    Hi there

    I have attempted to compile a list of the sites found that provide leads towards paid content creation online. I hope this proves to be useful to those beginning to market their linguistic talent. I have attempted to list only those through which I have found paid work.

    I will continue to update this list as time is fitting and as I discover new places through which to source writing online.

    The websites listed below are ordered according to no particular preference.


    Wahm . com

    This site covers work at home opportunities extensively. Exploring the Freelance Writing and Blogging sections can reveal many opportunities. If one is lucky enough to catch one of the larger content writers at a period where they have an overflow of work then a steady stream of writing at reasonable rates is often provided.


    Odesk . com

    Odesk is one of the better known freelancing sites. I would advise to complete your profile and make sure that it is appealing. The amount of competition here often has a buyer swamped with options; you need to stand out from the crowd! I always make certain that my buyer has a payment history, although many smaller offerings are often missed by doing so.


    Journalismjobs . com

    This site has an almost constant supply of new leads hidden beneath the freelancing category. Many of the positions listed require rather specialised talent and thus have much higher compensation than a run-of-the-mill SEO article. All forms of opportunities are however listed, it would be best to keep an eye on this site at all times when scouring for work.


    Virtualvocations . com

    Virtual vocations cover telecommuting in its entirety. Job opportunities are posted frequently and mostly cater to applicants from any country. This is another great source of work for those specializing in a given field.


    Worldwidefreelance.com

    Signups seem to be universally annoying, yet this signup is well worth the effort! With the addition of a newsletter, you will gain access to their listing of leads. This site has many users and the free service can provide you with more than enough job possibilities.


    Sunoasis.com

    The importance of classified sites to freelancers is well known but many are lazy. For those that do not feel like sifting through Craigslist, Gumtree and the like visit this site. Updated daily, Sun Oasis posts leads from many popular publications.


    Fiverr.com

    The infamous Fiverr.com. It is a fantastic source of work, with the added hindrance of delayed pay-outs. Do not allow your rating to suffer or your account will be useless. Perseverance is the key on Fiverr as maintaining a high standard will unlock higher tiers of ?Seller Rating? allowing features ranging from daily payments to listings higher than $5.


    Jobs . problogger . net

    Problogger has been around for a long time and its jobs section certainly reflects this. There are many leads posted here covering all forms of writing, specialized or not. The only downfall to this resource is that there appears to be a large amount of competition for the listings. Tactful sales copy and a personal interaction with your clients will be instrumental in success here.

    I write for textbroker and hirewriters. I think textbroker pays the best.

    Good post. You could also try out SEOclerks, or see about writing for Epinions as well. I used to do a few reviews for them but have not been on their site for a while.

    Epinions used to offer many months $1 per review. They were easy to write but I think now they do a share program where you possibly get so much for your views.
