List update

Added Bianca Raven's blog (http://ravens-writing.blogspot.com/) and Athlyn Green's blog (http://www.writeandearnaliving.com/) to the list under the "Sites Where Publishers Will Post Jobs Requests" section. Both are freelance writers with years of experience and they do post writing leads on their blogs. Athlyn Green's writing leads are quite frequent, and you can view them via a JobThread widget she displays on her blog. While Bianca Raven's writing leads are less frequent, she does focus on high paying gigs which she'll cover in detail in a blog entry.

I'm planning to split the "Sites Where Publishers Will Post Job Requests" section, since it appears to have grown quite long, and quite a number of sites are not exactly sites "where publishers will post job requests". Probably into a blog/forum section for those sites where you can find writing leads and a true "Sites Where Publishers Will Post Job Requests" section for bidding sites and other sites that do fall into this category.

Murphy's Law

I was contacted by the owner of a copywriting and copyediting company today. Which would have been nice, since I'm a freelance writer. Well, it would have been nice if that phone call had just come 5 minutes earlier today. Or 5 minutes later today. However, I just so happened to be cutting through my local mall at that time, while en route to the train station. Which just so happened to be having a hip-hop dance competition today (the mall, not the train station)

Guess where I was standing when I received the call :P

Anyway, I did manage to catch her name, and after my attempt to maintain a conversation failed miserably, I established that I would call her later.

So, I called her after 5 minutes and a couple of questions later, she asked about what type of assignments I took. I replied that I usually wrote SEO articles.

She then asked me what was SEO. (I presume her company hasn't taken online assignments before, though she didn't directly state that, so I might have been g…

Iakul's List

Sites paying upfront for articles

Constant Content
A site where writers can showcase their articles with a preset price tag and have interested publishers buy them. Has strict standards for submissions (free of grammar mistakes etc) so check to make sure that you are submitting a flawless article. If you have articles that you have published elsewhere before, you can still sell them for usage rights here.
Content Gather
Content Gather is fairly new, and has only been around since Nov 2016. Their parent company has been around for quite a while though. Content Gather (as of now) does look a lot like Constant Content to me. Like Constant Content,there's a marketplace where writers can submit articles to sell, and a custom job where buyers specify articles. Unlike Constant Content though, there's also an upfront payment when your article gets approved for the marketplace.
Highlights
Highlights is a children's website and they pay for creative stories and articles. Payment rang…

FAQ

Why is the date for this post set way in the future?

When I started this post back in 2008, I wanted this post to be at the top of my blog. Since the more recent blog posts appear higher at the top, I hit on the idea of setting this blog post way in the future. (In hindsight, this was a rather inelegant solution.)

What is Iakul's List?

I stumbled into online freelance writing back in 2008. Started complying a list of sites where I could get paid to write, and hence Iakul's List was created.

Is Iakul's List still being updated?

I used to investigate a site quite thoroughly before I was willing to put it on my list. It took a lot of time and effort, which at this point simply isn't worth my while to expend. However, I'm still unwilling to compromise on the checks I put a site through. I do still plan to update and add new sites to Iakul's List, but expect my updates to be more sporadic. Quite a number of the site descriptions are also outdated, and rewriting…
