Outraged of Swansea

That's my new name for the day, Outraged of Swansea. I've been searching online for writing/blogging jobs. There is an abundance of them, but I'm appalled at how little the majority of them pay. One ad is requesting ten 400-500 word articles a day, for $2 per article. What a bloody cheek. Do they really think any writer with a bit of pride and self-respect is going to accept $20 -about £13.50 in UK money - for writing 4,000-5,000 words per day? That's an insult. To make matters even worse, some would-be employers are offering hourly rates of $2.50, or even $1 per hour. What planet are they on? Grr!

What a bloody cheek to offer that sort of crappy pay
