    I just wanted to briefly point out that on three occasions now I have either responded to, and/or have been requested to, write articles for people on this forum. The results thus far you ask? Absolute flakes.

    I won't name names and I won't report people or bash their iTrader etc, however, as a common courtesy when you are requesting the service of someone on a deadline related inquiry such as article writing, at the VERY least respect your OWN deadline to submit topics to the writer or approve their samples for further business.

    Speaking of samples, I'm also done doing those as well. I see that "sample trolls" will post requesting a writer under different usernames each day get 5 sample responders and throw them up as articles...not cool. Look, I type and speak beyond proper English and if you can't tell that by corrsponding with me or having me point you to various websites I have written the content for well then either YOU don't write proper English, or you just want me to write for free. Both bad for business.

    So I will ask ONCE AGAIN, if those of you that have requested to have me write would still like anything done, you have my email so at least try to respond in a timely fashion. I am available to write from 6:00pm pacific to 1:00am pacific time, probably the equivalent of 20 articles in that time span. The issue is that if you can't have the topics to me at least by 5:45pm, I'm making other plans for the night, you have all day to send me that mess so get to it. I don't know the programs to re-write or copy or whatever scanners it is my work has to pass, but it won't matter because I write them all fresh and researched myself.

    Alternatively, if you would just like to tell me how I can make money from being a writer and not have to deal with flakes, those messages are welcome too. :D I have made an offer to someone to become their exclusive writer for content and they expressed a positive confirmation...then....ghost...complete flake.

    I apologize if my rant is out of line, or in the wrong section, etc. I haven't made enough posts to really know where to put something like this.

    ps. I find that this post is probably long enough for you "sample trolls" to recognize I have English skills so find new excuses for why you need a sample each and every day.

    BTW, my post was 426 words, so let's see how long it takes for someone to add their keywords and Author Box and use it as an article about "The Pitfalls of Article Writing" :buttkick:

    ROFL that last post was too funny. I do have to admit I understand where you're coming from on the flakes. I both try to outsource and ghost writer. It can be so frustrating at times. I hope things look up for you.

    Me too. It all depends on the price per article really.

    Please PM me cadkins45 when you have the time, with regards to this.

    With your writing the first place you should go to is constant-content - seriously. You can make at least $12 per article and in some cases a lot more. If you want pointers or advice send me a pm and I'll gladly help.

    Stop The Press! This just in, we have an update! Flake number 4 has just been located and hit me with the single contact, "i need a sample" to which I did and then heard nothing...finished with article writing guys and gals, don't contact anymore, you can close this thread as well. If someone needs longer, technical writing (especially with regard to financial matters) you can contact me if the thread is still up.

    OP-

    I feel your pain! It is really becoming a struggle to fucking find people who are serious and will write you articles on time.

    I think making the money is easy once you find the good dedicated rewriters. Otherwise, write them as your own.

    I always write that you must speak English well and they all reply back saying "i writ ingles very good and am interessted in ur post."

    HELL NAW!

    HAHAHA that's funny. The bad part is that I am the one offering to do the writing, I have the individuals who WANT me to write flaking on me. Not giving me topics, ALWAYS asking for samples when they already know I am more proficient in the English language than Noah Webster and George and Charles Merriam combined. I don't need writers, I AM the writer and I am getting flaked on.

    "wud ya mean I dndt snd tha tpic on tymee"?!? <---- but they want samples of MY proper English....I think a single cell from the Andromeda Galaxy can speak better English than the requester.

    At any rate, CHEERS to those actually giving me great advice, I have learned a lot lately.

    Why don't you try it where people have to pay upfront and then you produce the article in 2-3 days? That way, you have been paid.

    Or - only give posters who have a bit of a good reputation the samples.
