Instead of writing for free to build your writing portfolio, a better way to do it is to pitch website owners who pay for guest post/article submissions. There are three benefits you could earn from doing this: build your writing portfolio, earn money and increase traffic to your site. Though some of the sites I would present here won't be providing any link to your bio.
Previously, I have written a part 1 of this article. Read through here. Now, I'll be sharing with you another list.
Ministry Today - A website mag about God, church and goodness. Even the best selling author of the Purpose Driven Life, Rick Warren is writing here. Payment is negotiable.
College Humor - An entertainment website geared to 18-49 year old audience. Submit anything funny. If the staff accepts it, you'll be rewarded $25 and additional bonuses for high page views.
Viator - A comprehensive resource website for travelers. Pays $40-$45 for short posts, and $100-$150 for standard travel blog posts.
Family Magazines of Michiana - A website that owns several mags mostly about Michiana families. Payment is negotiable.
High Ground News - A weekly digital magazine and website focused on what's next for the city of Memphis. Payment is negotiable.
Greater Good - A website mag about psychology, sociology and neuroscience of well-being. Pays $.25/word for feature articles, $75 for a book review or research briefs, and $350 for interview articles.
