Paid Article Writing Opportunities for Bloggers

If you are a blogger who is looking for paid writing opportunities then I suggest you subscribe to Technorati newsletters.  I just received my newsletter and wanted to pass the news of these opportunities on.  If you’re interested, please contact with your blog name, content overview, URL, Technorati authority, and contact information.

IBM A Smarter Planet

IBM is hiring bloggers to write articles for A Smarter Planet. A Smarter Planet provides thought-provoking content and a starting point to talk about the issues raised. You can see some of the content here and here. Topics they’re looking for include:

Smarter Cities: As populations grow at a fast clip, they are stressing our city infrastructures. Smarter transportation, policing, governance, and grids promise relief to urban areas.

Smarter Energy: With smarter grids, utilities can manage the flow of power through their systems. And consumers can manage their appliances and use of energy at the household level.

Smarter Healthcare: Using tools like electronic medical records, wireless computing devices and health support networks, innovators are making our systems smarter and more affordable.

Blogger Test Drives

An automaker is interested in providing vehicles for bloggers to test drive for a few days and to write about the experience. They’re not looking for auto bloggers, they’re looking for lifestyle bloggers who cover topics like travel, fine dining, and culture. They will arrange the drop-off and pick up of the vehicle.

Mamapedia Featured Bloggers is looking for bloggers who write on topics that are of interest to moms to feature on Mamapedia Voices. They launched earlier this year and are reaching an audience of almost 1 million moms. You can get more information by signing up at Mamapedia. Please be sure to mention that you found out about this opportunity from Technorati.
