Hi guys, I need some advice here.
I’ve got a buyer who is ‘writing’ these long rambling blogs and hires me to edit them. Her English is not very good, so the sentences are sometimes horrifying and give me headaches. It is more a ‘rewrite’ than an edit.
Recently, the blogs got longer and longer. At first, it was about 2000 words, then 4000 words, and then, the one I got today: a whopping 5200 words.
I jumped from asking $35 per blog at first to $75 when we hit 4000 words. Today I quoted $120 (which, by the way, I still think is too little, considering the headache I am going to have to try to make some sense out of 5000 word’s worth of terrible writing.)
The buyer accepted my offer - but added a condition.
I must ‘revise’ an earlier blog.
Now, she never asks for revisions, although I offer them. She is a repeat buyer, but I’ve been thinking recently that perhaps our journey together has been going on long enough.
What should I do? I haven’t seen the task yet, but should I revise the earlier blog (which she accepted AND wrote a glowing review for)?
I feel this is a bullying technique and a way to ‘punish’ me for quoting more in this round.
Ideally, I should refuse, as the previous order has long come and gone, and a revision at this stage warrants a separate order.
