There are publications and companies that pay people to write articles for their blogs. Thus, by writing articles for others, you can make some pocket money or even a full-time income. It all depends on how much time you are willing to put into writing articles!

Therefore, in this article, you can see a handful of websites that pay you to write technical articles for them. You can see their name, the URL, and the approximate sum they pay you.

Websites that pay for technical articles

These companies/publications pay from $100 to $800 per article. It depends on the topic of the article, the complexity and the level of knowledge.

If you are just starting out with technical writing, I recommend pitching companies that pay at the lower end because you are more likely to get the gig! Publications that pay more for articles, usually have higher requirements. However, that does not mean you should do it that way! Approach any publication you want, and shoot your shot.

Thus, let's see the websites you can pitch to write for them.
