Wasted Money on Article Writing

Ever felt like you have wasted money on article writing services? Ever got that sick feeling after you receive the articles that you have paid for and realised that some how they are just not up to mark?

 I have had quite a few experiences of hiring article writers to write articles for me, often paying them a range of US$2.50 to US$5.00 for a 500 word article.  When the article comes back, it is just not up to mark and by looking through the article, it is quite obvious that the person has both a poor command of the language as well as the topic that he or she is writing about.

So the file sits in my mailbox and as hard as I want to touch up the article and re-write portions of it (so that it is suitable for publication on any of my sites), I just can't bring myself to do it.  This is because the article is so badly written that I might as well start writing a fresh piece right from scratch!

I figured that I have wasted at least US$10 to US$15 dollars on lousy article writers.  At the same time, I have also had good articles written for me so I shall not go so far to conclude that all article writers are bad.  It is just so sad to know that there are these articles that I have paid money for and which I can't use at all.

Anyone has similar experiences to share?

Freelance Article Writers

From time to time, I have employed some freelance article writers to take the load off writing.  Sometimes, I have a general idea of what I want to write so I just drop the idea to a freelance article writer who will write the article for a small sum for me.  Of course, I will read through the article to see that it is what I have in mind and only publish it if it is of a certain standard.

Below is a sample of a 500 word article that I got a freelance article writer to write for me for a fee of US$2.50.  Is it money well spent?  You decide.


1.  Saving for Retirement [List a few practical steps people can start saving for retirement]

Save to Secure Your Retirement Now!
Growing old gives you the idea that nothing is permanent so you always want to do your best now that you are still capable of doing many things and your strength is still at its peak. It is always better to invest and save early so that you will have your fruitful years more secure and happy. Before you retire, it is better to make a good saving. It is possible through doing few practical things. It doesn’t matter if you are a professional or just doing a blue collar job. If you have a daily income, you can save each day few cents or a portion of your income in a safe place or better open a bank account in your place to make it secure or free from theft. It may be too little but always remember that big things from small things. Later on your money will grow with interest in a bank so it is more practical to save it in a bank. You can also save more when you avoid buying the things that is not your needs and are not in your grocery list each time you shop for your home supplies. Minimize a little your luxurious lifestyle and try to discipline yourself not to be tempted with spending more money just for leisure. The money that you saved from it will be used to be added for your savings. No matter how little it is, you can always value it for it will be a great help in the near future. Another, do not overspend yourself and family for expensive and special foods yet these foods are not nutritious and full of carcinogenic ingredients. Be pro-vegetables and fruits as well as other organic healthy foods. These are cheaper and money savvy foods.

You will see how it gives you a great saving for your food budget. It also gives you more savings in buying just few medicines because you are healthy as well as your family because of your healthy eating habit and well-balanced life. This is maybe too simple yet often neglected by others. If you are drinking alcohol, just drink moderately, instead of excessive drinking then you will use the remaining money to be kept for future use. You will enjoy life without sacrificing the things you are doing. Of course it is hard o deprive yourself of everything, this time you will just do things in moderation and the money you are about to spend recklessly better deposit it in the bank instead of just keeping it in your pocket, for you might think of spending it each time you saw it there. Be practical to save your money whenever it is possible because you don’t know what kind of future awaits you after you retire in your service. Even if you have too little money left each time you get your salary, always make it a habit to secure something as a saving for your retirement. Retirement is a stage in your life that you will face many physiological changes in your body including your health and strength. You need Medicare, health support, food supplements, and multi-vitamins to sustain your body. It will be the beginning of declining memory and strength, which you used to have during your youthful days. Thus, it’s time to use the retirement resources that you invest before your old age and of course your savings are included when that time will come. Save each time you can! Start it now!
