Where to Apply for Online Writing, Editing and Blogging Jobs

A number of friends have asked me where they can possibly get an online or remote writing job.

Well, today, I am sharing a list of these sites:

LinkedIn

Mediabistro

Outsourcely

OnlineJobs Ph

PowertoFly

Problogger

You need to have a profile to apply and to search for job openings in LinkedIn, Outsourcely and OnlineJobs Ph. For Mediabistro, PowertoFly and Problogger, you can search and apply for jobs even without a profile on their site.

Now, if you have your own blogs, you can apply/register your blogs to these sites so you can be considered for possible assignments:

SponsoredReviews

Blogdash

Linkvehicle

Postjoint

Payu2blog

You can also bid on the published/featured assignments on SponsoredReviews, Blogdash and Postjoint.

There are still other sites for blogging assignments but these are the ones where I have been able to receive payments so far. They’re legit 🙂

WARNING: Under no circumstances should you apply/receive assignments from Linkworth as they never pay! You can google online and see that they have done this to many others bloggers. Spare yourself the frustration and stay away from Linkworth.

TIP : You can also go to blogs and websites and check if they have a Work for Us/ Write for Us or Submissions link. Most of these sites are willing to pay while some may just offer you exposure. Of course, exposure does not pay for your internet or electricity bill, so go ahead and choose the paying sites  🙂

There you go. I will be adding more to the list above from time to time.

A toast to your love for words!

Sylvia Plath’s Morning Song

My first opportunity to know Sylvia Plath and to read her work was by way of her only novel: The Bell Jar.

Being a Psychology major then in Cebu in the ’90s, someone referred me to this particular work of hers. I was told that it would help me to get into the mind, the thoughts of someone who was said to suffer mental illness which was what the book was about. But then when I attended a writing workshop (my first one), one of the panelists there commented that my poetry was dark and reminded him of Sylvia Plath. His views sparked my interest to look up her poetry.

Sylvia Plath lived a tragic life but what beautiful poetry she wrote! I would like to share here one of her “more positive” poems which dealt with the birth of her child.

Morning Song

Love set you going like a fat gold watch.
The midwife slapped your footsoles, and your bald cry
Took its place among the elements.

Our voices echo, magnifying your arrival. New statue.
In a drafty museum, your nakedness
Shadows our safety. We stand round blankly as walls.

I’m no more your mother
Than the cloud that distills a mirror to reflect its own slow
Effacement at the wind’s hand.

All night your moth-breath
Flickers among the flat pink roses. I wake to listen:
A far sea moves in my ear.

One cry, and I stumble from bed, cow-heavy and floral
In my Victorian nightgown.
Your mouth opens clean as a cat’s. The window square

Whitens and swallows its dull stars. And now you try
Your handful of notes;
The clear vowels rise like balloons.
