    For the rest of you all, sorry.

    Here is parsibagan's original post.

    Let's have some, GOOD comments, and not BS, to get this back on track.

    Working as a content writer

    Working as a freelance content writer, might well be one of the best jobs, for those who want to work from home. It might also be one of the worst, depending on whom you are working for. One fine morning you might find a well researched and carefully written article, returned back with the comment that, the word count is short. On discussing the problem with your employer, you discover to your horror, that the headline is not counted as a part of the job. This should set alarm bells ringing.

    However, if you choose to ignore the alarm, you can be rest assured that the day is not far off, when you shall also be required to add a resource box to the end of the text. Next follows the author’s bio. And (blasphemy… starting a sentence with `and’) here is the pièce de résistance. You are paid a certain amount of money to thoroughly research and write an article of 500 words. All of a sudden you are requested to write 10 articles of 50 words each, (remember… headings do not count?) for the same amount of money that a 500 words article fetched.

    The employer also states “There should be no speling or gramaticul errors and the articuls should pass the copyscape com, palgiarism will not be accepted.” Have a broad outlook. Instead of selling your articles for just $1, sell them for what they are worth. By selling them for $1 you are not only spoiling your future, you are also spoiling the future of many other talented writers. Look around and you will find gigs that pay a minimum of $10 per 500 words.
