With an audience of over 7.5 million readers monthly, this is the blog of choice for health writers who want to reach as many people as possible and get paid while doing so, as each accepted post earns you $125. The Greatist covers topics such as health, mental well-being, and relationships, in addition to content about personal journeys through weight loss and other endeavors. The site shies away from articles that may not be inclusive for its entire readership, so avoid writing about expensive health retreats and similar subjects. Instead, create content related to your experiences to offer its readers a voice to follow. Posts need to fit within the 1,000 to 1,500-word range and should be submitted using Google Docs.
