Get Paid To Write Articles by Checking These 5 Job Boards Daily

As anyone who has searched for a job online knows, job boards are websites that display job listings by employers, who are seeking out the right employees.

Generally, people will randomly search almost any job board and hope to stumble across the right role.

However there is a better way, as a freelance writer, to find and get paid to write articles. Rather than searching any old job listing website, you need to narrow down your search to the key job boards that are renowned for consistently providing checked listings.

The five job boards I have listed below, regularly update with freelance writing work, from technical writing gigs to blog posts.

I recommend that you check each of them once a day, to see if they may have posted a freelance job that is right for you:

    Nice list, Katherine! I hadn’t heard of a couple of these. One thing I do like to do is subscribe by email or RSS so I can check all their updates in one place.

    Thanks Katherine! I’m still trying to get the new All Indie Writers board off the ground, so I appreciate you spreading the word. :)

    And thanks for the reminder Keri. I set up a feed and mentioned it in a post, but I haven’t added the link to the board itself yet. I’ll make sure I do that today. :)

    Excellent post. I hadn’t heard of a couple of these either, but I’ll check them out. I’d also add Freelance Writers Den to the list. It costs $25/month and you get additional resources that are quite valuable, especially if you are building your freelance business. It’s the best investment I’ve made all year.

      Freelance Writers Den is a great website (I believe they are a part of the ‘Make A Living Writing’ blog).

      Thanks for that info Allen! :)
