I was asked to write a few articles for a new HR website. The woman asked me to forward her some info, mainly what I want to be paid.
How do I go about this? I can't exactly quote an hourly rate, since it would be sporadic hours working on each article throughout the day/week. Or can I?
I was thinking it should be as simple as charging per word, but then again this is for a website and the articles will be kept purposely short and concise. A 300 word article at the standard .10/word may seem like an easy $30, but when it involves driving around/calling various people and conducting interviews I'm losing money.
Any ideas about how I should approach this?
