiple writing sites

You can get paid to write. Just head to Google and search “your niche + get paid to write” and review the results, applying to those that interest you.  Some examples?

Want a huge list of sites (92 to be exact) you can write for that will pay you at least $50? Here you go!

    Thanks for sharing

    That’s awesome sites. Out of them there are some top website which you will get paid good money. Like Fiver, upwork etc. But I liked your post because it gives more information about the other site. I will have a look. Thanks for information

    • Admin May 16, 2017 at 3:45 am

      Thanks for your input Sonia. Enjoy the process

  • Lizabeth May 4, 2017 at 7:11 pm

    I am very new to blogging. Do you happen to know if there is a minimum number of blog posts you have to have under your belt to qualify? At any rate, this is article is quite helpful. Thank you for generously sharing your knowledge with us newbies!

    • Admin May 16, 2017 at 3:47 am

      Hi Lizabeth, I think it would depend on which site you were talking about writing for. They all have their set rules. Check out the requirements and let us know if we can assist at all.



  • Belle May 10, 2017 at 5:20 am

    Awesome list! Thanks for the write up. As a new blogger looking to montenize my site, this list will come in handy.

    • Admin May 16, 2017 at 3:43 am

    Exactly what I’ve been looking for! Thanks for this!

  • Stephanie May 18, 2017 at 12:23 am

    Thanks for having this info out there. After you sign up and register with these sites do they require a writing sample as part of the application process? Or anything out of the norm in that part of the process?

    • Admin May 19, 2017 at 3:33 am

      Hi Stephanie,
      No, these sites don’t require a writing sample. Nothing out of the norm either. After you register, some let you apply to opportunities right away and others will contact you when there’s a project that’s a good fit.
      I hope this helps

  • Unknown May 23, 2017 at 9:43 am

    How old do you have to be for these sites?

    • Admin May 26, 2017 at 4:32 am

      Hi Target Girl online,

      I’m not sure on a case by case basis, so the best bet would be to ask them, the worse thing they can tell you is you are too young!

      Good Luck


  • Alexis Towle May 25, 2017 at 9:14 pm

    This is a great list! I tried applying for Upwork and was rejected because they had too many bloggers 🙁

    Hi!!! Do you know if these sites accept bloggers from abroad, and in Spanish? Or Spanglish? ????

    • Admin July 20, 2017 at 12:06 am

      Hi Andrea,

      I’m not sure, the best thing you can do is just email them. Good luck and let us know how you go.
