on Make a Living Writing:
What would your income look like if every assignment paid $100 and up? Sites that pay writers that much or more are out there. Seriously.
But you’re not going to find them on Craiglist or low-rate content mills that pay pennies per word, or worse. And even a large number of writing job boards that promise well-paying gigs turn out to only have gigs that pay enough per assignment to fill your gas tank.
Skip those gigs, and move on to sites that pay better rates so you can truly get paid to write.
