I really must have freaked myself out about this editing thing. I wrote two articles this afternoon and nearly had a panic attack when I pressed submit on the second one. I didn't want to return to the homepage and find that I had an edit waiting for me already. I didn't of course. No worries (yet).
Since that job was taking its toll, I decided to go to one of my other jobs. That didn't help. I kept looking at the article requests seeing things like "must be thoroughly researched" and "Please write in formal business speech on [some really complicated law topic]" for guess what? $2.50 a pop... for 400-500 words. Normally I would at least try (maybe not the law article!) but I just couldn't get myself to do it.
I have plenty of ideas of articles I can write and publish on my own, so I think I should stick to that for a little while, doing only minimum amounts of articles at my regular jobs. Only bad part is that those make just a fraction of the $1-$5 I can make for those other suckers. I can make more money on my blog ads than royalties from Triond, but I still like the ability of writing what I want, when I want.
Money? Integrity? Dilemma.
