Pay for Your Freelance Writing | I've Tried That Why do websites pay

Here’s a list of writing jobs and pay rates for freelance writers, plus how I earned $35,000 my first year of full-time freelance writing. I thought I’d be relying on my husband for financial support, but I had no problems making money freelancing.

As of Oct 2016, the average pay for a Freelance Writer, Technical is $34.39/hr or $53,721 annually.

Proud to say I recognize at least four of the markets above as bloggers who were motivated by my own campaign to encourage pay for blog posts in their decision to start paying guests! I feel really excited to be helping to open new paying markets for freelance writers.
