The Adventurous Writer Needs You! And She’s Willing to Pay

Let’s face it; adventurous writers can’t do it all alone. So hop on — the “Quips and Tips” train is gaining steam! I need writers to write for my websites, and I’m willing to pay bucks. Not big bucks because I’m just a small writer with a small business…but bucks nevertheless!

This paid blogging job involves writing articles for one (or all) of my four “Quips and Tips” blogs. Topics vary widely, from planning parties to getting pregnant to writing character descriptions to planting square foot gardens.

I pay per blog post in US dollars, via PayPal, on the second or third day of every month. You’re free to write for all four blogs, or just one or two. Your one or two line bio will appear at the end of every article you write, with links back to your blog, website, book, Twitter, Facebook, or wherever you’d like.

You'll be refreshed & encouraged with Laurie's free weekly "Echoing Jesus" email.

As the conductor of this choo choo, I do have a few guidelines…

Want to Write “Quips and Tips” Articles?


  • Online exposure
  • Web writing experience
  • Links to your website or blog
  • Money! I pay per blog post, via PayPal
  • Work as much or as little you want – this is an ongoing gig

If you’re hesitant to write online or start your own blog, this is a great way to learn. It’s also a good source of writing experience!

Your Qualifications:

  • Ability to write grammatically correct, helpful, reader-friendly articles
  • WordPress experience (you’ll upload your post to WordPress)
  • Some familiarity with Search Engine Optimization (SEO)
  • Ability to stick with the “Quips and Tips” guidelines

“Quips and Tips” Blogger Guidelines

Every Quips and Tips article features:

  • At least 4 tips for doing something, accomplishing a goal, or solving a problem.
  • A related book (or sometimes a product) on Amazon, for readers to get more information. (This, I will provide after you write and upload the post. I’m happy to feature your suggested book or product – especially if you wrote the book! – but it needs to be directly related to the topic and uploaded from Amazon by me).
  • A related quip or quotation.

All articles are 400-800 words long.

Types of “Quips and Tips” Blogs and Articles

Each blog has its own niche…

Quips and Tips for Successful Writers is all about writing, editing, getting published — and blogging! Here, I combine quips from famous published writers with practical writing tips. I’ve written about everything from how to grab your reader by the throat to reasons book manuscripts are rejected. I welcome any tips-related topic about writing.

Quips and Tips for Achieving Your Goals covers everything from overcoming career obstacles to saving money with grocery store coupons to beating traffic tickets. Articles range from 5 Fun Workout Routines and Exercises for Love Handles to 10 First Date Conversation Starters. This site helps readers achieve their personal, professional, and financial goals.

Quips and Tips for Money and Love blends two of my favorite topics: love and money. On that site, I weave finances with relationships — all articles contain practical money and love tips for couples. Popular articles include Financial Infidelity – 5 Steps to Fixing the #1 Relationship Wrecker and 10 Reasons Relationships Fail.

And finally, I started Quips and Tips for Couples Coping With Infertility because my husband and I are riding the infertility roller coaster. Infertility is a drag, but it certainly doesn’t have to destroy our dreams or crush our spirits! Articles on that site range from 5 Foods That Increase Sperm Count, Production, and Motility to 8 Natural Ways to Regulate Your Period.

Note that not all articles or titles need to contain the word “tips”!

Articles must be specific, relevant, and contain tips that haven’t been published a gazillion times. Here’s an example of what I don’t want: “Two tips for improving your writing skills are 1) read voraciously; and 2) write every day.” Though true, those tips are too general and overdone. Instead, write an article about improving your writing skills when you’re coping with a chronic illness or have lost the use of your right arm. Be specific.

Another example of a general, overdone topic: “Two tips for losing weight are 1) eat more fruit and veggies; and 2) exercise every day.” No more!!! Instead, write an article about losing weight for diabetics, or losing weight for 99 year olds.

Also — I’ve been hiring bloggers for Quips and Tips From the Working World since December, and it’s been a fabulous ride! That blogging job requires less writing and more editing, and is fascinating. Read Want a Blogging Job? Quips and Tips is Hiring Bloggers for info.

    Hi Laurie

    It is a shame that you’ve stopped looking for freelance writers and bloggers. I am actually looking for them myself to blog on my site. Can I ask why you stopped hiring? I’d be grateful for the tips.

  • Georgina

    Hello Laurie

    I just read this post and I would love to give blogging a try. I’m a postgraduate student, and plan to make a career of writing. This opportunity would be great for me!

    Hope to hear from you soon!


  • Annette Perez

    I would love the opportunity to write and get paid for it. Although I am young, I have been writing for 10 years and continuously to get better.

    I always feel people can also learn from someone young, and I do have experience in a lot of situations.

  • Laurie Pawlik-Kienlen

    Hi Laurie. Just found you via Blogher. I’d definitely be interested in hearing more about your paid posts. Mainly word count and payment per post. Also do writers have to source their own images for posts?

    Hi Laurie,
    I recently chanced upon your blog and have so far read many of your posts.
    Interestingly, you have really ‘encouraged’ me to get back to blogging much sooner than I initially intended, even as I re-purpose my site and blogs…
    Keep up the good work, you have my best wishes in your writing.
    About writing for your Quips and Tips blogs, I’ll Email you in a jiffy. Thanks
