1 - I'm an article writer where can I find work
2 - I'm not getting paid enough as an article writer
3 - I'm desperate, I'll work for $5 /article
4 - Where did all the article writing gigs go
And countless variations of the above.
Can I just offer a small word of advice to those who are active or looking to be active as article writers - everything you write on this forum or in any other public place becomes a part of your resume (Curriculum Vitae).
If you post a thread or comment and litter it with spelling/grammatical errors, you're basically saying to people "Don't hire me".
I've seen several 'article writers' in the past few days pop up and basically pull the rug out from under themselves with sloppily constructed comments.
Also, I've had people write to me offering 'professional article writing services' (through places like Elance, Freelancer etc) and their 'offers' have been littered with the same sloppy writing style and grammar.
As an article writer, you can't just 'switch off' when you're posting in forums or blogs, you are in the spotlight and you need to make your words work for you.
It's little wonder the base level for writing commands such a low rate of pay.
I don't mean to be hurtful or disrespectful, but there's a lot you can do to improve your own situation if you'd just be a little more careful about how you present yourselves to prospective customers.
There are many exceptions of course, but I suspect they're not the ones who would be drawn to the title of this thread in the first instance.
