Hey all!

Just thought I'd give you a heads up that Ryan is looking to hire writers for his blog. Check this page for details. [img]smileys/smiley1.gif[/img]

Ok, did I miss something? He writes:
"Oh ok awesome! I hired a computer science grad student who apparently needed money bad to write 50, 500 word articles for me. Only paid him $60 and he
seems to be almost as much of an expert in the field as I am so hopefully it works out well. I found him on oDesk which is an awesome site if you want
to work from home! Highly competitive though."
Let's see that would work out to $1.20 for each 500 word article. If that is what he pays your better off writing for textbroker and he says it with such glee, and I guess he is right that he sure got a nice deal out of it. Like I said, did I miss something?

I actually contacted him and he is paying that writer $1.00 for 500 words. Asked me what I charge, I told him and also added to remember that you get what you pay for and I never heard from him again. [img]smileys/smiley36.gif[/img]

Okay, I'm glad it wasn't just me. I clicked on it and saw a post bragging about how he's paying a writer virtually nothing. Add another 0 to the amount he's payingand that's a job I *might* consider. But I didn't actually see a job posting or request. I guess Odesk is gonna go the way of GAF and those other sites and have people willing to work for a buck an article.
