Get Paid to Write for Blogs


Get Paid to Write for Blogs

This post is a part of the Get Paid to Write for Blogs Course Launch! Get Paid to Write for Blogs is a brand new course created by Cat Alford of Budget Blonde. Cat makes a full-time income from writing for blogs, and this course will teach you how to do the same.

As many of you know, blogging is not my full-time job. I started blogging almost two years ago as a means to share my voice and my views on personal finance. Like most bloggers, when I started blogging, I was pretty much writing for me and a handful of very supportive friends and family members. I realized quickly, though, that blogging was something that I loved, and I began engaging more in the personal finance blog community.

One of the first things I realized when I started following other blogs was that there was a name that I saw repeatedly on other blog sites, and that name was Cat Alford, otherwise known as “Budget Blonde.” Initially I was a “Cat hater” because the first time I visited her site, her main picture revealed that she was not in fact a blonde. For the past 15 years, I haven’t been a natural blonde, but I was born blonde and I will always associate with being a blonde, and I thought that Cat was just making fun of my fellow blondies.

From Hater to Fan

Over time, though, I grew to love Cat because I loved her writing and her personal finance perspective, and a little over a year ago, when Cat and her family moved to New Jersey, she and I became in real life friends. For almost two years now, I have watched the growth of not just Cat’s blogging business, but also her writing and consulting businesses. She is constantly looking to challenge herself with new business opportunities, and I love this latest one, Get Paid to Write for Blogs.

In this video course, Cat has taken her years of experience writing for her blog and dozens of others and shared how you can replicate her success. In this course, Cat shares 29 highly detailed videos that are split between 8 different modules, and I even make a cameo in one of them.

A Great Investment in Yourself

I was fortunate enough to get a sneak peek of these videos, and I have to say that they are filled with amazing information that I know would help anyone trying to make money writing for blogs. Even though I am not a full-time blogger or blog writer, I have many friends who make a living doing this, and Cat’s course is a great way to help you fast track your way to making money.

This master course is priced at $497, but if you use my affiliate link, you will get it for 15% off. I know for many people this may seem like a lot of money, but if you are serious about this and take the advice you get from the course, I promise you that you will make this money back in no time. I hope you check it out and let me know what you think!GetPaidtoWriteforBlogs_20LogoDo you make money writing for blogs? Would you pay for a course to help you make more money?

Shannon is a financial planner who left a “traditional” financial services firm to start her own company, The Financial Gym, because she felt traditional financial services firms did not have the tools or resources to help people in their 20s and 30s who are starting out and trying to build assets while also managing debt. She realized that the key to long-term personal financial success is a commitment to financial fitness and making smart financial choices. Through her blog, Financially Blonde, her book, Train Your Way To Financial Fitness, her podcast, Martinis and Your Money and The Financial Gym, Shannon is committed to making financial fitness fun, easy and accessible for everyone.


  1. Bahaha I love that story. I am SO glad I am blonde now – again! Just suits me better haha! I really appreciate all your support of the course and your time to help make a video. It all came out great!

  2. Born a blonde but a bottle blonde today – that’s me too. 🙂 I did notice that Cat wasn’t a blonde too but one of the first posts I read from Budget Blonde must have been one where she showed some olds pics so I knew she “used to be” a blonde.

  3. I never was a hater, but I thought it was funny too that Budget Blonde was not blonde! I think there are probably things we could all learn from this course and I might take it later in the fall when my schedule is a bit more regular.

  4. I am laughing at how everyone said “cat hater!” I write for a credit union newsletter once a month, and that’s it. I’m not sure if I’ll do the writing thing more or not in the future. Depends on if I get a promotion at work or not I guess…

  5. I think people need to recognize the true value of investing in yourself. Student loans have soured many people to the idea of investing in courses, textbooks, etc., but if you are intentional about what you want to learn it can have a very positive impact on your life.

  6. You are a cat hater, yeah those fur balls are annoying at times right. Haha. Well the course seems cool for anyone looking to break free of a traditional 9-5. Anyone who works as hard as Cat does should get paid to write. Talk to you soon.
