Writing can be fun, a well-paying job just like any other job, or to some, it is a hobby, but, all these depend on how the art of writing makes sense to you as a person, and why you write. If you write for money, then make sure you know who needs to read what you write, and give you readers what they want to read, and you will get paid for it.
It also depends on readers of the content you write. Is what you are writing on demand? Do your audiences appreciate when you post your writing on a platform? My advice to writers is to start a blog, and start making posts, and start making money, as you look for publishers for extra pay. In Kenya for example, we have many writers but few publishers, and so write for the world.
I have listed below 11 websites, online magazines and blogs that, first pay writers for their work, and secondly give a treasure of knowledge and skills about writing for money, to writers, and lastly, they are publishers, for different genre for a pay. Go through one by one, you won’t regret reading this post. Good luck.
