Write Blogs - A High-Paying New Market For Freelance Web Writers

(c) Copyright 2007 Angela Booth. All Rights Reserved.

Freelance writers are discovering a massive new writing market: blogs.

Blogs which attract lots of readers need frequent updates, so blogs are word-eating monsters. Writers who write for the most popular blogs generate an amazing amount of material, anywhere from two to ten or more blog posts (short articles, which may consist of anywhere from twenty to several hundred words) each and every day. This means that every blog needs writers, and because blogs are becoming so popular with Web sites, many businesses and publications are actively looking for freelance writers who know how to blog.

Businesses are discovering the major benefits of blogs and hiring writers

In your Web surfing, you may have noticed that not only do news sites have blogs, but many other sites are also jumping onto the blog bandwagon. Blogs are becoming the new "must have" of the Web world.

There's one reason for this: the Web search engines, like Google and Yahoo. The search engines love blogs, visiting them frequently to add blogs to their indexes. This means that a Web site can get an amazing amount of traffic very quickly. Targeted traffic translates to sales and money. As more and more businesses swarm online, and discover blogs, they hire freelance writers to blog for them.

How much can you earn as a freelance blogger?

The pay for freelance blogging gigs varies, as you might expect. At the top end of the market large companies and blog networks pay $1000 (and more) a week, while at the low end of the market small businesses offer around $50 dollars a week.

Your pay, as a professional freelance blogger, depends on the payment that you negotiate for yourself. The pay you can demand depends on: your blogging experience, your writing experience, your ideas, and most of all, on your confidence in your skills.

A word of warning: don't blog for free. There are plenty of paying gigs to go around, so look for them.
