Over 30 Reliable Blogs That Pay $50+ For Your Guest Posts

Writing

UPDATE: Please go here for an updated list of websites that pays up to $300 (or more) for your guest posts.

Are you a freelance writer who’s tired of websites offering $1 for 100 words or $10 for 1,000 words? Well, there’s good new for you. I have a list of some good quality blogs and websites that pay you to contribute content.

I have already featured around 10 websites that pay you to write articles. But the problem is... they're either networks or big publishers so their acceptance rate is low and a good percentage of them accept only U.S./U.K. writers. That’s not all, you’ve to be an established writer to get into their network. And then I recently featured over 90 random websites to make money online for anyone and everyone.

Now today I’m going to focus on specific blogs or websites that pay you to blog. This time I’m going to exclude networks so you can contribute your content directly and get paid. In other words, these blogs will pay you for contributing guest posts and may even hire you as one of their in-house writer.

You do have to offer extremely high quality content to match their publishing standard but you don’t have to be an established writer. Some websites may give preference to writers who have an active social media presence.

13 Hotmail (Now Outlook) Tips & Tricks You Probably Don’t Know

Hotmail Logos: New & Old

Hotmail is your e-mail friend, right? And by now you probably know that Microsoft has rebranded Hotmail as Outlook.com (see the official blogpost here) in an effort to compete with Google Mail (Gmail). Hotmail was one of the first web-based email services and is still world's largest e-mail service with over 350 million users, according to comScore (June 2012). “Hot..”, err, “Outlook” is better than you think and is perhaps the only Internet brand that has redefined itself several times.

The Brand “Hotmail”

  • Hotmail (1996 – 1998)
  • MSN Hotmail (1998 – 2006)
  • Windows Live Hotmail (2007 – 2011)
  • Microsoft Hotmail (2011 – 2012)
  • Outlook [or Microsoft account?] (2012 – ?)

Over the past several years, Microsoft supported e-mail addresses on the following top level domains – @msn.com, @hotmail.com, @live.com, and now @outlook.com. I love everything Microsoft (maybe because I’m a Microsoft fanatic) and I love the brand @hotmail.com. But since I’m a power Internet user, Gmail is my primary e-mail account as it acts as my e-mail hub so I’m not going to switch to Outlook.com anytime soon (but I want to).

Google Penguin Update (or Over Optimization Penalty) targeted websites that engaged in webspam tactics (Black Hat SEO) to manipulate search engine rankings.
