If I wanted to use my WordPress blog as a place where I create custom posts for individuals who pay me for this service on another site (say, could I legally do it? Let’s say I created a “gig” at, and on my Fiverr page I offered to create a customized post for anyone who will pay me the $5 at the Fiverr site, and if someone decided to purchase my service, could I then go ahead and create a custom post for them on my WordPress blog? I’m hoping I can do this.


    The blog I need help with is



    Hi there – that sort of site would not fit within our Terms of Service, since sponsored posts are not allowed:

    You’d be better off with a self-hosted site for that.

    If you have any other questions, just let us know.



    Given the going rate for paid blog posts, unless you can guarantee them a minimum amount of genuine organic traffic in excess of 500 uniques, I doubt you’ll find this venture worth undertaking. You’ll get paid more to write posts that people put on their own existing websites.
