Preferably, they want you to submit completed articles that are ready to publish but you can also pitch them ideas. They allow writers to include a short bio at the end of a post and payment is made via PayPal as soon as your post goes live on their website.

If you’re a technology enthusiast, an IT expert, or good at writing technical white papers, LabMice is one site you may want to write for. They require a minimum article length of one full page (1000 to 1500 words) using a 10 pt Arial font size.

LabMice offers a payment of $0.25 cents per word for original, unpublished articles. So, you can easily make $250 for a 1000-word article. And, they also send payments via PayPal.

Just complete the form on their website with a picture of your tutorial’s final result and they’ll let you know if it meets their requirement.
