Update – I’ve had a pretty good response to this and have received several great articles. It’s going to take me some time to go through them but please, please don’t think I am not going to post your article if I have not responded to you yet. I have them all in a special folder in my email, and will get back to you ASAP. When and if yours is posted, you will get payment as soon as I post it so please don’t worry about that.
I am super excited to tell you all about an idea I’ve been having for awhile. I am always getting emails with questions, and great ideas for topics of discussion! So, I started thinking…with all you creative Raining Hot Coupons’ readers, I would LOVE to get YOUR help!
I am looking for some “Raining Hot Writers”! It will be a great way for some of you Stay At Home Mom’s and Dad’s to earn a little extra MONEY here and there too!
Here’s my plan and my idea….
I would love for you all to write up a post about whatever “Money Saving, Frugal” topic you’d like! This is the creative part…thinking about what you would like to tell others.
Here are some examples of past topics:
- How to save money when planning a Birthday Party
- How to Meal Plan
- Freezing Food
- How to save money on “Knock-off” brands
- Saving money purchasing online
- Paying down debt
- Organizing Bills
- Frugal Recipes
- ETC….(I’m excited to hear your topics)
I’m going to pay you too! If you’re topic gets posted, you will get $5 cash via Paypal! Plus, there is NO LIMIT on how many times you can contribute….hey, I may even want to hire one of you to do this on a consistent basis for Raining Hot Coupons!
Depending on the quality of the articles and how much the RHC readers enjoy them, I may pay more in the near future for each article but right now this is a test to see how it goes. I may post up to 1 (maybe even 2 a day). That means you could earn a good amount of money submitting your articles each month. 😉
Rules….Darn those things….Let’s call them Guidelines!
* You will need to make sure your content is original and in your own words.
* Make sure you are giving CREATIVE and UNIQUE tips that most of us may have not though of or ever heard of.
* Personality – please don’t make this boring…we want to read fun pieces with your personality infused – be cheesy…nothin’ wrong with that! 😉
* Please add a photo or two to your post. If you find this photo on another website please just be sure to include a link to their website at the bottom of the post.
* Remember, this is a coupon, money saving site so if there are coupons for products or links of places for them to save money, etc, don’t forget to include links in the post too!! I Love these!
Email your article to me at sarah@raininghotcoupons(DOT)com – If I choose to post your article, I will let you know and send your payment or gift card (whichever you choose!).

Sent you a message. I’ve been writing articles with the hope that one day I could get paid for helping others how to do gardening on the cheap, free plants and all. Lets face it I can use extra money.
Alisa saysMarch 2, 2012 at 10:43 am
and we could all use pointers on gardening!! so much cheaper then getting produce at the store!!
Gail saysMarch 2, 2012 at 11:19 pm
Alisa, when I see the price of produce and herbs at the stores or farmers markets I cringe. I started gardening when my son was a baby, he was allergic to every thing. Now at 32 he loves vegetables and can out cook the best of us, I believe it was because he was involved from the beginning. Gardening can be fun with your kids and even more fun when you not opening your wallet. I have great ideas to share, but want a commitment first from raininghotcoupons.com

Is there a certain format that you would prefer this to be emailed to you? A PDF? Just an email, etc?

A friend and myself have gathered together and made a recipe for tamels. It is healthy and easier to make…sure everyone would like to learn how to do them. Let me know if this would make a good story post. thanks
