Writers Wanted

Rustyautos is hiring a team of writers to create articles. Currently, the site offers helpful “How to” type articles to help DIYers fix car problems.

I want to expand the site into a few other areas. I’d like to include lots of auto tool reviews, a motorsport section, and a ton more “How to” type posts. I want to build this site into the ultimate location for DIY auto care, but I’m going to need help.

If you have mechanical experience and can write a helpful post, I’m interested.

Don’t have the mechanical experience to share? No problem! I’m also looking for good auto tools, auto care, and motorsport writers. The topics are wide-ranging and if you can write a good article, I’m interested.

If you’d like to get paid for your knowledge, skill, and experience, then this is a great opportunity.


I pay $0.05 per word, and our articles are all either 1,000, 2,000, or 3,000 words in length. So you’ll be paid either $50, $100, or $150 (US dollars) per article, depending on the length.

Article lengths are assigned based on the topic, so you’ll know up-front how much you’ll be paid for your efforts


Writers on car care topics may have their bio appear on their articles and can mention a social media profile in that bio also if you choose to build up an audience over time.

However, some articles will be ghostwritten. For example, a mechanical “How to” post will be edited by a qualified mechanic (me) and will therefore bear my name as the author.


All writers will be expected to produce three articles per month. It is critical that you do not miss a publishing date, ever.

Writers who miss a publishing date will be let go. For most freelance writers, three articles per month is perfect. That’s plenty of time to work on it without being overwhelmed.

Writers can always pick up additional articles to write if they’d like more work.


You understand and agree that all photos, videos, written content, and all other media submitted to becomes the exclusive property of and you do not have the right to republish that content on your own site or any other site.


This opportunity is available for writers around the world. This is a freelance writing gig and you will be an independent contractor.
