This is another way to earn some extra money. There are a few ways to do this. In the past I used PayPerPost and Blogitive to get paid for blog posts. I didn’t do them on this blog and had a blog that I used primarily for paid posts. The good thing about these programs is that you’re guaranteed to be paid a certain amount for your blog post. The bad thing is that you’re usually writing about something you have no interest in and your readers don’t either. A loss of readers could end up costing you more than you make. These programs do require you to have a blog to participate. I have made over $650 from PayPerPost but I gradually quit using the program last year. Now that the blog I was using has lost its page rank there aren’t any opportunities available to me anymore so I won’t resume using the service.
Another program I use is Associated Content which you can use whether you have a blog or not. They pay you a certain amount for each article you submit and then a little bit more depending on how many page views you have. I haven’t used this service much but I plan to use it more this summer. Since I’ll be working for free during the week I need to find a way to supplement my income. I can submit articles based on my blog posts so it doesn’t have to take much time to write an article.
