This week's Middle Finger Award comes from a high school pal of mine and fellow freelance writer/editor, Melissa.
Project Description: News Writer Needed
Specific Project Request: Hello,
I run several news websites and I am in need of a writer. This work can be done from home.
I need a writer that can provide 5-10 news articles per day that are about 200 words each.
** Most of these news articles will be business related in nature**
Each article must meet these requirements:
* 200 or more words
* Most of these articles will be rewrites but must pass copyscape
* No Spelling or grammar mistakes
* I will need the articles as early as possible in the day (before noon would be great)
I will pay $2 per 200 word news article - So if you did 10 per day - I would pay $20 per day
I need a writer that can provide a minimum of 5 articles per day.
If you are interested in this job please respond to this ad. I will explain more to people that respond.
So here we have the oh-so-typical one cent (or less) per word content rate with the usual laundry list of requirements. But this one has the added bonus of an "early as possible" daily deadline. As I told Melissa, "Oh boy! Just what I want to do is get up at 6:00 in the morning to earn $20 a day. Yippee!" And Screw THAT indeed!
