After I read the article I went back and counted the ads on the page. Twelve. Someone got paid to make them, right? A page designer got paid to place them? At the very top, before the article even gets started, a Google ad for freelance writers and a link for free grants for writers.I don't suppose I'm going to buy the leggings or go to the free grants websites, but it shows me SOMEone is thinking about money and is using writing as platform to pursue it. But that doesn't change the fact most of the writers are crying about how little money they're being paid nowadays and wondering if the internet is a good thing. And what it looks like is a case of asking 'How can a hooker make a decent living with all of the freebies walking the streets?' So the answer is - the internet is a good thing for writers. It'll force them to get really, really good. Right? -blue***"Shouldn't at least one of the ones complaining about money visit the links announcing "Freelance Writers Needed"?"Probably. Or is that link just a Google scam?"
Once again, Blue, I agree. Used to be writers had to compete for connections. Increasingly, they just have to compete.
We agree on lots of things, Frank. And if you'd just fix those political leanings of yours, well ...-blue
Funny, Blue - and I'm not making this up - I was just thinking the same about you this very morning. (Actually, given my libertarian leanings, I suspect we may agree on a lot politically, as well. Just not everything.)
