      This is very interesting. I never considered getting paid to write a post. I’ve been working hard to improve writing skills for my audience. My grammar really sucks sometimes. lol I even bought Pro writing aid recently to help me with grammar issues. I’ll check these sites out and see if they look for niches like work from home because it’s the only topic I feel comfortable writing about.

      Nice post. I learn something totally new and challenging on blogs I stumbleupon on a daily basis.

      It’s always exciting to read through content from other writers and practice a little something
      from their sites.


      Have you ever thought about creating an ebook or guest authoring
      on other sites? I have a blog centered on the same topics you discuss and would really like to have you share some
      stories/information. I know my audience would enjoy your work.
      If you are even remotely interested, feel free to
      send me an email.
