Quote of the Day: Nobody can be successful unless he loves his work.
Good morning. Anne poses a question today:
I’m sure most of you have more experience as freelancers, so I’ll ask this esteemed community my question: What is the story with these web article writing jobs?
I am finding jobs where the client wants 20 articles written in five days, at 500 words each, and they only pay one measly dollar per article. Is this a joke? I can’t even type 500 words for a dollar, much less compose something grammatical and that will sell for the client.
I understand these articles are supposed to add content to websites and increase traffic by stacking keywords, thereby moving the page up in a Google search. But who does these articles? I think who ever agrees to write 500 words for a dollar is bringing down the pay for all freelance writers.
So what do you think? Is there some secret trick to writing a 500 word article for a dollar?”

That’s all for today. Have a good day!
