Get Paid to blog: Companies That Pay You

Getting paid to blog can be a pretty cool gig provided you can maintain balance and stick with it through the learning curve. It is not fast or easy money, but it can be extremely rewarding. If you have been blogging for free while building a fan base, you may be ready to start slowly (yes, slowly) incorporating a few income generators.

Here are several ways that you can make money blogging and companies that will pay you to post their links or ads. This is in no way an all-inclusive list, it only includes those companies I am aware of or have done business with.

Remember: If you are taking compensation for a post, link or ad, you need to add the nofollow attribute to be Google compliant.

    Awesome post Angie!! I have been doing a weekly job lead thread in the writing forum on WPLH to help keep folks motivated about writing. There have been a lot of questions about blogging and this fits perfectly! I was surprised you dug up some I had never heard of. I will be checking some of these out for myself.

    Lisa this is a huge list! So many neglect monetizing their blogs. It can be done with credibility and with quality affiliate relationships. I’ve recently implemented affiliations and love it.

  3. Aaron Smith says

    This is a great list and a little overwhelming as well. I have partnered with two affiliate programs and would like to use VigLinks and CrankyAds, however I am concerned with too much. How many affiliates do you recommend for one website?

      Don’t go any faster than you are comfortable with, Aaron. This is an extensive list, but not all aspects will apply to every blog. Stick with those products and services you use and can honestly recommend.
