    Ok guys... I write for a living, and I have too many smaller orders to keep up with. I am turning work down because I just can't keep up.

    So this is what I am looking to do...

    I want to get 2-3 people lined up that I can shoot work to as it comes.

    Some days, you will get orders for 10 articles, and some days you will get nothing, but I will need each order to be done in a decent time. I would say 8 hours per article, meaning... If I sent you 10 articles, you would have them done in 3.5 days. Get it?

    This isn't a hard rule or anything, but my name is on the line so I can't have any 2-3 day ETA's turn into 2-3 weeks...

    Most stuff will be 400-800 word articles/blog posts on MANY different topics.

    Weight loss, sex, penis pills, abortion, animal sex, puppy dogs, everything you can think of. You will need to be able to research the topic, write effectively, and make sure that your shit is unique (we all copy other content from time to time, but as long as your new shit is UNIQUE, you are ok).

    If you tend to look at other content as an outline for your shit, that is fine, but no fucking rewriting software or anything, it all blows. You can't change a "word"... You have to change an entire sentence by re-wording and re-structuring it...

    I'm getting ahead of myself.

    Anyways, if you are interested, hit me up, and let's talk.

    I will be paying .02 cents per word, which is $2 per 100 words. Each 500 word article is $10, and you shouldn't need more than 30 minutes to write such an article.

    My key points here are that you MUST SPEAK ENGLISH, because I am born and raised in the States, and I can't have my quality go downhill with Indianish grammar (I know Indianish isn't a word).

    And, you MUST be reliable. It will be my ass if work isn't completed, and I will kill your puppy if you screw me over :)

    Anyways, now that I've frightened away all the kids and indians, PM me and let's talk.

    EDIT: I pay via PayPal ONLY!

    And P.S. this may increase to 5-10 article orders PER DAY, so make sure you can handle that IF it happens. :)

    If there are Indians here, surely they will be very mad! :)

    I'm not an Indian though.

    Writing good articles is not just about the "Perfect English" you have. It's about how to get your readers to read the whole things and get them to where they should go... Your targeted site/market.

    That's just my opinion... :)

    bloody shit. I could have provided you with the best content you could have ever get from a writer. but now that you enjoy threatening Indians, please go and fuck yourself with all this bullshit. The US survives because of us Indians.

    And next time I saw you bullshitting, I will come over, fuck you in the ass and gladly fuck you again.

    So stop being paranoid, and simply write, that you are looking for Real Good articles, rather than targeting Indians.

    We are Indians, and treat Our country like our Mother. Get that and you will be lot more successful with your money and Indian brains.

    Namaste.

    Sounds a little gay to me, but we'll leave that for you to decide. Maybe the OP had a bad experience and does not want it to happen again. Maybe the Indian he hired did a horrible job. usually, you get what you pay for. So, instead of going crazy and making yourself look like an ass, either ignore it or try and help him over come his fear of Indian writers. Maybe offer a sample of what you can do, and prove him wrong. But there is no need for your sporadic and juvenile comments.

    From my experience, Indians write pretty well but seem to have a habit of ending verbs with a 't' instead of an 'ed.' Or, they mix up two words like 'their' and 'there.' Or, use 'a' instead of 'an.' Some don't capitalize proper nouns. Some put spaces between the last letter of the sentence and the period or question mark. Some do silly things like 5$ instead of $5. Do you know all the reasons and different situations when to use a , or ; or when to use a :?

    There are many examples I have seen here and can point out to you if you feel otherwise. Indians and outsourcing companies saying the create "quality" writing, and right there in their description, I can see 1-2 errors. If a sentence is worded incorrectly or awkwardly, it will not read right to an American.

    Overall, it is hard to find someone who knows perfect English. It is not that big of a deal if someone prefers to have an American write their work over an Indian. There are many users here going to College in America who can write well, why not use them? Don't take it too personally my friend, things will be alright.

    *P.S. I have also seen some great work by Indians, I'm just pointing out some reasons why he might want a US writer and not to freak out.

    For the truth, I have some bad experience with Indian too (no offense to you Nikhil), but, I have one friend from India, and he did a good job.

    I have no intention to give any jobs to another Indian in this time, so if I have a job, and I want to outsource it, I will give it to my Indian friend for the first time. If he cannot do that, I will rather not to give the job to another Indian. :)

    I dont think American English is the perfect English in this world!!
    If you need quality content, go to constant content like sites and pay $40 for 500 word article.

    Yeah, right.. Indian companies will say they will create quality articles or content.. Did you tested them? And then you hired them because you will get cheap articles from them..

    The attitude of some English folk. Distainful. Most of your customers/clients (if any) would be Indian or non-English in origin a n y w a y. I mean... duh? .

    I bolded the things here that made me laugh. I wouldn't get too upset about it though, you can't expect much manners or sense on a BH forum, or the internet for that single matter.

    How much more narrow-minded can one get?

    We have a saying here in India:

    Translation: A frog lives in a well and thinks that the well is the entire world.

    OK guys, I am back :p
    Well, thanks to those who supported me, and those who didn't.. whatever.

    Anyways, I apologize to all! I never wanted to hijack this thread. I didn't like the way he said that. Though I agree, my mawkish character reflected on this one. :D

    Now, please buddies.. That guy wants some pretty unique content and is paying high enough ($10 an article is indeed awesome). So, let us get back to our works :p

    Though Phre0nBurn, I have made my point already, and I assume you get it.
    And, I am sure others will gladly join me on this one. :p

    Working with Indians, on the contrary, provides you with the brains you never had, on real cheap rates. And, if you dont agree, please get the facts:
    "as many as 12% scientists and 38% doctors in the US are Indians, and in NASA, 36% or almost 4 out of 10 scientists are Indians."

    lol... they want our brain.. they dont want our articles..:D

    Each country have its own good things and bad things. Internet? The internet will not here if the americans did not discovered it.. and many things like that...

    If there was no america, the world will be in war everywhere... america knowingly/unknowingly policing the world...

    So I am also dont want to hurt anyone or country... I like every country like usa, britain, pakistan, iran, cuba, russia, china.... lol.... and many more... Every country have a place in history...

    But, you must understand that the world is not there or here..

    I outsource my works to people in the USA and people in India... So, what is the difference? Nothing, I just want to do my work.. there is no extra requirements etc. in my works.. If USA people do it or Indian people do it, I dont feel any difference on that.

    @NikhilG, you was too angry in your first post....:D

    I guess this guy got some bad experience with Indians.

    Anyway, I have had 2 bad experience from graphic artists who are Indians. They sent me good images when I asked for a sample, but their actual work is... well... substandard (to put it mildly). Imagine something a 10 year old drew... only worse.

    But will I hire an Indian graphic artist in the future? I will think twice to be honest but given the right Indian, I will without hesitation. :D

    now thats like something I call a better way of dealing, with words...

    (I so love the words:
    Versifier - used for Indian God Krishna :p
    Logophillic - lover of words
    and, Me)
