If you’ve been blogging for a while now you probably already know there are all kinds of ways to make money blogging or make money as a freelancer. But if you’re like some bloggers and freelance writers, you might not want to be tied down blogging as an affiliate marketer or writing a blog post to promote a brand.
Like those bloggers and freelance writers, you just want to write. After all, that’s what freelancing is all about, right?
Freelance -the freedom to write about what you know and what you love and get paid to do it. There’s no commitment and you call the shots.
Throughout the 7 years I’ve been blogging, I’ve collected tons of notes. I’ve been like Steve (the first Steve, lol) of Blue’s Clue’s – I kept notes of blogging tips and places I found that offered legit paid writing gigs in my handy dandy notebook.
At first I was looking at places like Upwork and other job search websites that required a monthly membership or the purchase of credits. But that was during a time when every penny counted so I had to be smart as to where my money went. And since I was new to writing, I invested in learning. But I digress…

Whether it is freelance writing or blogging, if you have a passion for writing and want to make a living out of it, here is a list of places to find legit paid writing gigs for bloggers and freelancers.

A great quote from a great writer.
But you’ll also get that same advice from authority bloggers and freelance writers who have shared their personal tips to step up your writing skills. Mashable also shared some ways to improve your writing skills and went into detail explaining each bullet.
Here’s a quick breakdown of some of the tips they shared to up your writing game:
And there you have it. Those are the places to find legit paid writing gigs.

And make sure the blogging or freelance writing gig you choose is the right one for you.
