16 Smoking Hot, Really Good Freelance Writing Job Leads

Every time I go on the hunt for job listings to post here, I have to say, I’m simply amazed at how much work there is out there. A couple of things stood out to me as I put together this list: (i) the number of companies looking for full-time writers to work offsite – and they offer full compensation packages (eg, vacation, dental, medical, etc); and (ii) how salaries for freelancers are continuing to rise.

I remember back when $3 to $5 for 500 words was common. I ran across a couple of listings today offering $10 for 100 words (400-word minimum). But, I didn’t even list those because there were so many others that paid so much better.

Yeah, there are still some cheapskates out there trying to get away with paying these wages, but thankfully, they are going the way of keyword-stuffed articles, ie, straight to the bottom of the heap. Yes, online (SEO) writing has finally matured. Hallelujah!

So, get your professional profile/resume ready, and polish up those writing samples. There are some good leads in today’s list. And without further ado, here they are.
