Writing can be a good way to earn money, but it depends on various factors.
Those factors are the writing style, niche, target audience, and platform used.
Earning money with writing can be done in two ways.
The first way is a one time thing where you get paid once for an article you’ve written as a freelancer for a client/business.
The second way takes the form of a passive income, and this is where you set up your own blog/website where your articles will be published. The website will generate you money through affiliate marketing and ads.
The fastest way and the more rewarding on the short term is the first way, i.e. freelance writer.
As a newbie freelance writer, you can either scout for jobs in freelance platforms and try to make your place bearing in mind the fierce competition that’s there, or submit your article directly to the websites that are looking for content and that are willing to accept multiple articles.
The second option sounds more appealing, doesn’t it ?
What If I told you that you can earn at least $100 dollars for each article you submit and gets accepted ? Amazing, right ?
But wait, do I have to be a great writer ? Hmm.. Let’s see what one of the websites I will be sharing with you says about that:
You don’t need to be an expert — you just need to have English equal to that of a native speaker, a sense of humor, and a love for things unusual or interesting — Listverse.com
In the list below, I’m going to share with you 10 websites that pay a minimum of $100 dollars per article:
- Listverse — A website that pays writers $100 dollars for articles that write about lists of interesting and uncommon facts.
Note: They only accept submissions from the US, UK, NZ, Ireland, Canada, Australia, and South Africa.
- Cracked.com — A humor website that pays writers for entertaining and informative articles.
- A List Apart — A website that covers web design and development and pays for in-depth articles.
- The Penny Hoarder — A personal finance website that pays for articles on saving money and earning money online.
Note: Only some geographic locations are allowed. If you were able to access their website, then you’re allowed.
- International Living — A website that covers travel and lifestyle topics and pays for articles about living abroad.
- Income Diary — A website that publishes articles on making money online, entrepreneurship, and marketing.
- Great Escape Publishing — A website that focuses on travel writing and photography and pays for articles and photos.

Writing these articles can be done either manually, or with the help of AI.
AI is of a great help nowadays, and can also help write articles.
While I highly don’t recommend using AI and copy-pasting, I find it a great tool for generating ideas and helping with the research process.
If you intend to use an AI writing tool, I recommend that you rewrite the article in your own style and give it a personal touch.
Whilst ChatGPT (free) has gained popularity these days, there are other tools (freemium) that are older than ChatGPT and are more suited for a specific task (unlike ChatGPT).
Which AI tool is better for article writing? 🤔
Let’s ask ChatGPT !
is Chatgpt better than other ai tools for writing articles ?
ChatGPT is a state-of-the-art language model developed by OpenAI and has been trained on a massive amount of text data. It is capable of generating human-like text and can be used for writing articles. However, whether it is better than other AI tools for writing articles depends on the specific requirements and the context in which it is being used. Some other AI tools might be better suited for certain tasks or industries. Ultimately, it is important to choose the tool that best meets your needs.
In my personal experience, I find ChatGPT good for writing articles, but not great. It can’t generate long enough text, and it’s not as fine-tuned as other AI tools specifically tailored for text generation.
I have looked for other alternatives (paid alternatives) and found 3 that are worth sharing.
