If you have been looking around in the internet for a decent paying freelance writing job, you should visit jobs.problogger.net. It is a website dedicated to providing bloggers with jobs to begin monetizing their blogging hobby.
Jobs.problogger.net is the brainchild of one of the more successful blogging gurus, Darren Rowse. He has a well documented blogging history because of his books and e-books. I can say that he has motivated a lot of people to blog with his publications; both digital and physical.
What makes jobs.problogger.net different from other job posting websites?
In most websites that let you find work from home jobs like oDesk or Elance, you post your resume and credentials along with millions of other applicants. You must choose the freelance job that you want and try to apply to those jobs. Your resume must be competitive to be accepted in a freelance job. In jobs.problogger.net the process is less complicated.

All of the jobs in jobs.probloger.net are for bloggers. The majority of the jobs are work from home writing jobs but there are some jobs like website design and SEO related jobs available.
What makes jobs.problogger.net better?
Aside from the concentration of blogging related jobs, there is a large variety of niches to choose from in jobs.probloger.net.
