Would you like to get paid to blog about your parenting experiences and skills?
Do you have travel experiences or technical skills to share in your spare moments without the kids?
Would you like to keep in touch with your area of expertise by writing business articles or tutorials on computer and web applications?
[UPDATE: You can read the basic ideas about her ultimate list below and then go get her most updated list here.]
There are opportunities to blog about all of these and more in the Ultimate List of Better-Paid Blog Gigs 2013 compiled by Sophie Lizard. In this free list she provides 57 blogs that pay $50 or more per blog.
In her own words, “The one thing you desperately need as a freelance blogger is a client who pays a fair rate.” And in my own words, “The first thing you need as a freelance blogger is a client.” Sophie provides both in this list.
What is in this list?
Sophie starts off introducing herself and giving basic advice and related reading for freelancers or attempting freelancers. She clearly describes how she has presented her listings and what each section means.
The list includes various blogs related to:
- Art, design & photography
- Audio & multimedia
- Entertainment & humour
- Parenting & family
- Sport & leisure
- Web development and the list goes on
How do you get this list?
In order to get the list you do have to provide your e-mail address… What are you thinking?… Does she really want me to give my e-mail address so that I can get more spam in my inbox? That was my own first fear, I have to admit!
But if you do sign up, besides the list and you will also get follow up e-mails in which Sophie connects you to much useful information including:
- Free access to the BAFB community (Be A Freelance Blogger forum)
- A guide discussing how to decide on blogging rates
- Access to a video library in which a number of successful bloggers share their experiences and give tips
- Lists of useful free resources for freelance bloggers
- Blogs on how to blog
She is also ready to answer questions from fellow and aspiring bloggers. A great plus!
And on top of all that, Sophie updates the list once a year and sends it to everyone on her e-mail list. So, it is up to you – are you ready to become a freelance blogger in your spare time? Do you enjoy sharing your thoughts and ideas? Do you want to develop skills and methods which you can later expand into a full time income once the children are older?
If so, then click here to join Sophie and other successful freelance bloggers.
By the way, in case it wasn't clear, the list and all the information mentioned above is FREE. And if you make use of all these and other free materials she has to offer, she also offers various courses to take your blogging to the next level.
If you have had any experiences with any of these blogs or know of others that we would all benefit from knowing about, please leave a comment below.
