Recipe for burnout

I love problogger, but this is customized to attract someone who doesn’t count the cost. Ten blogs a day for a mere thousand dollars a month? That would turn your keyboard into a galley station. Does the company provide the big guard to beat out time with a drum as you row? I always provide pictures (see here) with my posts. It takes more time than you would think.

If you want an example of sane writing rates, consider this as an example:

Sign a 6 month contract for ghost blogging services and you’ll receive an instant savings off the above rates:

  • Two 100 – 200 word posts per week for $320 per month. That’s only $40 each!
  • Three 100 – 200 word posts per week for $500 per month. That’s only $41.67 each!
  • Three 201 – 500 word posts per week for $1,100 per month. That’s $91.67 each!
  • Three 501 – 750 word posts per week for $1,700 per month. That’s $141.67 each!

Ms. Edrich is slightly pricier than my normal service (though my normal service is to blog as a member of the group rather than straight ghostblog), but it is far more rational than what the ad offers. Imagine that you could write five good blogs an hour, day after day. What would be your hourly rate? Not much, and that would be on top of needing another job.

Not worth it!
