5 Sites To Find Blogging Jobs

1 . Freelance Writing Gigs

Freelance Writing Gigs is a popular site amongst writer types; you can search by type of job i.e., blogging or copywriting. Most of the jobs on the website are remote gigs which can be done from anywhere; however, some do ask for writers in certain countries, for instance, the UK or the USA. Freelance Writing Gigs provides all you need to start applying for some great writing jobs. For those looking to get some blog writing jobs, simply search ‘blogging jobs’ on the site and see what interesting picks come up.

2 . Writers Weekly

Writers Weekly is an excellent resource where you can find plenty of content related to building up your writing career. The site accepts articles about the craft of writing. Having said that, these cannot be common topics about blogging tips, etc. (the site has already produced enough of this kind of content). Writer’s weekly pays writers $40 for a story about ‘freelancing success’ and $60 for feature articles.

  1. Women On Writing

WomenOnWriting is a site dedicated to inspiration and tips for female writers. The site hosts contests and writing programs to help give your writing career a boost. Bloggers who are looking for site exposure can enquire with WOW, and they also accept blog articles to inspire women to write. The site pays approximately $50 for pieces of around 1,000 words.

  1. Problogger

In 2004 Darren Rowse started the Problogger site. He’d just started blogging himself and wanted to connect with like-minded individuals to exchange info about cash from blogs. The site has a job section where you can search for paid blogging gigs with various companies across the world. Companies are usually based in the US or the UK, but you can generally complete the work from anywhere.

  1. Freelancer.com 

The Freelancer.com site is a great place to look for blogging and content-based work. Simply search by the term ‘blogging’ and take a look at what’s on offer. Users will need to bid for the jobs on freelancer.com, but don’t worry; it’s not as scary as it sounds! You simply need to put in your rate and a short section about your skills and experience along with any links. When you don’t have any blogging experience, it’s simple to set yourself up on WordPress and start practicing. There are plenty of blog tips online to get you started off on the right foot.

When you are sprucing up your resume, it’s a good idea to try out many resume templates to create the perfect application. The ideal resume goes a long way, no matter which industry you are applying in.

Learn a new skill at home

With many of us are quarantined at home, this is the best time to teach yourself something new. Learn a skill at home to take your mind off what is going on all over the world. To decide on the skill or skills you want to acquire, ask yourself, what you are really interested in. Here are some amazing ideas for you –

Blogging

You could set up a blog to keep your creative juices flowing and see where the blog takes you. I set up this blog over seven years ago and I am glad I did. I wish I set it up earlier. You can start blogging today if you like. It only takes a few minutes to have your brand new blog up and running. I offer a blog coaching service, and I can coach you on how to make the most of your blog, so you can start earning money from it. You can send an email to fashionandstylepolice@gmail.com to hear more about the blog coaching service I offer.

Vlogging

Setting a YouTube channel is another way to make the most of your free time stuck at home. I have a YouTube channel and it keeps us busy as well. If you have a thing for visual content and you have knowledge to share, vlogging may be your calling.

Baking

We love baking here. We have baked loads of cakes in the last couple of weeks. The next on our baking list is a Banana Loaf! You could get yourself a baking book online and play around with different recipes. It may just be the start of a new hobby or career.

Hairdressing

Many of us have no idea how to really cake for our hair. Some of us struggle to do our own hair. One new skill I am working on is hairdressing. I already make my hair and daughter’s hair in plaits and all, but I also want to really learn how to make cornrows. I will be watching loads of YouTube videos to help me.

Make your beauty products

I do this already and I plan to make even more beauty products at home. At the moment, I make hair oils and hand wash products from home and it gives me joy that I am able to make some of the products I need from home. You could do this as well. Do some research online and find the area that interests you.

Writing

Do you have a flair for writing? You could improve your writing from home and even write a book if you are feeling up to it. The sky is only the beginning.

 

How to become a better blogger

There are blogs all over the web so many bloggers may worry about standing out from the huge pack. Competition is one thing I don’t worry about. Variety is the spice of life and I love that there are so many blogs in different niches to read. I read blog posts written by various bloggers everyday and I love how they each bring something to the table. If you are thinking of how to stand out and become a better blogger, here are some useful tips you may find handy –

 

Bring something to the table

There is no need for a new blog if you have nothing to say. Copying blog posts all over the web and pasting them on your blog won’t get you far. Stealing ideas off other blogs won’t do you any good long term. You need to bring in your own ideas to become a better blogger. Your blog posts have to entertain. inform or educate your readers, or there’s no point in publishing it. Becoming a better blogger means you bring your authenticity to your blog and write in the tone and style that is unique to you. That is one way to stand out from the saturated world of blogging.

Make attention to your headlines

This is one area I have struggled on and off in but I a lot better now with my headlines. Catchy headlines get you more clicks, so it is worth paying attention to them a bit more. It is best to keep the headlines below 7 words to get as many clicks as possible (SEO seems to like those best). Also, you should ensure the headline is related to the blog post and not a clickbait like many blogs do. That is just not right in my eyes.

 

Focus on niches you are interested in

When you write about topics you have interest in, your passion shows and that entices your readers even more. It also means you never run out of ideas. There is no point setting up a pet or beauty blog if you run out of ideas after a month of setting it up. Focus on niches you are interested in to become a better blogger.

 

Add Bullet Points

I always use bullet points in my blog posts. They make it easy for me to write and easier for my readers to scan through my posts. If there’s one tip you implement today, it should be this one. Adding bullet points make your posts a lot easier to read.

Share your posts on social media

Sharing your blog posts on social media can bring you lots of practice. My favourite social media platform for traffic referral is Pinterest. I have been getting loads of referrals from there and I am loving it so much. It is also a lot easier to stay active on compared to other social media platforms. I plan to spend more time generating traffic from Pinterest as that is clearly working great.

 

Post regularly

I post regularly on here and I have done so since day 1. Writing gives me pleasure and the fact that it is now a job makes it even more pleasurable.  I am grateful to be able to earn an income while working from home and it is not something I take for granted at all. Maybe that is why I work my behind off on here.

 

Do you blog? How do you plan on becoming a better blogger? And if you don’t blog, what sort of blogs do you enjoy reading and why?

 

Thanks for stopping by. Have a great one.
