     Are you a freelance writer who's tired of websites offering $1 for 100 words or $10 for 1,000 words? Well, there's a good news for you. I have a list of some good quality blogs and websites that pay you to contribute content. You do have to offer extremely high quality content to match their publishing standard for these blogs/websites but you don't have to be an established writer. Some websites may give preference to writers who have an active social media presence. I've ignored some of the famous blogs like Smashing MagazineLifehackerLifehackSitePointEntrepreneurMakeUseOfBabble, etc, as they are very choosy with low acceptance rate and they take much longer time to respond. But you can definitely try your luck.
