Write on Elephant, Change our World.

Our Ecosystem makes it easy to Get your message out to thousands—& get paid.

Unlike Instagram or Facebook, Elephant is independent, and mission-driven—and despite having (slightly) fewer resources, we believe in paying our writers to offer quality to our readers.

Elephant was one of the first major sites to pay our best, consistent writers. But it was always hard to measure “best.” Now, we are introducing monthly payments to the top 10 articles on Elephant based on their Ecosystem Score—95% determined by our readers’ actions: reads, hearts, comments, and 5% determined by our Editor’s Picks (so that mission balances popularity). The three runner-up articles will be offered a gift subscription to share with a friend or family member.

Learn more about the Ecosystem via our FAQ. Find our new Contender Leaderboard here.

Note: When folks earn identical scores, we use the number of reads as the tiebreaker.
