It’s not like writing for a book or publication, a newspaper or a magazine, but blogging is extremely popular on the Web simply because we love sharing, reading, and hearing about new experiences and ideas. And, unlike freelance writing, you don’t have to answer to a client’s demand or write to follow a blog’s direction or scope.

Still, it feels even better if you get paid to write articles. Fortunately, you don’t have to manage a blog to actually make money out of writing.

Writers know how difficult it is to write a convincing piece on something they don’t really have interest in or don’t have enough knowledge or understanding about. But with these amazing sites here that pay for your blogging or writing, you can opt to write about how-to’s, reviews, serious pieces or offer your services for hire.
