I have previously written about websites that pay you to blog without sending any pitches. You could write the whole draft of your article, and send it to the website owner for consideration. If your article is accepted, the website owner will pay you the appropriate amount.
This time, I'll be sharing you a list of websites wherein you are required to submit your idea first before you start writing and get accepted for payment.
Be a Freelance Blogger - This blog is owned by Sophie Lizard. From time to time, she holds a pitchfest event that gives you the chance to win $100, plus a link in your author bio. She accepts guest posts about freelance blogging.
American College of Health Care Sciences - ACHS is an online college website that offers holistic health education through comprehensive professional online and on-campus education. ACHS accepts guest blogs about holistic health and wellness. They pay $50 for every accepted post.
Cracked - Cracked is an American humor site where you could read about almost anything. If you are witty with a sense of humor, pitch in Cracked. I just don't know how much they pay.
OnText - OnText is a website about ghostwriting and author mentoring. They accept guest posts about ways on how to empower skilled and dedicated writers. You will receive $40 for every successful post.
Misadventures Mag - Misadventures is a website dedicated to bringing quality outdoor and adventure content about women. You may submit article ideas or an already completed piece about women. I don't know how much they pay for regular submissions, but currently, they are looking for quality feature ideas to be included in their first print issue. And they will handsomely pay $400-$600. Visit this job board.
A List Apart - Accepts pitches that cater to an audience of designers, developers, content strategists, information architects, or similar. Pays $200 for every accepted post.
Income Diary - A blog that provides useful content for web entrepreneurs. You could write anything about how to make money online. Pay is according to what you priced. It's all up to you.
The Frisky - The Frisky is a women’s lifestyle website focused on pop culture, style, news and relationships. Payment is negotiable.
If you know any other websites that pay for guest post submissions, let me know through the comment box and I'll make a new list to share with everybody.
