Zack & Nest CEs

Postby shushame » Tue Sep 04, 2012 11:05 am

I had a terrible time with Nest CEs on a power trip. Switched to writing for Zacks and was going FABULOUS. No rewrites... now all of a sudden this week its like writing for Nest again! I'm abandoning ridiculous, no topic knowledge, 600 word rewrites. I haven't changed my writing style in the last week. Maybe a Nest CE moved to Zacks. Sigh.

Anyone else having problems with Biz & Finance CEs?

No, not really. I stick to human resources topics, though. I've had problems with Nest in the past. It's full of holier-than-though mothers who think they know everything about how to budget for a husband's mid-life crisis or some other related shit. The rewrites I do get are reasonable, but way too long to bother with. Luckily, dupe check is plentiful at the moment.

I could have wrote that post! Nest CEs are the shittiest. I got a rejection (which was upheld) because the CE didn't know what the fuck he/she was talking about and got offended that I told them they were wrong. I'm actually pretty sure that same CE was fucking with me continuously after that. I have no idea what their fucking problem is, but I stopped picking up those articles. I've been lucky with Zacks so far and AZ Central hasn't been noticeably bad. But FUCK Nest CEs.

I was doing fine with Zacks too. This last week has just been killer. I'm wondering if its time to change my pseudonym and bio. Maybe I pissed someone off. :(

I haven't written for The Nest in a long time, but I remember it was hit or miss. Some went through with no problem but others had some crazy rewrites. Nothing in between.

Funny thing is, I abandoned the stupid rewrites, put them on Constant Content and they sold quickly. Ha!

I got a nice rejection today. LOL. I actually did the small rewrite. Sent it back. Got a rejection with a note that the CE had checked with Eve before rejecting and she was told to reject based on a lower word count and "thin content"... so why didn't you send it back for a rewrite with the reason of "thin content."

SMH. It was actually one of my more decent articles. Oh well... Constant Content will like it. :)

All I could hear in my head was "No $25 for you!" ala Seinfeld soup guy....
