...so frustrated...got sucked into a "simple" article...thought it would be easy...?
Did this ever happen to you? Working on an article that I thought would be a simple in and out thing...but, as I did more and more research, I got sucked into something bigger....
Haha oh yes my friend.
Sometimes I go on bidding sprees on Elance just before bed, then wake up and accept a bunch of projects haphazardly. It's a pretty common theme in my life actually; which sucks hehe. I took a gig to write 10 articles in a month promoting The Strand Hotel in Myanmar.. I knew Former-Burma was a hotspot for heroine trade and poverty, but I didn't know that I was literally trying to lead people into an active warzone lol.

I've got a bunch more stories, too. This happens all the time unfortunately. It's hard to be picky in this industry too, at least until you've got an established profile somewhere.
thanks...believe it or not...this helps...back in my "construction" days...I got hit with doing things for free...I thought writing would be different...now I am getting, can you write me some "copy" ....
I have a hub about how research is sometimes the death of a hub. I feel your pain.

This is an example of someone who clearly needs help with his writing skills, yet appears to have an extraordinary belief that the world is full of fools (which perhaps it is?). How many do you believe get sucked into these emailed schemes?Mr Mohammed Hassan. Dear Friend ...

What lesson did you learn post the 2016 election of Trump?This is not a trick question. It is addressed to anyone, no particular political group. I am a conservative and I did not support either candidate. However, I also learned an important lesson. The lesson I learned is that politics is a nasty...
