Write About Money
By Steve Gillman
I love to write about money topics, but I can't always keep
up with the content demands of the dozens of websites my wife
and I have. That's where you come in, if you want to write and
get paid for doing so. I am looking for articles that have something
to do with an interesting or odd way to make money.
I can't pay much, but if you have a story to tell, and it's
one I can use (proper grammar, nothing too obscene, a topic I
haven't yet covered in detail), you can soon call yourself a
paid writer. Hey, it will look good on your resume, and If I
buy another article from you in a year you can say you have been
working as a writer for a year (that's a nifty little resume
trick I picked up when younger).
What am I looking for? I would prefer a personal piece, especially
if you have some experience with one of the topics/jobs listed
below. But if you want to research one of these and put a page
together for me, that's okay too. If you can stick to the basic
format that I use for this page (and most others on the site),
I'll probably pay more. In other words, write it using the section
headings that are green here.
Here are some pages I would love to see (feel free to change
the titles if you have a better one or a different angle):
Working on an Organic Farm
A Freaky Way to Make Money
Working as a Taffy Puller
I Am a Porta-Potty Servicer
How to Be a Weed Farmer
Posing Nude for Art Classes
Selling Christmas Trees
My Pedicab Job
Dog Washing for Fun and Profit
Working in a Hostel
How Much Can You Make?
If I use your article, I can pay $10 to $20. If you can knock
it out in under an hour you might make more than minimum wage,
in other words.
Ways to Make More | Related Opportunities
If I like your style, it is possible I will buy more of your
writing. But in any case, if you really like to write about money--or
anything else--and want to get paid for it, check out all the
pages on how to do that, which you'll find listed here: How
to Write for Money.
Qualifications / Requirements
I need 500 words or more (I don't really worry if they get
too long, but given the pay scale, don't get too carried away).
This page is about 600 words including the headings, which should
give you an idea of what I need. If your article is not about
one of the topics listed above, at least make it one that is
not yet covered on the site. You can check the site
map for a complete listing of pages.
Pick a topic or think back to the most interesting way you
have made some money. Then start writing. Then send your article
to me. You can find the email address on the contact
Interviews with People
Making Money - This is another section on the site, and if
you want to try your hand at interviewing someone making money
in an interesting way, I might buy that too. Just be sure they
know their interview will be online forever.
