Get Paid to Blog for Quips and Tips


If you want to get paid for blogging, I have a job for you. I’ve been blogging since 2008, and created seven “Quips and Tips” blogs. I can’t write for them all – I can barely keep up with the comments from readers. Help!

Get Paid to Blog for Quips and Tips

I want to pay bloggers to write articles that show readers they’re not alone. What is a problem you’ve faced, and how did you solve it? Write an article that contains five tips that describe how you coped with something in your life, such as……….

  • Health issues
  • Household snafus
  • Work or career issues
  • Financial challenges
  • Relationship breakdowns
  • Travel problems
  • Parenting conundrums
  • Family difficulties
  • Holiday hassles

My most popular posts are those that show readers they’re not alone. For example, in Should You Give Your Dog Away? 5 Things to Consider I describe one of the most painful problems I’ve faced and how I coped with it. It shows readers they’re not alone.





How Much Will You Get Paid to Blog?

The first thing you need to know is how much you’ll get paid per blog post. I can only afford to pay bloggers $15 per article. I think you can write an article in an hour, which means you’ll get paid $15 per hour. This blogging job won’t make you rich, but you’ll get writing experience, links to your blog, and exposure.

After you’ve written 10 articles, I will pay you $20 per article.

About Quips and Tips

My blogs have paid me since I started in 2008, but my income has dipped because I lost focus. I tend to keep creating blogs instead of concentrating on one or two, and I get bored easily. Plus, I went back to school a couple years ago and let my blogs wither on the vine. I need to rebuild, and I can’t do it alone.

I have hired bloggers for Quips and Tips in the past (three years ago), but I had no idea what I was getting myself into! I didn’t realize how much editing and administrative work was involved in hiring and paying bloggers. Back then I wrote about why I stopped hiring bloggers – which is fortunate. I’ve found solutions to my previous problems with paying bloggers to write for me.

4 Steps to Writing for Quips and Tips

If you have any questions about blogging for me, please ask in the comments section below.

1. Introduce yourself in the comments section below

Tell me your name and the problem you want to write about. I will email you a confirmation.

Alternatively – below is a list of articles I’m planning to write for my blogs. If you want to write one of them, let me know. I’m not as interested in paying bloggers to write the articles below — I’d much rather hear how you coped with a specific problem in your life. You don’t need to “apply” before getting paid to blog for Quips and Tips, but I would like to know which article you’re interested in writing. Comment below, and let me know what you’re working on. If somebody has already written it, I’ll email you. I intend to regularly update this list, so bloggers won’t be working on the same articles. However, since I have so many blogs I may publish more than one article on the same topic.

2. Review my guidelines for bloggers

Here are my blogging guidelines:

  • Your article must be at least 750 words of original content that has not been published online
  • Your article must include at least five subtitles, steps, or tips in bold
  • If you include information from books, websites, or other resources, you must share your original source

I may choose not to publish or pay for your article if I don’t think it fits my blogs – which means you’re writing “on spec.” I won’t publish articles that are poorly written or unhelpful to readers. I won’t publish an article that contains information and tips that we see all the time (eg, “a tip for good blogging is to avoid passive sentences”). In my list of blogs and articles “assignments” below, I list several blog posts I’ve written – I think they are good examples of the type of blog posts I’m happy to pay you for.

3. Email me your article – along with your bio and links

Please include a short bio and your headshot at the end of your article. I will give you full credit for the article, of course! Before I post your article on Quips and Tips, I will add an introduction from me and probably include related books and products to help readers get more information. I will also add an image.

I will send you the link when the article is published – and I’ll post it on my Pinterest, Facebook, Twitter, GooglePlus, and LinkedIn pages. I hope you share your article with your friends and followers – but please do not copy and paste the full published article onto your own blog or website. If you want, you can upload a “teaser” (about 250 words) onto your blog and link back to the full article on Quips and Tips.

4. Email me your invoice

I need your invoices for tax purposes. Email me your invoice by the 2nd day of the month after your article is published. For example, if I publish your article on November 15, you need to send me your invoice by December 2. I will pay you via PayPal by the 5th of that month). If you’re new to invoicing, read How to Create a Writer’s Invoice.

My Quips and Tips Blogs – and Available Topics

I will keep updating the available topics and assignments, so keep checking back.

If you have an idea for a tips-based article on any topic, please tell me in the comments below! I welcome creativity and inspiration – but I only publish articles that help readers solve specific problems. For instance, I won’t pay for a “How to Lose Weight” blog post, but I would definitely consider “How to Lose Weight After Quitting Smoking.”

1. Zzz Sleep Blog – Get Paid to Blog About Sleep

On ZZZ Sleep Blog (even though it’s not called “Quips and Tips”, I consider it part of the quips and tips family), I offer solutions for a variety of sleep problems.

    Sorry, Rodney, but I’ve stopped paying people to blog for my Quips and Tips blogs. Your ideas sound great and I’m sure you’re an awesome writer, but I created SheBlossoms and am putting all my energy there. A whole new direction!

    http://www.theadventurouswriter.com/she/

    May you find writing and blogging jobs that help you grow and make money as writers.

    All good things,

    Sorry, fellow scribes, but I’ve stopped paying people to blog for Quips and Tips. Your ideas sound great and I’m sure you’re awesome writers, but I’ve moved towards Putting Parables Into Practice on my blogs. A whole new direction!

    May you find writing and blogging jobs that help you grow and make money as writers.

    Blessings,

  • Roger Ferreira

    Hi Laurie,

    Would the following topics fit with your “successful writers” blog?

    How to write a will
    How to write a resume/CV
    How to write a covering letter
    How to write a eulogy
    How to write for your first public speaking assignment

  • Janice

    Hi Laurie,

    I might be a few months too late but I’m wondering if you are still looking for any potential writers for your Quips and Tips articles?

    Thank you!

    Janice

  • Tracey R Cobb

    Hi Laurie, I would be interested in writing articles for your blog on love and relationships. I am currently working through a relationship ending and have many ideas about thing I would like to explore and write about. The first being recognizing our own value in relationships and how that affects who and how we love

  • Laurie Post author

    Hi Peggy, thank you, I’ve emailed you directly. Please do go ahead with 10 Writing Careers. I look forward to reading it 🙂

    I really appreciate your acupuncture and fertility suggestion, but I’ve already written a couple articles on that topic, so will have to pass.

    All good things,
    Laurie

  • Peggy Williams

    Hi Laurie,

    I’d be happy to tackle a couple of articles for you. The one I feel most comfortable starting with is: 10 Writing Careers. I have my own blog “Musings of a MadCityWriter” that I’ve neglected recently. This might help me get back into my own rhythm for writing and posting.

    Also, my acupuncturist specializes in fertility support, so I might be willing to work up something on How Acupuncture Can Help WIth Fertility if I can corall her for an interview.

  • Laurie Post author

    Hello Janet,

    It’s great to hear from you – thank you for your interest in blogging for me! I emailed you directly — yes, please do go ahead with What to Do With Leftover Turkey. I look forward to reading it 🙂

    Sincerely,
    Laurie

  • Janet

    Hi Laurie

    I’m brand new to blogging and would be really interested in tackling some of your articles.You have lots of good topics to choose from. May I try “What To Do With Leftover Turkey” for your Bounce Back Babe blog?

    Thanks.
    Janet

  • Laurie Post author

    Thank you for your interest, Elisabeth! I emailed you directly.

    A few seconds ago, I posted Writing Strategies for Beginners
    http://theadventurouswriter.com/blogwriting/writing-strategies-for-beginners/
    .
    Another writer is working on Gifts for Chemo Patients, but I may want to have a couple of different articles on that topic. Let’s wait until that one is posted, then perhaps you can fill in the gaps with your own article?

    Right now, would you like to tackle either 10 Tips for Finding a Pet Sitter or How to Sleep With a Snorer? It’s best to write one at a time, to make sure we fit. After you’ve written two or three, then we can go faster 🙂

    Sincerely,
    Laurie

  • Elisabeth Daniels

    Hi, Laurie.

    I’d love to write for you! Here are the articles I’d like to write if they’re not already taken:

    • Writing Strategies for Beginners
    • How to Sleep With a Snorer
    • 10 Tips for Finding a Pet Sitter
    • Gifts for Chemo Patients

    Thanks for considering me!

    Hello Linda ~ It’s great to hear from you – thank you for your interest in writing articles for me! I have emailed you directly. Yes, please do take the first three that caught your eye. I encourage you to write one at a time, though, just to make sure we’re on the same page. I’d hate for you to spend time writing all three, and us realize it’s not quite the right fit. Once we get the first two or three under our belt, you can tackle as many as you want 🙂

    Hello Rick ~ Feel free to return next month, when you have more time to blog. In the meantime, best of like with your writing project!

    Sincerely,
    Laurie

  • LKlonsky

    Hi Laurie! I’m Linda Klonsky and I’ve been blogging for at least 11 years now (Wow! Time flies!). My blog, “Is It Hot In Here?” Menopause, Motherhood & More focuses on lifestyle tips/hacks. – So MANY of your potential posts look appealing! May I have: How Depression Affects Your Sleep, Gifts for Chemo Patients, and 5 Healthy Sleep Habits of a Happy Child to start? Thanks!

  • Rick

    I am interested in writing for you – and of course want to get paid to blog! – but I’m buried with another writing project right now. Can I contact you next month, and get a blog assignment then?

  • Laurie Post author

    Hi Nathana,

    Great question about the invoice! I emailed you a link to how to make a writer’s invoice, and I included the link here, too.

    Looking forward to reading your article – “When Are You Most Fertile.” Thank you!

    Laurie

  • Nathana

    Hello Laurie,
    I am Nathana Clay. I am relatively new to blogging, but I love it! My blog The Engaged Home focuses on faith and learning in the home. I have always enjoyed writing. I wrote for our college paper, and I currently write articles for crowdsource through Amazon. I graduated college with an English major and Secondary Education major.

    I would be very interested in writing articles for you! I am interested in starting with “When are you most fertile?” since I researched that before we became pregnant (what I learned worked). I also have a couple ideas I may send your way for your love and relationship blog.

    My only other question was on how to create an invoice, but I can do some research. Thanks for the opportunity!

  • Melody Wiseman

    Hi Laurie,

    I would like to discuss writing for you! I have experience with infertility and would like to write about ways to improve female fertility.

    Will you email me? Thank you!
