I was browsing around today looking at some of my older articles I have written at a variety of locations, and ended up laughing when I landed on one site in particular.
I left them back several months ago, because the pay was pretty bad for what the article entailed – I had received a pay increase that was worth it awhile back, but a year later still no pay increase again, and it left me with no desire to write for them anymore. The research was costing me more time than actually article writing and it wasn’t worth it.
So I was re-reading some of the articles I wrote, and I came across two new articles posted by someone. I cannot tell if they hired someone new or if they are just asking someone to fill in occasionally. The articles were two weeks apart from each other, but they were so filled with typos, and mistakes that it was difficult for me to read. Plus the website has injected one of those stupid programs that highlights key words and article pop up. Not a fan. At all.
So, for me it was kinda of nice to look back and see that they really haven’t progressed much at all. You can give a site a makeover and call it “all new”, but it surely doesn’t make your articles worth writing. But at least now, they are paying for the quality they are receiving. LOL
Have you ever gone back and looked at articles you have written for a site you no longer work for? Is anyone new there now and what do you think of their writing?
