I’m genuinely curious. Mainly due to the fact that this forum in proliferated with new users who are still looking to make their first sale. (Nothing wrong with that. I’m a new seller trying to break into the industry myself.) And I don’t know, something about offering my skills for as low as $5 is quite discouraging. At that point, I might as well work for publications that only offer their writers $1 for every 100 words. That and it seems nigh impossible to differentiate yourself from the competition.
This post is more of a vent than anything, but I’m a bit annoyed by this whole idea. At this point, I might as well work in retail or the food industry.
