My Favorite Writing Sites

If you want to write online, there are many different websites you can sign up on. Which one you choose to sign up on depends on what your goals are you for your writing — do you want to make money from it right away, or are you more interested in growing an audience? This post will discuss a few of my favorite writing sites


If you’re just getting started writing online and want to make money right away without having to market your writing on social media or through email, this is a great place to start. Pay depends on what you’re writing — a standard blog article ghostwriting project pays $4.50. There are also other types of projects that have different rates, though. You can find out more about Wordgigs by checking out their website.


I ranked Medium second for a reason — I haven’t earned much money with it yet, and I’m not actually using it to make money directly from my articles, but it runs a close second to Wordgigs because it’s so versatile. I’ve learned a lot about just how versatile it is in the past three weeks or so that I’ve been trying to work on posting an article a day. I can write anything I want on Medium — if you’ve been following me for a while you know that I’ve posted everything from book reviews, to how-to type articles, to more reflective pieces, and even some feeble attempts at poetry. There are other things I can do with Medium though that I have yet to try, but hope to in the near future — hopefully after my husband and I get moved into our new house. And I can share it on social media sites BEFORE I publish it so it can get some feedback.


If you want to write about a certain topic, Blogger is one the best platforms I’ve found to start building an audience before you decide if you want to build a self-hosted website. If you do decide to build a self-hosted website you can always import your Blogger posts to your website so you have some content on it already. You can make money from your Blogger posts a few different ways — once you’ve been a member on Blogger for six months, you can sign up for Google Adsense and you’ll start making money when people click on the ads that show up in your posts. Also, if you have memberships on different affiliate websites, such as Amazon Associates or Clickbank, you can put links in your blog posts to different items on those sites. If you’re interested in starting a blog on Blogger, check out their website.

These are my top three favorite sites — if you have any others that you like to write on, I’d love to hear about them — please feel free to comment below. And if you enjoyed this article, please recommend by clicking the heart.

I started writing in elementary school and never stopped. I enjoy sharing stories about my hard-learned life lessons and writing advice.
