5 More Freelance Blogging Markets at $100+ Per Post

Recently I shared some examples of blogs that pay $100 or more per post as an introduction to the new blogging markets section in my writer's market database.

As promised, I've been working hard to bring you bigger and better markets where you can pitch your freelance writing services. To give you a better idea of what you'll find in the writer's market directory (which has new markets added every week), here are some of the latest additions.

5 Markets that Pay Freelance Bloggers $100+ per Post

These five blogging markets all pay up to $100 per post, and sometimes more.


This site pays $50-100 for tutorials for developers. Topics of interest include AJAX, Javascript, PHP, Flash, Photoshop, and more. They also accept list-style posts, although those pay only $30-50 per post.


2. PhotoshopTutorials.wx

This website publishes Photoshop tutorials. You can query them by sending a picture of your Photoshop project's end result before actually writing the tutorial. They pay $150-300 per published tutorial. They also accept shorter quick-tips, which are paid at a rate of $50 per post.


3. Viator Travel Blog

Viator accepts both travel-related features and shorter "Things to Do" posts for its travel blog. Features should be 1000-2000 words long, and they earn $100-150 per post. The shorter segments come in at 300-500 words and are paid at a rate of $40-45 per post.


4. Treehouse Blog

The Treehouse Blog covers design, development and mobile development. They accept tips, tricks, and trend-focused submissions, and they pay $100-200 per published article.



The Copy Hackers blog explores CRO, design, and copywriting. They pay $150 per post from contributors coming from a background working with startups or in startup-support.


There are even more new markets in the writer's market directory, with ten markets added in just the last few days. Check it out and find more markets open to freelance submissions.

Would you like to see markets in a category not listed there? Contact me or comment on this post with suggestions. I'll be adding new markets on a regular basis, often on a themed basis (such as several new short fiction markets or parenting markets being published at the same time).

Do you run a blog or another publication that is currently and regularly open to freelance submissions? Do you have a favorite market that you'd like to share, and it publishes its writers' guidelines and payment terms (these must be public for inclusion in my database)? If so, submit your market suggestions today and I'll consider adding them.

Thanks for sharing!

    These posts are so helpful- thanks, Jen!

    I wonder if you could add a “Crafts & DIY” category? One site you could add is – I just sold them an original crochet pattern 🙂 Their submission guidelines are here:

      Thanks for the suggestion KeriLynn. 🙂

      I’m not sure I’d have enough markets up front for crafts to be its own category. But what I could do is set up a larger Hobbies & DIY category or something along those lines. Then, once that category starts filling out through my weekly updates, I can consider breaking some sub-groups off into their own categories. 🙂 I’ll set that up by Monday and make sure that market is added. Thanks again! 🙂

          Just a quick note to let you know a new Hobby Writers’ Markets section was added, as was the listing. Thanks! 🙂

      Thanks Anne. It usually just take a bit of Googling. But boy do they find ways to hide the gems under some obscure search terms sometimes. 🙂

      If you want to write about those kinds of experiences, you might have luck with markets that accept essays. You can find a few in the writer’s market directory on this site (the “writers markets” link in the green bar at the top of the site). But I would just Google something like [“writers guidelines” and essays and pay], without the brackets. You’ll find paying markets open to those kinds of personal stories. You can actually do the same for fiction markets. Check market directories like mine (or pay for access to for a little while), or tweak the search. It’s amazing how many good markets you can find just by tweaking the way you search. 🙂
