Aren't we (maybe this is geared more towards my age range) technically "Gen Y" or something equally stupid sounding?

Yes, anyone after Gen X is considered Gen Y. Which is a dumb phrase that we got only because we followed the Gen Xers. Although I guess it's better than being a Millenial, which is the generation after us.

I hope the person who came up with that term suffered very painful bowel movements.

I have written for eCopywriters. I do not recommend it.

It's not just that the topics suck. The main problem is turnaround time. I have had articles waiting around for 5+ weeks before approval. And when I emailed to ask, I was given really snippy responses. I mean it's not a treatise on Middle Eastern peace, it's 400 words on car insurance. Wtf.

Anyway. Pay is low, and they assign you a "star" level but apparently from what I've heard, everyone starts out as a 2* unless they need you for a "special" assignment (Gen-X?) and then sometimes they bump you up.

The topics are so uninteresting and awful, that combined with the horrible turnaround time and slow pay, well. I wrote maybe 4 things there, then stopped. I write for a couple places, not just content, and I can deal with not being a "5*" writer. But I know damn well I'm being exploited at 2* and 2 cents a word.

Honestly, textbroker is much better than this.
