    but total waste of time. They sent me 5 articles only kinda remotely related to my niche.. Pretty sure its just spun plr.

    Its fine if thats what I thought I was getting and thought was worth $5 but I honestly figured they would write one article on my keyword and spin it 5 times.. or else why bother asking me my keyword.

    If you use them understand what you are getting before you order.

    There is a book I want you to read. Its called "How to win friends and influence people" The author is Carnegie I think.

    Not wanting to overpay for particular services does not make someone cheap. It makes them smart. Are you referring to the thread I posted asking for a list of 40 questions to be answered about one particular town?

    I remembered you when you posted some task that had couldn't have been done in less than 3-4 hours for abysmal price of like $4, and yes you stated a good reason on how you are not being cheap just like that Carnegie guy was probably some cheap guy looking for an excuse of not being called cheap.
    Looking for some cheaper alternatives makes you smart, but being overly cheap and underpaying some people that live of something is maybe smart, but kind of dickish. Just like when some billionaires use cheap force to get rich of them makes them smart, but it also makes them cheap and greedy bastards.

    And, you really think that you would be overpaying someone if you gave them like $5 for 500 word article?

    Looking through some of your posts my friend. You can not afford a domain and hosting right? Maybe do some small low jobs will get you to your billions faster than me and you can give it all away like Bill Gates?

    Which task are you speaking of specifically?

    $5 for a 500 word article when I give you a list of 40 questions you can answer from 3 web pages and I`m giving you 351 jobs is too much yes.

    I don't need someone creative. I need someone who can use google. Obviously you are too good for work.

    I can afford myself a domain, which I bought, but I currently don't know nothing about hostings, so I will not buy it yet, because I want to learn more about website building before buying some hosting for website, which I wouldn't currently use. I saw on godaddy, that they offered me thousands of things that cost about $10 a month each, so that is quite expensive for me now, since I am new to online earning and haven't earned much to have enough funds to budget all of that. I see that you are on this forum from 2009, and maybe even longer doing IM, so I am pretty sure you are doing fine...
    What is the purpose for me to pay some hosting now $10 a month, when I can't monetize it and earn something from it, and when I know really nothing about website, or have no idea what my website should be used for...

    I don't really do IM.. I use what I learn here for real business.. so yes I im real business.. If you had been slightly nicer to me I would give you free hosting as would most other longtime members here. This is what makes BHW a good place.. nice people help the other nice people. When you just flame someone... you arent learning or helping..just posting.

    As for what you and others should do? The first rule. TAKE ACTION. It sounds like a stupid thing for me to say in your ears probably. When i heard it in 2009 it sounded stupid to me also. Its the best advice you will ever get here. If you see a method someone else is sharing or you have an idea. Jump on it right away because it won't be there long.

    yeah, I know I will take actions soon I hope so, everything I earned till now was from article writing, so that kind of struck my nerve when someone ask 500+ word articles for $1. I am just contemplating on what to do next mostly, and I am not sure with what too start first, I am only into online earning for about 5 months, and like 2 months ago I wanted to start learning about app development, then I got over it, and wanted to write for kdp.amazon, then I forgot that and wanted PPD, so I am still thinking what's the best option for me to do. I am still young (18), so I have time to succeed in IM. I
    sn't it better to study something before actually doing it, then just starting to do something I have no idea about, and make thousands of mistakes (even though mistakes are necessary to learn) that could cost me a lot.

    When you saw what I posted your reaction was "this guy is an asshole he wants 500+ words of unique creative content for $2" Yes that would be an asshole request now please examine in reality what I was asking for.

    See these three pages? The answer to every question I need in each article can be found in ten seconds on just these three pages. If you add in the official website of each town we are saying 30 seconds per question 40 questions 1200 seconds is how long? This is like 20 minutes isn't it? Is it more? I am not good with the metric system like you Europeans.

    http://www.yelp.com/search?find_desc=asian&find_loc=revere+ma&ns=1#l=p:MA:Revere::
    [http://www.city-data.com/city/Revere-Massachusetts.html
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Revere,_Massachusetts

    Now take my list of questions insert the name of the city Revere try to answer one question from those three pages. When you give your answer rephrase the question. How is this creative writing assignment worth $5? Where exactly is the creativity? If I looked hard enough I can probably find coder who can make a bot do this :) This is creative copy and pasting.
