As usual, I’m always looking for new freelance writing opportunities (It’s the Sniff and Scurry in me). Here’s one that is pretty interesting for women ages 18 and over who are interested in health and wellness.
Prevention.com, the online counterpart to Prevention Magazine, is a community dedicated to health and wellness for women. They’re looking for freelance writers to provide content for compensation. According to their website writers can earn up to $100 per month.
In essence, it looks like they want freelance writers to maintain a blog within their community. I’m not sure how the payment works, but I’m thinking it depends on popularity and page views.
The Good and Not So Good
The upside to it is that Prevention is a well-respected magazine and as a freelance writer, having your work published on their site should work for you. The downside (in my opinion) is the $100 per month limitation. While $100 a month is better than a stick in the eye, I prefer not to apply for online writing gigs that have a financial ceiling.
It’s been my experience that the longer my work remains on the Internet, the more traffic it gets and the more income it earns. The $100 cap means that when the articles are good and seasoned and really ready to begin earning quite a few bucks, my earnings are capped at $100 per month.
This opportunity is good for folks looking to be published on the Internet through a reputable company, but in the long run, this freelance writing opportunity is financially limiting.
