Oh yes, that's true, I forgot. There is so much work in the pipeline that I will be able to spend the rest of my life churning out flawless prose all day every day on fascinating topics for $16 before tax! Oh joy!

Yeah, that's not my request, but I did see that it was $25 for each of the 6 sets or $150 for the 1700 words, which is still much better than the $27 for 600 word requests that keep getting snapped up!

But it's a simple job for someone who knows what they are doing.

I dont think that $25 minus the cut could ever be okay for 1700 words however expert you are. But if I read the request wrong and it was really $150 then I apologise! I just saw the price and the word count. It was about real estate.

Amen, sister. I feel your pain. I think a lot of people do.

All I can say is that I've seen the result of this stuff, and it's no bueno. And as Google continues to penalize the junk content, it just increases real expert rates. Maybe one day people will learn.
