7 Income Generating Websites!

1. BirdChannel 

Our website, BirdChannel.com, is one of the largest bird websites out there. While we primarily focus on pet birds (parrots and some passerines), no bird topic is off limits. With hundreds of thousands of visitors every month, BirdChannel.com is the place for people to get the latest bird news, videos and information.

What We’re Looking For
Funny articles, like 5 Birds That Will Take Over The World. 

Thought-Provoking articles, like Therapy Birds: “Emotional Support Animal,” Or Merely A Pet?

Passionate, enthusiastic articles, like A Plea For Parakeets.

Feel good and educational articles, like 5 Lessons My African Grey Taught Me

We want writers that get birds and their people. Maybe you’re the person who refers to birds as “birbs.” Maybe you’re the person who all your friends call the “crazy bird lady/man.” If so, let’s talk.

What else are we looking for? People who care: about the craft of writing, about the subject matter, about our readers’ interests.  Read More.

2. Cosmopolitan

Cosmopolitan.com is building a network of talented and eager contributors. We want you to participate!

Send us an essay of no more than 800 words about a memorable, crazy, hilarious, or touching college experience. Stories about friends, class, dating, partying, studying, working, interning — anything that happened to you or around you in college is fair game. (Or: Tell us why you didn’t go to college, why college is bullshit, what you’re doing instead… )

If we publish your essay on Cosmopolitan.com, we’ll pay you $100 — and hit you up for future assignments. Submit here.

3. FlashMint

We, at FlashMint, are looking for talented Flash developers to contribute articles to FlashMint Tuts. If you’re skilled with Flash, Flex, ActionScript, Animation, we’ll pay you $150 for your work.
With every Flash tutorial accepted, you will also get a Short Bio for self promotion with a link to your website.

Within the couple of days we will let you know if your post has been accepted. If this is the case, we will contact you for payment details and personal information.

You might want to check Flash Tutorials Overview for more info before submitting tutorials. Read More.

4. The Introspectionist

The Introspectionist accepts unsolicited article ideas and pitches from freelance writers. Please read our editorial calendar and include the edition and theme for which your article idea would apply.

What We Are Looking For

Every month The Introspectionist chooses a theme and does a deep analysis of that theme. We try to look at a given theme from all angles and examine it in a detail that cannot be met with a single article. Therefore, we are always looking for unique angles on any of our themes. Please read our editorial calendar and if you have an interesting idea to share on any of our themes, do not hesitate to share it with us.

Stylistically, we publish several types of articles.

  • Articles that both tell a story and inform.
  • Persuasive essays, creative non-fiction, and in-depth informational pieces.
  • One piece of short fiction and one poem every month which relate directly to the theme of that issue.
  • We accept shorter submissions for our featured departments.

The departments contain articles from 100 to 500 words and can vary in style from informative to entertaining but must be stimulating and relate to the central theme.

The Introspectionist publishes more intelligent and in-depth articles than your average woman’s magazine. We expect thought-provoking insites, uniquely informative pieces, and above all else, for you to show your work. Every article should have footnotes and links to where the reader can find more information. Reference peer reviewed articles from journals, books, and other high quality material.

Compensation

  • Department piece (from 100 to 500 words), we pay $25.
  • Feature article up to 2000 words, we pay $100.
  • For a feature article up to 5000 words, we pay $200.
  • Short fiction pieces pay $25.
  • Poems pay $25.
  • Each contributor will receive a photograph and short bio in that issue. Read More/Submit

Guest Bloggers and Blog Posts

We look for guest bloggers for a two month series of blog posts, publishing 1 to 3 blog posts per week. Topics can be as broad or as narrow as you want, but must be of specific interest to women and fit into the general overall feel of the The Introspectionist. The guest blogger positions are paid positions. If you would like to be a guest blogger for The Introspectionist, please submit a brief description of your topic idea, including several specific post ideas, and two blog posts as examples of your writing style. You can submit your ideas to [email protected]

5. Knitty

When it comes to winter, nothing could be more Knittylike. We need layers to stay warm, lots of yummy sweaters especially. Cardigans, pullovers, vests…maybe not dickies. But also hats, socks, mittens, gloves, scarves…and what else? What have you created that our readers can’t wait to see? Think traditional shapes knit in an untraditional way, innovative techniques or innovative uses of traditional techniques. Get creative!

Remember that we love new things that have only existed previously in your imagination (remember this and this?)! Be creative! Innovate! We exist to give your work a very visible platform so you can reach thousands and thousands of knitters. So give it your best shot!

To get some ideas about what we love for Winter, take a peek at some of our previous issues.

6. The NewWest

In a time of dynamic change, New West aims to serve as a nexus of dialogue, a bridge between communities that may be distant in geography or occupation, but share common interests and hopes for the region as it inevitably continues to grow. New West is a smart guide to the issues, trends and events that impact the fabric of the region and it stands for forward thinking about the big picture.

The main topics we cover and discuss on New West are broadly: Culture, politics, growth, demographics, energy, environmental issues, new economy (tech, biotech, venture capital, etc.), tourism and travel, lifestyle, outdoors, wildlife, Western literature, film and food.

The majority of our content is provided by our network of editors and writers but we do offer several ways to write with NewWest.Net:

All queries should be sent via email to [email protected].

  • Your own blog on NewWest.Net: If you’re interested in having a room of your own on NewWest.Net, we’re all ears. Read More

7. Perceptive Travel 

If you are a published print book author or anthology editor who is interested in being a part of this award-winning publication, then welcome! Perceptive Travel is designed to plug a hole, to fill a niche, to serve an unserved need for quality writing aimed at independent travelers.

Paleo Recipe Book
If you want to eat truly healthy, lose body fat consistently, normalize your blood pressure, cholesterol levels, prevent cancer, and even boost your brain health and energy levels, you may have heard all over the news that the Paleo Diet has been found to be one of THE best methods of achieving all of these benefits compared to any other popular “fad” diets out there. Buy Your Paleo Recipe Book Here

As a book author with something to say, you can probably count on one hand the travel magazines you respect. Many of those that offered a place for perceptive writers to really let loose have fallen by the wayside. Independent travelers don’t have a whole lot to choose from on the magazine rack. Read More.

I trust these 7 Income Generating Websites are helpful. If you would like to guest blog at The Write Styles, I would love to hear your pitch and will gladly grant you links to the sites of your choice. If you have any ideas or even questions, please feel free to contact me as I would love to hear from you!

Blessed Be,

Sancheo

Writer’s Magic and Inspiration by Michele Barrow-Belisle

Michele Barrow-Belisle has become one of the most sought after authors, her radiant beauty shines through her writings and exploits the allure of her inner nature. Today The Write Styles is truly honored to share A Writer’s Magic and Inspiration By Michele Barrow-Belisle with you.

A Writer’s Magic and Inspiration By Michele Barrow-Belisle

A blogger once described my writing journey so far as a Cinderella Story. He went on to explain how I’d landed an agent and a publishing deal, and that my debut novel had hit the bestseller list, sold audio and foreign language rights, and been optioned for a major motion picture. I remember pausing to reflect on his analogy for a moment, at first wondering if the “magic” of Cinderella took into account the blood, sweat and tears that went into getting my first book published. Then I smiled when I realized that, yes, it really did. Continue reading Writer’s Magic and Inspiration by Michele Barrow-Belisle

Hosting

SiteGround

 Web Hosting

SiteGround is clearly my hosting choice for The Write Styles. I find their pricing remarkably affordable, their speed is incomparable, and their customer service I can truly attest to! They have an online chat, which is most helpful, but they also pick up the phone to call you to ensure all is running smoothly.

Your Platform

WordPress.org

WordPress.org is my  favorite website building site ever, and is what I use to build The Write Styles. Here you can use code or simply pick a theme and make use their various widgets and plugins. I also found that there are thousands of useful themes that you can import and adapt according to your wish. I think the term limitless creativity is rather apt for WordPress.org.

Web Hosting

WordPress.com

WordPress.com offers various plans from free for life, to the most popular Premium plan for $99 per year, and then the Business plan for $299 per year. Please do ensure that you compare their plan to WordPress.org in great depth before you begin your site! WordPress.com does not offer the expected plugins, widgets, nor the other useful tools that you may use when building your website.  Their themes are however extraordinarily professional and sleek, so perhaps you will find whatever meets your needs.
