Need Extra Money? Start Freelance WritingFreelance writing is prefect for those who need extra money. There are all sorts of benefits with freelance writing as a side gig. It’s fun, its flexible, it pays pretty well and you can do it on top of your current job. Freelance writing is a huge business thanks to the internet. There’s a constant demand for new and unique content. Website owners are willing to pay freelance writers to create this content for them.

In fact there are tons of freelance writers out there who make some extra money or who make their entire living doing freelance writing. Check them out below.

You’ll notice that each one has their own website. Why? Because this is a great way to practice your writing skills. It’s also a good way to get your name out there. Starting your own site is easy using services like HostGatorBlueHost or GoDaddy for your website hosting. Personally I started this site on BlueHost and have had a great experience!

Creating your own site can cost as little as $4/month.
