As more and more people are recognizing the power of the internet in general, and blogs/websites in particular, more websites are popping up every day, many of which need writers.

Websites that offer blogging jobs are usually more than willing to pay for the content, either on a per-post basis or every so many days/weeks/months, much like a regular salary.

Tip: As with any job posting, do your research and make sure the opportunity is legitimate before jumping in blindly. If the job seems too good to be true, it probably is.
