Have you spent hours on end looking through websites to try and find a freelance writing/blogging job? Well I hope I can help you by suggesting some of the best places to look for this kind of work.

People Per Hour is UK's No 1 Freelancing Community, This one works by you (the blogger/writer) advertises what you can offer and how much it will cost the client. For example,' I can write an engaging 400/500 word blog article in 60 minutes for £10'. If a customer finds that interesting then they pay a down payment to start the job. Then if they are happy you then finish the job for them.
Jobs are also advertised whereby you can send a proposal for the job.

Fiveer is another great site and under their 'Articles and Blogs' section state that you can 'hire professional writers for your blogs and articles. You advertise what you can blog about like People Per Hour, although I did notice the hourly rate was a tad less on this site. One advert said 'I will write top quality content for you up to 500 words for £3.51' and there is a page full of these!!

Guru  has lots of blogging/writing jobs. They have a global network of over 1.5 million gurus listed on their database. The client pays Guru then Guru pays you which is a win, win situation as they will make sure they get the payment and save you any problems.

All you do is join Guru and create a profile and define the freelance services you want to offer. Employers will then find you by these services when they search for freelances to hire. You then apply for jobs that interest you. Guru also showcase previous work you have completed to back up your proposals. They also provide job matches daily so you don;t miss out on an opportunities.

They also give you all the professional tools you need to define milestones, set tasks, communicate with employers, share files, and agree upon payment schedules.

Freelancer which is well established and has a good reputation. They have freelancers on their list for any kind of job such as: Logo Design, Business Cards, Graphic Design, Website Design, Market Research, Telemarketing, Search Engine Optimization and lots more.

You sign up, create a profile then check out the thousands of jobs listed and if you see any you like the look of then make a bid for them by offering your service and the fee you would charge per hour.

A few more sites to take a peak at are Blogging Pro  Whatever you write on you will find a steady stream of employers looking for a blog writers versed in many subjects.

Freelance Writing Jobs other sites say that Craig's list is Craig's list but this site does try to exclude any posts that look like scams but check the postings well.

Media Bistro have a freelance section which covers a whole range of jobs from TV, PR/marketing and book publishing and social media.

Finally the Pro Blogger's board is one to check on, on a regular basis. It's always full the brim of freelancing jobs.
