I speak English, or at least what passes for "native" English in my country.
But I'm just too lazy to learn how to write an article in "proper" English. I know you Americans are a bunch of bleeding-heart liberals who want to help the downtrodden of the world so would a few of you please rewrite my crappy article for me so I can then post it as my own?
You see, someone told me that I could make tons of money on your website, if enough people clicked on my article and even more if they read one of the advertisements in the article.
Come on now! You know you want to help us poor people from parts of the world you have never even visited.
So, please! Do my job for me and rewrite my article!
Don, I am sorry to tell you this but your level of English is really not up to Hubpages standards. I think they have good remedial English schools there in Florida for native Americans that have never learned English.
If you are too busy tooling around in your RV and writing books though, there are English courses you can take on the internet. Many of them are, shall we say, less than adequate? It is an option if you want to write on Wikipedia or write for Buzzfeed.
As far as making money, I have heard that people in your country require at least 6 months to be approved by Google Adsense. Do not expect to make any money here in the meantime.
Best of luck anyway!
(And by the way thanks for chiming in. I am sure theraggededge will appreciate this since she is the person who tries to help so many newbies, and is so often abused for it.)
Dr.Mark? So the best you have is a personal attack?
The thing is, I am comfortable with my writing skills and I am aware of yours.
Thank You for showing your true colors on a subject that's an ongoing irritation for many of us that enjoy reading our fellow Hubber's works.
And please, make sure to post your article so I, or one of the many other bleeding heart liberals on the site, can, in fact, rewrite your article for you from scratch so that you can then take complete credit for it. However, as it is unlikely you can make any money from a single article, I think the best thing to do would let us write a whole bunch of articles for you to post as your own and keep churning them out until you reach your desired income level. Thanks for the opportunity, Don!
Cruel, but funny.
It's a bit of a tsunami at the moment, isn't it?
Again, Sorry, but I guess one person's banana is another's Plantain?
I thought it was a nice comedic relief for me, in my uneducated way.
I guess I'll have to give my degree in Engineering as well as the one in Business back??
Oh, and I should write a disclaimer about my 3 years of study of American and British Literature?
These things do seem to come in waves. I think you mentioned advertising at one point, but I wonder if there is not some secret forum on "How to Make a Million Bucks on the Internet"?
You really need to change your profile pic to that of an attractive young female, say you're from some random place in the States and then, nobody will be able to tell from your writing that your English isn't "proper."
Ya'all folks got the cray cray. (which I like, but I'm much crazier than yous)
In order to get my early hubs published I had to Americanize my UK English. The best piece of advice I was given was to download a free version of grammarly. Other than that, without a link to your unpublished hub, sorry, there's little more advice I can give.
I think you may have missed the undertones of sarcasm Liz, in Don's opening post.
It is a shame, but we do have to change what we learned locally to what is the "most preferred" in the marketplace.
The first thing I had to change was my "Southernisms". I took 3 years of survey courses on American literature as well as British literature.
It was tough, and my professors were unforgiving, but I loved those classes and writing assignments.
You see, I studied, practiced, and I learned; unlike what we see placed in front of us by these persistent beggars. I'm not talking about the occasional cry for help, but the ones that think they can ride on other people's backs over and over.
Dr.Mark - No,I should apologize.
I think I'm going through a caffeine-induced phase of "manopause"?
I've been cleaning up several thousand old emails that were in a Google category called "Updates"???
I never saw this before, but it had stuff from back to 5 years back. And, I'm too much of a coward to just press the "delete all" button.
An insane day, so I made one of my sarcastic pronouncements for the world to read.
Yes, I know, this is a tide that cannot be held back, these constant requests, but they're eating up my time, which we never have enough of!
Have Great Day, everyone!
I'll be down at the local Tiki Bar!
No problem. I think I need to get my satire writing degree before I mess around with this anymore!!
The worst part is I am not into using smiley face emoticons, LOL or ROFL. Good thing I never send text messages on the phone.
(Well, except to my dogs. They always understand my weird sense of humor.)
Had much entertainment reading these posts.
If somebody wants real help, he should post a link to the article.
And, mind you, nobody will rewrite an article for you unless you employ him and pay him. One can only suggest some improvements to it. That's all. (BTW, I will never work for somebody even if he pays. I am only a hobby writer).
