    I am here to share a bitter/ sweet story with BHW members. the last time i posted a thread here i got flamed for offering $1.00 per 450 word article. i was willing to partner with someone here to be able to provide these articles.

    Now i get payed $5.00 per article, and $8.00 per review article.

    i now have a contract to provide 900+ articles every week for the next 9 months.

    I have been payed 3 times already. totaling $13 500.00 so far

    One thing that really makes me sad is that the same community that helped me to get started online is the same one that i can't give back to, because some people saw the first offer i provided as mediocre, if you asked me i will have told you that you will get payed $5.00 per article just like i did, after proving your writing skills.

    I am now seeking help from oDesk, and giving money to people who can't even write coherent English.
    I pay odesk people $2.00 per article, and i feel this is a waste as most of them are not that good in English

    So I guess they paid you 5 bucks to invent new words like "payed" and write runoff sentences. Also the correct way is "if you ask me" not "if you asked me" . Plus if you are going to bragg in a thread saying how you used to write for 1 dollar and now you are writing for 5 bucks , then you might as well double check your spelling and used correct grammar before saying you are better than people from odesk which in my opinion i think those 2 dollar articles from odesk are better than your 5 dollar articles.

    let me clear something

    English is not my first language, i try as best as i can

    the other thing is i DON'T WRITE THE ARTICLES, I HAVE PEOPLE WHO DO THIS, BUT THEIR ENGLISH IS WORSE THAN MINE.

    Well that is one way to look at this

    The way I see it, OP is able to earn a decent ammount of money with bad grammar. So many native English speakers cant earn shit with writing articles.

    At least give him props for that.

    Congrats on your success. Odesk etc..are good for outsourcing easy stuff. It's been hard to find quality there (at least for me).

    So wait, you want good quality writers at $2 for a 500 word article when people buy it here on BHW for $5 all day by themselves?

    Thats not giving back buddy, that is trying to take advantage.

    I pay writers from here all the time, shit any of you $2 guys that can give me unique, readable, English content at $2 per 500 words...PLEASE PM me.

    I guess if you fulfill the criteria to be a service provider/seller of BHW, nobody gonna flame you for what your price is. But from the aspect of business, competitive pricing doesn't mean you will sell for nickel. It harms other business too. The feeling of belonging to a community lies not always in the giving away...also to cause no harm to other individual :) I hope you understand i am talking about.
    And Congrats on your success.

    My Bad :( I was watching movie and replied the thread :(
    $1 for 450 words article is not realistic. A non native write can write maximum 5000 words working 8 hours a day. That means $11 per day. Too low for a full time writer. Even for the people of third world.

    Autoblogger- i was offering $1.00 when i started, actually i asked for help, and some guys here helped me out, however you get $5.00 per article, and that's the minimum, if you write a 1000 word article you get $25.00 each.

    i will donate to the forum directly,

    TO NEWBIES: I WILL PAY FOR YOUR HOSTING AND DOMAIN PURCAHSE FOR THE WHOLE YEAR. PM ME if you are interested.
