You know this really gets me. I want to know what's up with all these friggen cheapskates! I make $25 per article most of the time. Sometimes I do 400 word blog posts for $15 but usually I stick to my articles...$25 a piece. Like some of you other writers out there I have regular clients that like me and pay me a reasonable sum. Once in a while when things get slow I come to these forums to look for another decent gig. I CAN'T BELIEVE how many shameless cheapskates have the BALLS to offer these pathetically low payments. $2 per article and they want it to be perfect in every way. WTF?
But it's your fault. Yes you. The writes out there that are groveling shamelessly for peanuts are screwing it up for everyone. This is real work. ****, you could make more at Mcdonalds! $2-$5 per article. Stop taking these **** jobs. Don't encourage these tight wads to keep posting these crappy deals.
For those of you who just don't know better...you need to look for legit clients who pay a real wage. You know, like a real JOB. If everyone stopped taking these "candy bars for articles" deals guess what would happen. Go ahead guess. The pay would go up. OK, I feel better now.
