Make Money Writing and Blogging

I have listed a ton of websites for you to find real writing and blogging work as well as earn money with your own blog. I also recommend affiliate programs as a way to earn extra cash (find out more here).

(List updated as of 8/31/2014)

Type: Sponsored Posts
What You Do: Write posts on your blog - usually up to three or four for each campaign.
What I Think: This is an excellent program. You get paid quickly too. The main downside is that there aren't too many campaigns and they are very particular with who they allow in each program. But if you do get in, it will be worth it!

Freelance Writing Jobs
Type: Permanent, Temporary, Full Time or Part Time Telecommuting or Local Jobs
What You Do: You apply to jobs like a regular job site.
What I Think: This is one of the newer sites I found and there are a few jobs in here that are part time or telecommuting that are worth going for.

Warrior Forum
Type: Writing, Blogging, Reviewer-Based, SEO focused jobs
What You Do: You apply to jobs/requests for hires posted on the job forum.
What I Think: This is one of those sites that really require certain skills. I have found one or two I could apply to, but this hasn't happened often. You can only read through the first page unless you are a member.

Type: Writing, Blogging, Editing, etc. Jobs
What You Do: You are applying for permanent, long term, short term, or contract based positions.  Many of these are found on Craigslist or on the ProBlogger job board. Some are unique positions posted only through the website.
What I Think: Aside from the fact that many are cross posted jobs, I have applied for several opportunities found through this site. The only downside is that some cross posted jobs are pretty dated (a month or two old).

Freelance Writing Gigs
Type: Writing, Blogging, Editing, etc. Jobs
What You Do: You are applying for permanent, long term, short term, or contract positions, most of which are found through ads.
What I Think: I find a lot of real jobs through this site. I think for anyone breaking out into freelance work this is a great place to start. Also, the Craigslist jobs they post are usually telecommuting only and always very recent. Only a few jobs end up being removed from craigslist.
Updated Review 2014: I find recently they don't post as many opportunities and mostly write advice based articles, but it's still worth looking at.

Type: Call for Submissions
What You Do: You are basically following through with various calls for creative submissions - submit your piece, and (hopefully) get published.
What I Think: This site is one of the best in listing magazines and literary anthologies looking for creative submissions - non-fiction, poetry, fiction, short story, flash fiction, etc. are featured here.

Blogging Pro
Type: Writing, Blogging, Editing, etc. Jobs
What You Do: You are applying for ongoing writing, blogging, editing, etc. jobs with this website so there are a wide variety of opportunities to find here.
What I Think: I personally think this is one of the best sites I've seen for opportunities for writers. This site means serious business and if you are trying to make writing your "day job" this is the place to start.
