I was searching around the Internet for new writing opportunities that pay up-front for articles and blog posts and I came upon the following sites. I’ve never written for these sites myself, so I cannot vouch for them personally, but here is the information for you to find out more yourself. Many of them want “tech” articles/blog posts, so if you are computer savvy or know more about blogging than most people, these may be the jobs for you. Good luck!
