Here’s a site that I stumbled upon when I was doing a search for freelance writing gigs that pay weekly. It appears to be geared more for the college student. The name of the site is Oboulo.
Oboulo.com is a site where authors can submit their papers, dissertations, articles, essays, presentations, etc for publishing and payment. The one caveat is that the writing must be original and not plagiarized. They take plagiarism seriously.
For each work that is accepted, Oboulo will pay the author $10. As an Ambassador for Oboulo (that means I signed up to be able to submit my papers to Oboulo), I can offer readers my Ambassador code, which is “babab7.”
If you decide to sign up with Oboulo, insert the babab7 Ambassador code after you’ve registered and instead of getting $10 per published document, you’ll receive $15 for each published document.
According to their website, they pay via PayPal once your account hits $10. The good thing about Oboulo is that it’s not limited to the US. When I signed up, the country listing ranged from Albania to Zimbabwe and everything in between.
I’m not sure how much I’ll submit to Oboulo since I’m not currently in school and my writing plate is rather full, but as I’ve said before, freelance writers always need to have options.
