If you’re a blogger, then you should know that submitting guest posts on other blogs boosts your presence on the Google search engine. The good part about that is that it gives your blog more visibility and increases your potential of earning through your blog depending on what you do. It also gives you a level of trust and credibility in the online world. If you’re a freelance writer, before most companies agree to work with you, they want to first see samples of your work done for other companies or bloggers.
To break through real hiring companies, guest posting would be very beneficial. Because of the benefits of guest posting, many bloggers look for other bloggers accepting guest posts to showcase their work. This is usually done for free because both parties benefit from it. The blog receiving the guest post gets extra content, and the guest poster receives more exposure and everything else I mentioned above. But did you know, there are some that are paid guest posts!?
Yes, you read it right! Some website owns and bloggers will pay you to submit guest posts. Because they receive content from guest posters, some would rather just pay people to write for them instead of waiting for people to contact them first. When it comes to money, people are willing to the extra mile to make that extra buck. Even on this blog, if I had the necessary fund to pay people to post regularly on my blog, I would have done so without thinking twice. Now let me quickly share with you some of the places you can make extra cash blogging for others.
1. Money Pantry

If you want to make a living writing, don’t just wait for people to contact you through your blog. Make the effort to look for people paying writers to write for them. Writing is very lucrative, but you have to put in the effort before getting recognized and getting clients. I wish you all the best!
