Good morning fellow keyboard troopers!  A couple of words on today’s postings… I exercised my powers of filtering this weekend, not posting anything where people were paying “7.50 – $15+ per post depending on page rank”, “5.00 per post because that is what everyone else is paying”, or similar such disasters.  While I have enough class not to complain about it on CraigsList, this here be my house and I’m never going to bring in the trash.

For those of you who are thinking – “well, $15.00 per post isn’t too bad if it is short…” make sure you are paying close attention to the “depending on page rank”.  It takes a significant amount of time for any website to build up a page rank, which is a reference to Google page rank.  People who pay based on “quality”, “page rank”, or “hits” without offering some kind of decent base pay are simply just out to screw you.  You don’t need that, my friends – too many jobs out there to worry about the fruit that is so low hanging that it is rotting.
