You Know What Assume Means

April 4, 2012

In Freelance Online Writing: Not As Fab and Glam, WhiteSockGirl addresses two specific issues in writing that I have not yet mentioned (even though I’ve mentioned quite a few), to wit: A) the problems with “writing” for SEO purposes, with pay so low it’s exploitative, and B) racist assumptions about those who take such jobs.  The follow snippet illustrates what happens when one assumes.

The ignorant so called freelance writer wrote about how good writers, specifically native English writers, were-oh-so-not appreciated. She ranted on about how she and her fellow native English writers have to compete for freelance jobs with ‘people in poverty-stricken countries who will write in chopped-up, half-assed English for less than $1/hour.’
