  1. I was going to apply to the “Factoid and Trivia Writers” position, but when I Googled the company (AHN-All Headline News) I found that they had been sued by AP for plagerism and I saw some complaints from former writers saying they were never paid for their work and often received checks that bounced. Does anyone know about this?

  2. Wow, Deb, what a great start for the year – lots and lots of early leads! Thanks so much.

  3. I looked a little more into the Experts 123 and am not sure they pay well. Can’t find anything to prove it, but their “top expert’s” answers are full of grammatical errors on the few entries I pulled up. Given that, I applied just to see what would happen. I was accepted immediately and told to answer questions that I knew the answer to and there is no offer of pay anywhere.

  4. Now to the question about new slates. I have a tendency to agree to do most anything on a personal and professional basis. Even if I’m swamped, I’ll agree to babysit at the last minute, take on that additional last minute assignment, make an extra run for one of the other moms in the high school car pool because they have plans, etc.

    I made a promise to myself that this year always saying YES ends. Last week, I was offered a writing job and was told I would need to clear my slate for a few hours for a teleconference. I was only give a day’s notice, so I stayed up late the night prior to the phone conference to get that day’s work done to focus on this conference and new writing job. The person then never called and never again emailed me. Worse, this is the second time the guy has done that. I was supposed to have this same meeting back in October and it never happened. If I get another email telling me to drop everything for this meeting, I’m going to say no.

    I also have a neighbor who takes frequent trips and ask me to watch her cat for her. Not a big deal. However, a few months ago, the cat was diagnosed with irritable bowel syndrome and put on a special diet requiring the cat to be fed canned food twice a day and dry food twice a day. So she insists that I keep that schedule and drop by four times a day. Plus, the cat has to have it’s litter box changed twice a day or he’ll go on the floor.

    She lives a mile away and I hate driving that short distance, so I usually walk it. The walk eats up a lot of my schedule. I wouldn’t mind helping out, but four times a day is a little much. I haven’t figured out how to say no yet, but I’m determined that this is the year that starts. Either she leaves a car for me to use so that I’m not putting the mileage on my car and using up my gas or she’ll have to find another option.

  5. Re; Temporary Proofreaders Dover NH

    From the job posting:
    “(Please note, this is not a freelance opportunity.)”

    I applied to this company about a year ago, and they seem to prefer local candidates.

  6. The breath magazine one is filled she used two other bloggers to cover it and has no money for bloggers at this time

    • Thanks for the heads up Rebecca. I was excited about that one, but it’s OK. I’m just sorry I didn’t read your comment before sending them some info.

      Oh well. Maybe next time :-)

  7. Clean slate means be a better writer, learn more action verbs, proof my work better or take the time to really check my work before submission and realize I am a lucky writer!

  8. Clean slate? My slate’s been full since the end of November :)

    Let’s see…we have the writing competition going on over at Complete Writing Solutions, helping give some New Year’s cash to contestants who compete (head on over if you haven’t yet).

    We launched our speculative fiction e-zine Marginal Boundaries today, with our debut issue out on March 31st.

    I’m in the middle of a content-writing tracking program over at the main website to shine a light on the pros and cons of writing for content sites. So far I’ve been averaging over 60 dollars an hour with zero re-writes (fingers crossed that I can keep it up for the entire month).

    On top of that I have other contracts, my final Bulgarian language lesson in mid-January, a ski trip to Bansko this week for 4 days, and I’m booked solid with projects until the end of March!!!

    Full slate would be the more appropriate term, I believe :)
