What are the ways that you find writing sites?

A. E. RutherfordParticipant
Honestly, I Google search. However my textbook for my Screenwriting Fundamentals class suggested the following organizations and contests:
The Writer’s Guild of America, East or West.
Final Draft’s Big Break Contest.
Script Shark’s Annual Screenwriting Competition.
Diane Thomas Award.

Same as A.E. I Google mostly. But I have a few trusted sites that I mainly work for so I don’t look around too much. I just happened across blogjob and loved the concept.

I actually research as much as possible. On top of that, I also ordered a book which the author will email the updates for FREE by purchasing it. You have to show proof though. Amazon have her book. It lists some sites that pay writers.
On top of that, I also use free online resources to find sites and companies that do hire telecommuters/freelancers. I am, as of now, printing out a free ebook of places that we can make money working at home. I can’t wait to see all of it. 🙂

LinkedIn is also a good source. Recently I got freelance writing job through LinkedIn. Then we have craigslist. I also got some writing offers through my blog.

I do agree that LinkedIn is one of the resources of finding writing jobs. I had a few contacting me about it. Unfortunately, I didn’t get any. Since I also do promotions which involve working outside of the house, I occasionally get them. I prefer online work than promotions because I get to work whenever and wherever I want. If I want to work right now, which I am, I may do so.
I also contact directly by email to places that I’m interested in applying for. I recently signed up for one through Craigslist. I need to find the papers so I could see the guidelines. This particular one pays really good at $700 total for $35 each. That’s one of the agencies though. Another one replied back to me yesterday and I need to finish that one as well.
If you do a lot of Google searches, you’ll get some more. It may take some time but you’ll get something. Don’t give up is how people succeed.

Thank you all for the links. I enjoy writing articles on multiple subjects including addictions, self-help, home improvement, parenting, and much more.

wow, that is a lot of knowledge at one place
June 24, 2014 at 10:22 pm #5636
@xunzsam- Thanks a lot for the info. Could never have found them on my own!

That list is helpful. I get most of my writing jobs through LinkedIn groups.

I signed up on skyword.com its a middle man site that matches you based on your writing experience and sample articles to companies looking for writers, you “audition” by submitting a sample article based on a topic provided by the company and if they like you they’ll let you know. Some companies only pay $5 an article but others like Angie’s List will pay $60 per article. For us fashion and makeup writers though it can be hard to get anything right now through skyword because most of the companies currently looking want business and financial writers.

I typically use google. I’m now mainly writing for this site and bubblews.

When I first started out, I would google different things. Now, I tend to stick to forums and such. Not only will you find some new sites, but you get reviews and help from people who have already written for that site.
September 5, 2014 at 6:15 pm #10849
I mainly use here, bubblews and personapaper. All the highest paying writing sites that are easy to get approved for.
September 12, 2014 at 9:57 am #11517
I write for BlogMutt which pays $8 per article and private clients when I find them. I am also on a few writing sites like Bubblews, DailyTwoCents, Writedge and now this one. 🙂

I need to find additional writing sites. I wish that there was ones that would pay you for quality blog posts on subjects that you could choose.
September 17, 2014 at 4:32 pm #12001
Do any of you make money from your blogs
September 17, 2014 at 5:29 pm #12010
I find writing sites by searching online. I also hear about them on other sites I use on the web.
May 26, 2015 at 3:10 pm #22668
I wish that there was more. Bubblews seems to be a dude. I love this site but there are limits. Personapaper isn’t too bad but the pay is rather low.
June 1, 2015 at 10:49 am #23031
Through friends most of the time

I love triond, I have made 44$ within a month.
You write an article than advertise it as much as you can.
June 28, 2015 at 9:36 am #24430
Listverse is so hard to get your list approved. I use Craigslist and forums mostly to find clients.
July 26, 2015 at 3:55 am #25563
Oh I am inspired to read the site where you are earning good with your article. I am not that good writer. I only write my thoughts, just like I do in Bubblews. I will also use Linkedln from now on.
