Get paid to write online articles

A lot of bloggers make money from Adsense. Unfortunately, as many of you know, it's not very much money.

Some of you may wonder how I make my online money, because most of it does not come from Adsense. I'll share one of these ways today.

One of the most entertaining ways to make money online (taking surveys is such a grind) is to simply write: there are billions of people out there who need a 200-word article per day for their website and are willing to pay for it. Essentially, if you passed high school, then you are more than skilled enough to make money from writing articles on the internet.

As a university student, I have more formal education in writing than many  people. However, writing is something that you can work at to improve your skills. In fact, most advertisers recommend dumbing your writing down to an elementary school level: the customer doesn't want to work hard when he or she is shopping for an item.

The important thing is to write clearly and concisely. Nobody likes to sort through BS to get to the point of the article. Remove your flowery writing and try to avoid long sentences.


There are many legitimate online businesses that organize writers. If you want to go freelance, you can try Fiverr or Elance, but it can be difficult to get jobs if you don't have an established name.

Fortunately, there are some businesses which organize writers like you and me. The best service I've found is called, but they have limited space available. If you can get accepted, then you can make a decent amount of money. And yes, the work can be done at home, in your pajamas! The payouts are generous (anywhere from $25 to $30 per blog post).

Between my two part-time jobs and my full-time university schedule, I don't have very much time to write. Lately, I've managed to set aside one hour each night to write assignments from RealWritingJobs and it's clearly paying off financially.

I spent about 1.5 hours last night preparing an article. 2 cups of coffee later, I managed to squeeze out a well-written and informative article and was paid $52 for it (RealWritingJobs will pay up to $100, but you don't usually make that much).

Another incentive they have is to write a short story and get paid $500 (!) for it, so I've been kicking around some ideas for that.

If the writing gets tedious, just imagine saving up for a vacation
The part I like is that I can pick up assignments whenever I have some spare time.When school ends, and summer begins, I anticipate having a lot more free time to write!

Also keep in mind that I'm Canadian and do this, so they're not picky about where you're from. As long as you have PayPal and the motivation to write, you're good to go.

Always remember that quality is worth more than quantity. The admins will recognize this and you will be justly rewarded. I'll post pictures of my Paypal account in a later post.

There are other services out there that do a similar job, but I really recommend RealWritingJobs, as they won't try to screw you out of money, and I've always been paid on time. Anyways, good luck writing!


EDIT: I just checked the RealWritingJobs website, and they're offering access to their services for $5/month, which is insanely good. It says they've slashed prices down from $90, which isn't what I paid for it (I paid around $45 a few weeks ago but I made it back in a couple nights).

Anyways, definitely go for it if you've got some spare time! Adsense only gets you so far =P

Hi! This is kind of off topic but I need some help from an
established blog. Is it difficult to set up your own blog?

I'm not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty fast. I'm thinking
about creating my own but I'm not sure where to begin. Do you have any points or suggestions? Thanks

I'm really loving the theme/design of your website. Do you ever run into any browser compatibility issues? A handful of my blog visitors have complained about my site not operating correctly in Explorer but looks great in Safari. Do you have any recommendations to help fix this issue?

I've been browsing online greater than three hours today, yet I never discovered any fascinating article like yours. It is beautiful worth enough for me. In my view, if all website owners and bloggers made just right content material as you did, the web will probably be a lot more helpful than ever before.

We absolutely love your blog and find nearly all of your post's to be exactly I'm looking
for. Does one offer guest writers to write content in your
case? I wouldn't mind writing a post or elaborating on most of the subjects you write related to here. Again, awesome website!

Unquestionably believe that which you stated. Your favourite reason appeared
to be at the web the simplest thing to bear in mind of.
I say to you, I certainly get annoyed at the same time as people consider worries that they just
don't realize about. You managed to hit the nail upon the highest and also outlined out the entire thing without having side-effects , folks could take a signal. Will probably be again to get more. Thanks
