Websites That Pay You To Write Technical Articles


Getting paid to write technical articles is a great way to supplement your income. Especially if you already write articles for your blog. However, the first question that arises is "how can I get opportunities?", which was my question too.

As a result, I want to list a handful of websites that pay you to write technical articles for them. You can see their name, the URL, and the approximate sum they pay you.

Sources

Be aware; I did not come with this list of publications. I put together (most of) the publications from Paid Community Writer Programs, and Who Pays Technical Writers together. Also, in the article you can see some of the most popular publications. For a more comprehensive list, with more publications, visit the above links.

Therefore, I hope it helps you to create an additional income. Also, keep an eye on these two sources in case they add more publications.

Would be interesting to hear from someone with experience, what are pros and cons about the different sites.

I assume while it's tempting to pick those who pay most, it's easier to start earning from those who pay least.

Thanks for the tips Catalin Pit!

How do these typically work, do you still own the content, or are they paying for sole ownership of the content?
