  1. I certainly wouldn’t discourage anyone from applying for this job, but I wonder why the employer can’t simply come out and say how much they pay per post. They say $10.00 an hour depending on how fast you write. But if each post takes from 20 to 30 minutes, then it would seem that they are paying around $3.00 to $5.00 per post. And if you’re only going to write one post per day in the beginning, the hourly wage is pretty much irrelevant. So why don’t they come right out and give a per post rate? Maybe it’s low, but there’s nothing wrong with that. Every writer, and every blog, has got to start out somewhere. I just can’t help but be suspicious of employers who feel the need to dangle an hourly wage in front of applicants, as if that will increase their pool of more experienced writers. Most experienced freelancers have a pretty good idea how long it will take them to write a 200 word blog post anyway. Maybe this is just my pet peeve. Is anyone else out there tired of employers who start out by posting an hourly rate, only to tip you off later on that they are paying by the piece? It just makes me feel that the employer is somewhat less than honest even if this is far from the case. And I’m sure the decent employers don’t want to give that impression.
    Well, this is a long post. Thanks Deb and Jody for the opportunity to get it off my chest. I’d be interested in what others think.
