Job Board List: Where to Find Freelance Writing Gigs

Odesk and Elance are not the only ways to find clients to boost your freelance writing career. However, expert bloggers/writers advised to avoid freelance bidding sites since most of the employers there only pay peanuts - about a dollar or two for a 500-word article.

If you are tired of using these bidding sites, try these job boards instead:

ProBlogger is one of the biggest blogs in the blogging industry. It has a job board section wherein you could find trusted and paying clients. Big sites such as KISSmetrics, Care2 and LifeHack post job opportunities there.

Writer Town is primarily a revenue sharing website with a job board section. It is a fairly new site but its job board section is "active." Weekly, you could see new job updates.

Blogging Pro is a big website that features articles about the technical side of blogging. It has a frequently updated job board section. Within a day, you could see two or more job posts.

Freelance Writing Jobs is a website that offers free resources for freelance writers. They also provide you with the latest job listings they have gathered from several job board sites like Craigslist. They carefully select on what to include in their job listings and eliminate possible bogus employers.

Freelance writing is another resource site for freelance writers. Be it blogging tips or writing tutorials, you could find them here. It is similar to Freelance Writing Jobs, they handpick freelance writing jobs from popular job sites.

Aside from finding freelance writing work here, you could also find various work-at-home jobs. Genuine Jobs is a great site to go if you don't only want writing gigs.
