I got an email today about someone offering me BMR work. The pay was .40 for a 150 word article.

The guy said he was going to give me ..drumroll please.... $20.00 for doing 50 articles.

I didn't want to respond by I kindly said no thank you I don't work for pennies, I am a citizen of the United States and here we work for dollars, and that is below minimum wage.

He responded : But I give you lots of work everyday.

I'm not replying. What a jack hole.

Hahahahahahahahahahah

Playing hardball? Fine. I'll throw in the contact info for a guy offering $1 an article. But that's my final offer! Seriously. I can't share ALL my best gigs. ;)

I received an invite on Elance today for articles. It was in my general niche and the invite sounded reasonable until I read the final paragraph. It was for 50 cents per 500 word article.

Oh please oh please let me sign up for that! I mean really. I think the fee I pay Elance for extra bids is more per bid than what he is paying per article.

Wow, that is really insulting. I can't believe some people are posting such low paying gigs. I'm not even one of those people that are particularly picky with lower payments but 50 cents for a 500-word article is awful! :(

Should be titled "How to insult writers" This is just down right pitiful. Especially the guy that says but I give you work everyday...That equates to lots o pennies. No gracias...
