Nobody likes suffering from allergies. For parents, it is especially hard watching your kids battle runny noses, watery eyes, frequent sneezing, and other symptoms. Help your children overcome their allergies with clean air to breathe and a healthy diet.
Home maintenance tasks are few people’s idea of a good time, but tending to them at the appropriate times is vital to making sure your home stands for as long as possible. Here is a brief list of some of the maintenance tasks you need to get in the habit of doing now – before it is too late.
I want to hear from the mom bloggers who are being hired to blog, edit or write. What are you making per hour (or post or assignment)?
I know we're a little shy about sharing what we're making, so maybe give an example like, "Most blogging jobs I know about pay $X per post or about $X per hour." You don't need to give details on who is paying what, but please share details like "$X for a 500 word post" or "$X for 8 posts a month."
So many bloggers, especially newbies, aren't been paid properly for their time and content. I feel if we share what we're making that will give us the power to negotiate better blogging deals for ourselves.
I'm on the hiring/brand end and I would counsel you to definitely charge more than $50. We try to pay $1/word for paid content - the same we pay traditional writers/freelancers for our MomSquad Trendletter, etc. Bloggers can also counsel brands. For that you might consider an hourly rate, e.g., $75-$100/hour, as a starting point for a discussion. I've also seen brands pay honorariums for an extended period of blogger counsel/engagement. At the same time, we work with bloggers in an editorial capacity, and when bloggers cover something as "news" or write a product review we are careful not to pay - we don't want to bias the blogger's view/review.
You bet Jennifer. You may not always get it, but I would start there and see where it goes. I do think $50 for 300 words is too low. Feel free to stay in touch. We use freelance contributors to our MomSquad Trendletter (you can view past issues on the MomSquad page on our site www.360publicrelations.com) from time to time.
I get paid $45/hr. to "ghost write" a blog for one of my clients...it is pretty simple though, she provides me with the basic blog and I just edit it and post it...make it look pretty...lol...I thought that was decent...??
omg! so i feel like a low-baller now. i work freelance for a writing company here in the Philippines which gives not even half of what you were telling here. We do web content writing. But so far, i have not been really that active with them anymore, since i do paid posts. lol. plus, im currently working out a gig for a magazine here..
like what dominique said, where do you get such gigs? lol
This was a big question for me! OMG I feel so stupid and used. I wrote for a website for about a year. I had to have 3-4 articles per week. I was paid monthly..$200...what a chump I am. Well I can't blame anyone but myself, I should have done my research!
