Upworthy
 
Upworthy reaches a massive audience with meaningful stories every day, and we're looking for original stories that support our mission of creating a better world. Our stories are generally short (usually less than 500 words), but we're open to unusual ideas that will resonate with millions of people, and we love to experiment. Most stories of this short length will be paid at a fair base rate with traffic and distribution bonuses, and all of that will be hashed out in your contract if we decide to work together. Per www.makealivingwriting.com , expect $200 plus bonuses based upon traffic.
