    Freelancers Bureau

    I think there should be a Freelancer's Bureau governing independent contractors and content giggers online. How do younpritect an idea? When does pitching a gig turn into you brainstorming for predatory strangers for free? Granted there is no telling how many black hat ways the web has of...

    Sample writing scams

    Wiw do I hate getting worked over for a sample scam. I answered an ad on Craig's list to summarize a couple of book chapters. I realize now this was just a way of getting someone to write a better book for him. The quality of the source material was awful. I am pretty sure some guy hanging...

    I worry about the black hat or gray hat methods that people are willing to use to get ahead in domaining. Is it a concern for anyone else that so much technology is becoming available to scrape and spin our products into profit for third parties?

    Content Writing Ombudsman

    I wonder if us giggers need an industry ombudsman? PayPal can't do it and every escrow section still answers to the house. I never was able to make money with Flippa and according to their central concept I should have. Yet I see a lot of people getting steamrolled into underpricing their...

    Salary Negotiable

    Wow do I hate to see this in a content gig. At the very least there should be a range. The N word always makes me feel like the client is just taking a survey to ratchet everyone down to the bottom dollar.

If I...
