“Will write for word mills”

MediaShift interviews several writers who freelance for word mills like Demand Studios and Seed. The premise of Writers explain what it’s like toiling on the content farm is that we’ll all be working for them someday, so why not show you how the sausage is made. In fact, if there comes a time when we’re all working for them, they’ll probably be much different than they are today. Several writers ask not to be named, which MediaShift allows even while letting them spit on the hand that feeds them. The comments on the piece contain some sharpening of those in the story.
