    Sick of content writers

    So a few days ago I found a content writer at DP and ordered 10 articles from him, the order totaling $40 and articles being 350 words each. He said he would get them done in 48 hours. So I waited 48 hours.... nothing..... another 48 hours pass without any communication so I PM him to see how he is going. He actually "forgot" about the articles so I canceled the order.

    Fed up with DP, I thought I would get someone from NB. I found a suitable article writer and he too told me he would complete the articles in 48 hours. I waited 48 hours and immediately contacted him asking how they were going. 48 hours after the deadline I had not heard back from him so I again canceled the order (don't know what went wrong with this one).

    So now I have wasted 8 days on this project just trying to get some articles and I think I will just sell the domain and get out of it. It has been nothing but trouble since day one. Has anyone else had similar experiences. I know if I picked a higher quality writer I would not have this trouble however for this specific project, I did not have the appropriate funds. But regardless of how much the writer is getting paid they should stick to their word and communicate when necessary.

    Yea I know what you mean. I'm trying to find some more writers at the moment that are reliable and that seems to be hard.

    That's what I thought too

    I am going to write all my own content from now and avoid projects where I have no ability/interest to produce content.

    Thats a good idea, but the problem is that it is time consuming and the required result may not achived.
    I had faced the same problem with my web site designing.

    That's why I am going to start designing my websites all exactly the same, just different colors and each having a unique logo

    I feel sorry for the inconvenience you went through Andrew. However I think here at NB there are many good content writers. I had pm'd you for the job but you had chosen someone else. I think a writer must meet the deadline in my case I try to finish my work before the deadline. A writer must communicate with the client to write according to his requirements. I wish in future you will not go through the same problem. Good Luck for the future projects.
