With the continued growth and expansion of technology and internet utilities, most things have changed in the past decade taking a shift to the online or virtual platforms. Covid-19 alone came with its limitations and as I can call them advantages because it led many to explore the online community in search of income to sustain them when no movement was to be made in containment of the coronavirus pandemic.
This brings a whole new topic of discussion on the best and most reliable websites or web pages where you or anyone can earn money just by doing what they love at the convenience of their homes. The most interesting thing about online business is that it allows you to work at the convenience of your home with mostly your own schedule but the most disappointing part is the beginning which is never easy in any kind of job or thing to do.
That should not kill your psyche in any way because I believe that if you are determined to do something you will give it your best no matter what and that is what keeps me going as a writer.
Now to our title; Five Best Websites in Kenya where you can find Online Writing Jobs, I took some time to analyze a few websites of choice according to experience and preference.
NOTE: Everybody has their own preferences and this are just but the selected few that are most recommended due to their ease of navigation, employment and chances of getting hired as a beginning writer with less or no experience.
My five best writing websites you can work for in Kenya are:
As the title of the website suggests, this website allows users to earn money online in a variety of ways including writing articles, editing videos, production, software development and even social media marketing technicians.
This is my highest recommendation for any beginner out there because you need nothing other than a sign up and you are ready to start getting hired on jobs you bid for.
Interested individuals can fill a sign up to freelancer at: https://freelancer.com in the sign up as a freelancer section in the website footer.
Though you may be rejected at sign up sometimes due to many submissions and admission criteria, Upwork is the next big thing in making money online.
The website allows you to interact with people from all walks of life instantly and professionally to create job relations that end up landing you into employment or hiring.
This website is more or less the same as freelancer in terms of jobs but you know two different minds cannot think the same.
I love Upwork because they have organized their website in a way that you can see every detail of a job you apply for until it is finished or closed.

Developed and based in Kenya, this website allows to write and earn money while they are teaching you in their mentoring program.
From articles with 300 words and above, you can be sure to earn about Ksh.300 onwards up to no limit.
The most interesting part about this website is that it deals majorly with writing and considers all its members for training freely as they earn from their writings with the aim of empowering content writing in Kenya.

Guru is an Indian word for a master but here they are masters of online jobs including but not limited to designs, online writing and all types of editing. This site is easy to sign up on and only needs verification of your identity for you to get started.
It is a good recommendation for beginners and you can sign up at: https://guru.com
Not only is it a social media app for interactions like those on common socials i.e. Facebook but also a source of employment be it permanent or temporary. Here you get to communicate and link with big companies directly through the jobs section of the app and can search and apply for writing jobs in companies of suit or work for individuals who hire through LinkedIn.
I included it in the list because I have personally been hired from there.
