List of 5 Blogs That Pay For Guest Posts


I often mention various websites that pay you to write. These have mostly been content sites/mills that have regular assignments available that you can grab and work on at your leisure.

Most of those sites don’t pay all that well, although they are good to have access to for when you need money in a pinch.

Today, I thought it might be fun to make a list of blogs that pay you for guest posts! As you know, most sites do not pay you for guest posting.

Your reward is usually considered the byline at the end where you can promote your own site or services.

But there are some sites that not only pay for guest posts, they pay pretty well for guest posts.

Even though guest posts are usually either one-time or very occasional writing opps, they are great for getting your name out there and boosting the rank of your blog or website if you have one.

Also, there’s no guarantee that the following sites will accept your submissions. If they don’t, try not to get discouraged — you can always submit your work someplace else. Some of the sites below will allow you to have a byline and some won’t.

5 Reputable Sites That Pay You For Guest Posting

  • Elite Personal Finance – Claims to pay between $30 and $100 for personal finance articles.
  • Listverse – This site pays $100 for great lists. I have actually reviewed them here.
  • Read. Learn. Write – Pays $50 a post for personal experiences with reading, learning, and writing.
  • Longreads – Pays $500 for high-quality, personal essays across a wide range of topics.
  • Income Diary – Will pay as much as $200 for worthy, well-written articles about entrepreneurship, making money, blogging, SEO, and other related topics.

Tips For Getting Your Submissions Accepted

It goes without saying, but these websites are trying to pay writers a fair rate, so they are looking for high-quality and unique content.

Here are some things you should do for the best chance at getting your content accepted so you get paid!

Read the Instructions Carefully

Each of the sites above have their own unique submission requirements. Some of them may be OK with you submitting an article without pitching first. Others may require that you pitch them an idea before they will even look at your content.

You will save yourself time and frustration if you carefully read their submission requirements prior to sending any of your work over.

Research the Website and Try to Send Something New & Fresh

Look at the topics covered on the website you are considering writing for and try to come up with something unique that hasn’t been written about previously, yet still in line with their niche.

Your submission or pitch will be given more consideration if it covers a new topic, or a new angle on an existing topic. These webmasters want to share content their readers will be excited about.

Don’t Let AI Write Your Article For You

Do not use ChatGPT or other AI tools to create your content. It has gotten to the point that most webmasters and bloggers can spot AI content a mile away because there are certain words and phrases AI tends to overuse.

Not to mention that the accuracy of AI information is sometimes lacking.

If you use AI to craft your article, there is a very high chance it will be rejected immediately because people CAN tell!

This isn’t to suggest AI is completely useless. You can let it help you create an outline or structure for your article.

Sometimes AI can even accurately proofread (although I’d still look it over myself prior to trusting and implementing AI’s suggestions). But do not let it write your article for you and expect it to be accepted.

I’d love to keep adding sites to this list!
