Internet Brands, a leading Internet media company that operates community and e-commerce websites in the automotive, careers, home, money and business, shopping, and travel and leisure categories, has freelance writer jobs available (with upfront pay) for various niche websites.
These include DoItYourself.com and other home improvement websites, Vetinfo.com and other pet related websites, Fitday.com and other health and fitness related websites, Loan.com and other finance related websites, and Autos.com and other automotive websites.
I have no experience with this company, but they appear to be legit and they are hiring writers at the time of this post. They have many different websites for which they hire on a regular basis, so check the careers page frequently to see what's available.
The rate of pay is $4.00 and up, depending on the article, for all of the opportunities listed below. There's no indication of a minimum word count or any other requirements, so it's hard to judge if this would be worth it. However, it wouldn't hurt to apply if you have experience in some of these areas. Many of the listings require previous experience writing on the topic, but some do not.
If you're interested in applying for any of the Internet Brands job openings, visit the job listings pages below. And, be sure to check the careers page frequently if you miss out on these.
UPDATE: According to several people I've spoken to since this post, Internet Brands pays up to $10 for most articles, and work seems to be reliable.
