If you have started a blog as a way to earn money or maybe it started as a hobby and has developed over time, you may be wondering just how you can find paid blog work.

The majority of the income I receive on my blogs comes in via emails, but I have been blogging for 11 years and over time I have built up the contacts for these. It can be really disheartening if you are a new blogger and your inbox is dead.

Firstly, it is worth remembering that brands and companies can not work with everyone and they will have their own expectations, but that is not to say you will not get any work. You just need to be realistic, you will struggle to get potential collaborations if you are a new blog with minimal posts and low social media and stats.

I don’t want to put anyone off blogging, I just think that sometimes people need to look at the reality of blogging. It took almost 2 years for me to get my first paid income on my blog and then a lot more to get to where I am now. That doesn’t mean you can’t do it sooner, so much has changed since then but I just hope that it helps people realise that it is not an overnight income.

Now, let’s get back to why you are really here. If you are looking to find paid blog work, aside from that coming in via email, here are 3 places that I always go looking for extra work.

3 Places to find potential paid blog work


This is probably one of the easiest sites to use and I have had steady posts coming through from here.

When you set up your account it will match you to relevant campaigns on the marketplace. From here you can choose whether to put in a pitch for the job or decline.

One thing to remember here is the prices are always in USD, so you need to take that into account when you are looking at your income.

Get Blogged –

I still use Get Blogged, but not as much as I used to before as they now charge more for their commission cut. So for all the jobs, you will lose 12.5% of the job price, which soon starts to add up!

Their site works very similar to Intellifluence, there is a marketplace where you can look for all the jobs that are currently being advertised and then from there you are able to pitch for the jobs that you feel are suitable. Should they accept your pitch you are able to then complete the work and will get paid via PayPal.

Like I said earlier, I don’t tend to use this site as much due to the amount they take for commission. The jobs are usually lesser paid than when they come via your email directly so to then have the commission taken off on top is a little bit of a pain, but it is still some income and I do use it when my email is quiet.

Twitter and Facebook –

These are both great places to find jobs and get your blog out there a little more.

On Facebook there are lots of groups to help you out, just search for things such as UK Bloggers, Blogger Ops etc and you will find a whole host of potential groups to join. Some will be better than others but each should give you the chance to find ops.

On Twitter if you search #BloggersWanted you will sometimes be able to find some posts there for jobs that are coming up, unfortunately, some bloggers are using this hashtag to promote their work rather than what it should be used for, however, I use this for creating my own lists for PR’s and brands that do offer up collaborations so I can keep an eye on them.

There is work out there, no matter what blogging niche you have or how long you have been blogging. It is just about making those first contacts and reaching out to see what may come along. Give it time though, the effort and hard work will pay off if you let it.
