Freelance Blogging Markets Paying $100 or More

There are a few changes coming to the All Indie Writers writer's market directory this week. And to kick things off I'd like to share a few freelance blogging markets and other online markets that pay freelance writers $100 or more per article.

But first, the updates:

Changes to the Writer's Market Directory

Keep an eye on the writer's markets here over the next week or so and you'll find:

  1. More online markets, including blogs (starting with the ones listed below);
  2. More freelance fiction markets for your short stories and flash fiction;
  3. Several new market categories added;
  4. A public submission form so publication owners and editors can submit their markets for consideration. Currently I hand-pick every market, adding at least five per week. That will continue alongside any submissions accepted.

And remember, every market I publish is a paying market for freelance writers.

Websites and Blogs That Pay $100 or More Per Article

Now to the good stuff. Here are the latest additions to the writer's market directory -- a sampling of what you'll find more of here in the future.

A List Apart (

A List Apart publishes feature-length articles as opposed to shorter blog posts. Articles should have a viewpoint or argument rather than simply offering tips or resources. The audience consists of "designers, developers, content strategists, [and] information architects." Articles should be around 1500 - 2000 words.


A List Apart pays $200 per article.


FlashMint (

FlashMint hires Flash developers to write tutorials for their website. These should be laid out in numbered steps and include appropriate screenshots.


FlashMint pays $150 per tutorial.


IncomeDiary (

IncomeDiary accepts articles from experts in the following topic areas:

  • Website creation / development / blog design
  • Driving traffic to websites
  • SEO
  • Social media
  • Content creation
  • Affiliate marketing
  • Making money online
  • Buying and selling websites

Articles should be a minimum of 1000 words.


While payments start at $50, the site pays up to $200 per article. You propose your payment requirements and anticipated word count when you send your pitch.

PostJoint (

PostJoint covers topics such as "digital marketing, content, blogging, SEO, copywriting, social media, and making a living online." Paid contributors may not include a commercial link, but they must include a link to at least one social media account to show they're a real person.


PostJoint pays $100-200 per post.


TutorialBoard (

TutorialBoard accepts contributions that showcase tutorials for Adobe Photoshop, Adobe After Effects, Autodesk Maya, and related software. These must include a sample .psd file for readers to download.


TutorialBoard pays up to $150 per accepted tutorial.



WPMU DEV publishes WordPress tutorials, resource lists, and opinion pieces. Contributions should be at least 1500 words.


  • "$200 for a great tutorial"
  • "$300 for a really premium piece"
  • "$500 for a truly epic post"

See their guidelines for links to example posts that fall within each pay level.


The writer's market submission form is now live. Submit your own, or your favorite, writer's markets. But remember, those markets must pay and they must publicly publish their writers' guidelines on their website. No exceptions.

      Your welcome Anda. Just remember that these aren’t the only places that pay these rates. Many clients pay $100 (and much more) but don’t have public writers’ guidelines online which was a requirement for this list. So keep looking, even beyond these. 🙂
