12 Sites for Moms That Pay $100+ to Write (Make Money Now as a Stay-at-Home Mom)

Let me ask you a question mama:

Do you think you’re a good writer?

12 Sites That Pay Moms $100+ to Write (Make Money Now as a Stay-at-Home Mom)

Are you making less than $100 a month with your blog right now?

If you answered yes to both of these questions, then have I got a great way to help you make money now.

Wouldn’t it be nice just to make some extra cash on the side and so you can go buy that pair of shoes you’ve had your eye on?

Or, if this is a need, have the option to work from home for good?

Well, if you’re a mama blogger want to learn how to get paid for blogging? Yes, you can get paid to guest post!

If you don’t have a blog, but want to start one, I have an easy step-by-step tutorial on how to start a blog!

Think of it this way:

If you do one paid blog post a month, it can cover your Tailwind account, hosting fees, blog image subscription or anything else you use for your blog! Awesome right?

There are a lot of blogs that allow others to guest post on their blog and many of them actually pay you to blog for them!

I know! It’s ah-mazing.

I’ve been freelance writing for around four years now and have come across sites that pay $100 or more to write. These are perfect for stay-at-home moms, mama bloggers or freelance mamas! Be sure to look through each blog’s content to get an idea of what they are looking for before you reach out to them.

And if you’re interesting in making a living as a writer – like me – check out my other site, Elna Cain for some awesome free resources!

Bonus: Another Easy Way to Make Money As a SAHM

The best way to have longevity with making money online is to diversify your income.

What does that mean?

It means having different income streams online. Typically, if you have a blog you can start monetizing it right away.

It doesn’t mean you’ll get income from day one or a lot of income, but you can set the foundation for monetizing blog posts to help you get some income later.

For example, it took around two months after I published my income generating blog post with affiliate links to make a commission.

I promoted SiteGround in the start a blog post and after sharing writing a good tutorial and sharing it on social media, I was able to get a sale and then another and another.

To help you out with affiliate marketing, I have a guide on how to promote your affiliate links on your blog and on your posts. I’d love it if you checked it out. Just sign up below!

Over to you – tell me how you create income with your blog! I would love to hear it. Or, if you are interested, what kind of income streams are you interested in doing?

I am irene okoth,34 yrs of age a single mother of two ,a boy and a girl,and I am truly impressed and I am grateful and humbled ,to see mom’s are coming out in large numbers showing what they can do interms of pushing on with their careers from home,it actually does not end there once you give birth,it is a blessing to work from the comfort of your home and knowing your kids are safe and also if look at it in another angle nowadays you dont need a nanny,you can do things by yourself and work at the comfort of your home once you are done with your house chores ,this platform is just a blessing in disguise.Reply to irene

Elna, I’d love to start a blog. I plan to just write about my life, what I do daily as a mom, educator, etc. I’d like to get paid for this. My son’s friend has a YouTube channel where he plays video games and he makes money from that. I’m hoping I can make money from writing about my thoughts and feelings about my daily life. Can you, please, tell me how to get started? Thank you!Reply to Megan
Hi Megan, That sounds awesome! I’m so glad you want to start a blog and start making money blogging too. For your niche to work you have to align your blog for your audience only. Have posts that can help your audience with a problem. So if you want to blog about your personal life, how will it relate to your audience? On this blog, I don’t blog much about my life of being a mom to twins, but when I do I try to solve a problem and help my audience too. Here’s an example of doing that: https://twinsmommy.com/kindergarten-drop-off-easier/Reply to Elna
I take so much inspiration from your blog so thank you so much. I am a father and after reading wonderful experiences of the stay at home dad https://stayathomedadworld.com I am thinking of staying at home myself to look after my child. I am hesitant and I wanted to reach out to hear other opinions about how common it is to be a stay at home dad and if it is recommended. Thank you.Reply to David
Hey David, That’s great to hear! Yes, staying home and working from home is a great. Both my husband and I do it and we have twins to boot! I don’t know many stay at home dads but it isn’t unusual. Enjoy the journey!Reply to Elna
I am so happy that I found your post. I am just starting out and I am setting up my own website to start blogging. I like the ideas of the links and sites that you shared. I can do all of it. I didn’t know where to start and guest blogging is what I want to start out with and I have been ask to partner with Amazon and a few online catalogs.

Totally love your article. so informative.Started a blog but haven’t brought myself to launching it. i love crafts fashion and leaving healthy stuff but am yet to put this down.Ijust don’t know how to start.Reply to Lill_y
Hey Lilly! You can do it! I’m here to hold your hand to start a blog 🙂Reply to Elna
I love this. I have been looking for a list to get me started and this is a great resource. I wonder if they respond though. How long do you wait to know if it’s yay or nay?Reply to Daisy
Hi Daisy, It might be a while before they respond. So, make sure you don’t use the same pitch idea with several sites as two or more may pick up the story!Reply to Elna
Thanks Elna! Great Tips as always! 🙂Reply to daisy
This was a great article — very informative. I am currently working on building my blog and I have hopes to some day make some money from it. I love to write so first posting seems like the way to go. The question I have is, when I submit an article to guest post does my article have to be strictly original to that website, or can I submit an article that I have already published on my blog?Reply to Karlie
Hey Karlie! Thanks for stopping by and what kind words! Thank you so much. I’m happy to hear you want to monetize your blog! Yay! For your question, it’s best to have an original article when submitting to contributor site. So don’t recycle your pitch articles to different contributor sites. If two sites say yes, you can’t give them both the same post!Reply to Elna
Thank you so much! This was such a helpful article. I’m a new blogger and although really nervous, I’m excited to discover new blogs and learn the world of guest postingReply to Sheree
Hi Sheree! So happy you found sites that pay helpful! Making money blogging doesn’t have to be hard or take a long time! This is a quick way to earn money for sure!Reply to Elna
This was a great post. I found it informative and helpful. I have been blogging for about 6 months now and I have just gotten into the world of really beginning to monetize it. I have been teaching on online marketing and growing the blog but in 2019 I am really looking to make this a full time income and teach others how to do that as well.Reply to Fancy
Hi Fancy! That’s great to hear! Sites that pay is a great side hustle to get some fast cash for sure! Good luck smashing your goals for 2019!Reply to Elna
Another brilliant post! I’ve been reaching out for guest post ops and getting replies that I can pay hundreds of dollars to be featured on their sites! To find a list of sites that might even pay me is so refreshing. Thanks, Elna!Reply to Erica
Hey Erica! Yes! There are many sites that pay you for guest posting! Don’t go paying THEM now 🙂Reply to Elna
Hi I’m a stay at home mom. How do I get started?Reply to Iris
Hey Iris! Do you have a blog? The first thing is to have a blog and then you can either offer a service or do some affiliate marketing to start making money. These sites that pay will help you along the way with that extra spending cash!Reply to Elna
❤️ this!! So helpful. I really need to read ur article monetizing my blog. I start in July but have been nervous and unsure on how to do it!Reply to Katlyn
Hi Katlyn! Thanks you like this post! It’s a great way to get some extra income before the holidays!Reply to Elna
Hey Elna. Thanks so much for this post. I’ve just started a blog 3 weeks ago so I’m learning how to balance being a mom of 2 under 2 with blogging, work and everything else I have to do. I’m so glad for these resources to make some extra cash and to make my blog better. I’m excited to startReply to Kerine
Hey Kerine! You go mama! Love the name of your blog too! Enjoy the journey of blogging and if you need some quick cash just check out this post for sites that pay!Reply to Elna
How helpful! I love when moms share valuable information with other moms! This is exactly what I have been looking for!Reply to Morgan
Hey Morgan! So glad!!! Enjoy writing for these blogs!Reply to Elna
I love your energy, its very warm and caring. I am a divorced mom struggling with the ends and the outs of everything. I was wondering if we could chat sometime. I’d love to collaborate minds and share experiences with someone who seems very supportive of women who are amazing with verbiage but are struggling with how to make it work. Thanks.Reply to Angela
Hey Angela, Sorry to hear that but happy to see you aren’t giving up and you want this to work out! I’d love to chat. Just head over to my Facebook page @twinsmommyblog if you want!Reply to Elna
Hello, Your page and comments are so informative, so I wanted to say thank you for that. I am an aspiring writer. I am currently going to school so I can get a Bachelors in English so I can be a professional writer. Until then, I would like to build my experience by writing online. One question I have is how exactly do you pitch an idea? Do you just say, this is who I am and what I think? Any information would be helpful. Thanks, KelleyReply to Kelley
Hey Kelly! Thanks so much for stopping by! As for pitching to guest blogs just be friendly and tell them you are interested in guest posting for their blog and either supply ideas or summaries or drafts.Reply to Elna
Elna, Thanks so much for this list! I’m working to get into guest posting and freelancing with my posts so this is absolutely perfect. I appreciate the comprehensive help!Reply to Carly
Hi Carly, That’s awesome! Have fun guest posting!Reply to Elna
Thanks for sharing Elna! Exactly the list I was looking for:)Reply to Yvonne
Hi Yvonne! You’re welcome! These blogs that pay moms are updated and are a great way to get your brand and blog out there! Good luck!Reply to Elna
Hi Elna, This information is super helpful- thank you! A couple quick, and veeeery beginner, questions :). Do you typically write articles first then ask the sites if they are interested or do you contact them and ask for topics that they would like written about? Also, I’m considering starting my own blog (exciting, overwhelming, yikes haha) and am wondering if you suggest working on my own blog first or starting off as a guest blogger to gain experience and some income. Thanks!! LaurenReply to Lauren
Hi Lauren, Great questions!!! For guest posting, I wouldn’t write the article first. I would pitch ideas first (the owner won’t give you ideas; they expect you to provide ideas to them). So email some ideas only and hopefully you’ll get a response. As for starting a blog first, YES! Guest posting is to help you BRING TRAFFIC back to your blog. So you need to link to your blog in your author bio. So start your blog first, put up a post or two and then start guest posting! Good luck! And by the way, my other blog Imperfectly Perfect Mama has free guest posting if you want! https://www.imperfectlyperfectmama.com/contribute/ I find sometimes that FREE guest posting is easier to get accepted and build your portfolio FIRST before you start getting the paid guest posting projects.Reply to Elna
This is an Amazing list! I blog, but I would love to write more. Getting to stay home with my baby is everything to me. I look forward to trying a few of these out.Reply to Catmomdo
Hi! That’s awesome! As a new mom, being able to stay home is something I wanted to do. I found getting paid for writing the easiest and quickest way to generate a side income! I’m glad these sites will help you stay home too!Reply to Elna
Hello Elna, I am a stay-at-home mom. My daughter has Cancer every time I try to work she gets sick and ends up in the hospital but I write and write on her page and have been telling her story for 14 years. She has had brain Cancer for those 14 years and is now 15 years young. We have found all over the United States to try to find a cure she said 11 brain surgeries and went blind at 9 years old in 2012 my life is one to go after another. But I feel like I am now a nurse and I know more than the average person about how anything works including hospitals drugs work for certain afflictions etc. People have told me over and over again I need to write or blog. They say that they love my detailed accountings of our daughters tumultuous journey. I have no idea how to do that, and no money to pay for blog businesses that I don’t even know if they are legit. Is there anything out there for someone like me? I started a blog on Facebook called “LIVING with cancer” and it is also on pinterest. Anything you could help me with, I would so appreciate it. Thank you & God-bless MonicaReply to Monica
Monica, my name is Sarah. I am also a hospital mom. I am very interested in finding a website that hosts on the topic of how we struggle and cope. A site where we can share experiences and help others find resources.Reply to Sarah
Hey Monica! We’ve been messaging on Facebook so I won’t go much into this here. I feel you have a great voice for a blog and a powerful story behind your brand. I say go for it!Reply to Elna
Thank you so much for sharing this! I have been looking for this exact info!Reply to Meg
Hi Meg, You’re welcome! So happy you found the right post!Reply to Elna

I need the extra income and most importantly i need something just for me. Something i can be excited about and proud of…Where do I start?Reply to Gracie
Hi Gracie! You have a rich tapestry of experiences you can share with other moms! I say blog all of it. Lifestyle blogs do well for monetization. It’s centered around a community and if you can build that community of other moms with similar experiences your set!Reply to Elna
Hi! I love writing and am interested in blogging and making money would be a great bonus! I have two kids daughter age 5 and son age 3. I do a lot of diy, home decor, lots of cooking especially kid friendly recipes and kids crafts, so I have a lot to write about! How can I get started? I made a profile with blogger.com Thank youReply to Missy
