Amanda works at home as a freelance writer and digital marketer. She's always on the prowl for new money-making ideas.

Earn $100 or More for Your Articles

Writing takes time, research, patience, and editing. Lots of editing. We write not because it pays great, but because we love what we do. Of course, pocketing money for our skill is nice, especially when it’s 100 bucks or more for your words.

Tons of sites pay writers for their articles, but few pay $100 or more per article. The sites on this list are the exception. Although every article you write will not be accepted at the following sites, it is worth giving it a shot. Good writing skills and persistence can certainly increase the odds of acceptance.

Good luck!

Great information and deserve to be checked out. I wonder if they can match Hub pages that do not discriminate against third world writers

Peggy Woods from Houston, Texas on March 12, 2021:

Thanks for assembling this information. While HubPages does not pay that much per article, one can continue to earn residual money if the subjects are evergreen. So that is one benefit of writing on this site.

Amanda Grace (author) from Colorado Springs, CO on March 12, 2021:

Right! Lol. And the sites here are pretty picky about what they accept, so it is nice to come here to write what we like and interact without worry!

Pamela Oglesby from Sunny Florida on March 12, 2021:

I really don't write for the money or I would not be on HubPages. LOL Regardless, I really appreciate your article and I may check out some of these sites. Thank you for sharing them, Amanda.

Amanda Grace (author) from Colorado Springs, CO on March 12, 2021:

I also love writing here, Pamela. it's fun and a great community!!

Pamela Oglesby from Sunny Florida on March 12, 2021:

I had no idea that there were so many websites that paid so well. No one writes on HubPages for the money, at least I don't think they do as the pay is so low. I have written for other sites, but I like the people on HubPages and the flexibility of writing when you are in the mood. Thanks so much for this information, Amanda.
