A Bunch of Paid Writing Opportunities, Week #63
27 paid opps + when to take an idea to Medium vs. pitch it
Hi and happy Monday!
Last week, someone asked me how I decide which articles I pitch to publications versus which ones I post on Medium. I thought this was a great question, so I wanted to share the info here, too! Basically:
Don’t need expert input
Are similar to those that have gotten lots of views on the platform before
Are ones I want to publish more quickly (because it’s newsworthy, an update on my life, etc)
Haven’t gotten accepted by publications I’ve pitched to, or don’t fit any of the publications I write for
Were probably written before I got regular gigs with publications, TBH!
Are some of my better ideas (sometimes at least!)
Are ideas that I immediately think “Ooh, this idea would fit perfectly for what I know this editor/publication likes to discuss”
Are similar to ideas that have been accepted by publications before
Were ideas from PRs who have expert clients willing to share input
Hope that helps! Feel free to respond to this email or comment on this newsletter if you have further questions :)
FYI, there won’t be a newsletter next Monday unfortunately, but I’ll see ya the Monday after!
Now, onto the writing jobs and pitch calls for paid subscribers!
