It's happened again. I found yet another pointless, useless freelance 'job-board' filled with silly writers lining up to be paid 50 cents an article. This one is called 'webmaster-talk.com'. There are plenty of webmasters there offering plenty of writing jobs. NONE of them are paying anything worth checking out.
The only reason webmasters and article marketers think they only need to pay these really low rates is because those 'writers' are STUPID enough to accept those rates in the first place! Stop it!
Accepting ridiculously low rates like this not only hurts you and your income, but it hurts the entire writing market as well. You honestly wouldn't spend an entire day at your paid day-job only to earn $2, so why would you do it as a writer? You'd make more money flipping burgers at McDonalds.
If you're ever tempted to accept a writing job like this, grab a shovel, dig out your self-respect from wherever you buried it and stand firm that you want more money than slave-labor pay for all that time and effort. Eventually these sharks will figure out that they have to pay FAIRLY for our time and our work and everyone benefits.
If you're still interested in checking out this pointless "job site" for yourself, it's here:
