    Is anyone else still writing for Demand Media Studios?

    They've been making a real push to change and "improve" things, but  things have been ridiculous for the past week. Extremely slow editing process and constant requests for rewrites. Just wondering if anyone else has been having more issues than usual with them?

    I have never heard of Demand Media Studios. What kind of writing/pubishing do they do?

      All kinds, but they are now looking for specialists to write in specific areas.

    They're an online publishing company. You may know them better as eHow. Many writers refer to them as DMS. They also include Livingstrong and often get mixed reviews from writers. Basically, they post hundreds of titles and writers can choose which ones to accept.  Some are pretty obscure and way out there, but it's possible to find average topics to write about.

    I personally have no interest in writing for Demand Studios, largely because of the inconsistency of the editors over there (as seems to be the case with many of these content mills). I realize they pay better than many others, but virtually everyone I know who consistently writes for DMS is incessantly venting about what a pain in the ass they are to work with.

    Personally, I prefer to work through Elance, where I find clients have consistent and clear expectations (there are exceptions, of course). It also doesn't hurt that I have some additional control over the amount I get paid, though the downside is the proposal writing, which can delay actually getting to work.

    Before the change I only had 7-8 articles with them and was making $20-$30 a month but they even wanted me to do rewrite on those articles that had been out for years. Then I could never get any new articles published and I would look at some of the trash that they let thru so I dropped them.

    I hadn't heard of this company before a few days ago while I was looking for a site to start writing for. All I read about them were horror stories and complaints.

    I used to write for BrightHub... but, meh.

    I just rejoined them and am writing on gardening projects.  I have written for them on some really technical eHow projects, but that dried up about 2 years ago.  It looks like I have plenty of work to do there now. 

    I haven't had huge problems with editors, only a bump one time.
