The Diminishing of Writing: This is What It’s Reduced To, Boys and Girls

On the back end of wine website Roulé Rogue, a blog for which I’m now writing , this was what the spam said as it laid there waiting for my approval.

Now, understand how ridiculous this is; because, being an author on a blog is a backstage pass, perhaps even having the duty of approving or deleting spam…

Hello Website Owner! I found your website on Google. We offer article writing services at $0.01 per word — that is $5 for a 500 word article! Our writers are U.S. natives and each article is scanned through a premium Copyscape account to ensure uniqueness. We would be more than happy to write your blog, website or mini site’s content! Give us a try! http://www.puttingwritersoutofbusiness.com.

Please understand, I’m not giving you the right Website, because then they’d get publicity… Like I’d do that.

I don’t know what else to say, except, this is just rock bottom for the writing of our English language.

Capitalism working, that’s another thought.

What a tough job market to get into. It reminds me of my one-day-a-week at a winery, while I worked with a franchise cleaning service, until I could get my foot firmly planted in the door. Fortunately, I had a solid background with lots of skill sets, so I integrated quickly. (Plus, I studied like there was no tomorrow to catch up… more hard work.)

Cream will always rise to the top.

I just have to end on a Happy New Year’s note.

Happy New Year to you. I appreciate that you end up here from time to time, and get a view of my journaling dribble.

Oh… One more laugh for the new year. I also found this one:

 It sort of all evens out doesn’t it? Some of us don’t really have to worry about our day jobs from any of these clowns for a while.

    I can completely relate to this post, Jo. I wrote a blog post titled, “The Best of Spam” because the spam I was receiving on my personal blog was so ridiculous that I had to laugh. I still remember when spam was a food! 🙂

  2. Jo Diaz says:

    Yeah, Andrea… food I hated to eat. What were they thinking when that one was invented…

    And, what are they thinking now when they write such a ridiculous jumble of words? Not all translators work in the process, me thinks…

  3. A penny a word! Wow, sign me up.

    It’s it just awful? What kind of skill set must on have… fifth grade?

    That’s insane at 0.01 per word. You would have to write 6 articles just to cover the internet bill (at least). This guy’s writing skills, however, are a simultaneous tribute to clever wordplay and wine:


    Happy New Year.

  6. Jo Diaz says:

    Yup… Insane.

    I also felt it was when I was cleaning houses for three hours and getting $3 per hour, when it was all said and done, too. (That was after they didn’t pay us for meeting time, washing and drying their cleaning rags time, traveling time, and they underestimated how long it would take to clean the house – by hours, and we’d only get 18 percent of the time it was supposed to take, and their deducting for us using their equipment (depreciation), and paying for using their cleaning supplies. Big business had figured out how to enslave their employees… at cents on the dollar, just as these writing companies have done. the bottom line, they can’t write in depth or with any personal understanding… So, go hire them, corporate American. You deserve them.

    I had to go through this experience, so I could understand it and reveal it.

    This piece was a lifejacket that saved me from dwroning.
