Blogging is basically writing stories about things that interest you, or make you react in some way. Often because we have a personal blog we may not think about ways that will help us make more money for our blog, and sometimes even increase our reader-audience. I am always researching new and-or exciting ways to make money online and I discovered quite a few companies that drum roll.…..pay bloggers to blog!! I know, right? There are many companies that just want your fresh content. Most times these jobs pay per task like many others, but you may be able to transition that into something more full-time, if you so choose.
How the process works is that you visit a website and sign up to be a blogger/contributor. Once you have signed up you will probably be asked to submit a writing sample, or they may work that into the application process. On some sites you may be able to start posting and earning immediately based on your chosen assignment and how difficult it was to write about. Many of the sites that want you to review their products also help increase your audience by helping you gain the trust as an author. Of course some may be easier than others to earn from and that is to be expected. I wanted to compile a list of the most relevant resources for bloggers to aid them in being successful. I am a blogger too so many of the resources I will be using.
