My experience with Get Blogged
I’ve now completed 5 assignments with Get Blogged, including 4 paid written posts and 1 social content creation assignment. While these haven’t been my highest paying opportunities, they are often both enjoyable and flexible as you get to pick the projects that you want to work. Get Blogged have also been great at offering support to me whenever needed and have always made prompt payment following the assignment being approved by their control team.
Signing up to Get Blogged as a new blogger (DA 5+) is a great way to find paid blog work and build your confidence in working towards blogging assignment briefs! Their network is always growing so this really is an opportunity worth signing up to and watching for future developments. I’d recommend joining their Facebook group too if you want to be the first to know about their latest assignments (and member exclusive competitions).
