I disagree Jon, this is not the way it always is,  circumstances, alter case, also a perfectionist can not accept  in their mind , that it  is not perfect, that means that they go to extra trouble not 'CONSIDERING' what they will make, but instead considering what they will give their client.

That is me, the client comes first! I have no problem writing an article in  30 minutes/even 15... But, when I deliver it to
a client, it will be as perfect as I can make it... Money is not always a goal, original perfect conent is!l

BTW: You taught me this!

Perfectionism can lead to inaction! Some people find that they will not do anything because what they do is never perfect enough for them. I know of one talented artist who does no art at all because what he produces is never good enough for him, yet his mother, who (in her own estimation) is not as good as him, sells her work for considerable sums of money. Another person I know finds study stressful because he can never write an essay or produce a piece of work that is good enough for himself, so he does nothing. Perfectionism can be paralysing. I have had to learn this for myself. In my childhood, I hated ironing the tablecloths for my mother because the corners never matched together "perfectly". There was not enough money in the house to buy best quality tablecloths but it's only now that I am older, that I recognise that a clean, ironed tablecloth, even if the ironing creases do not go perfectly along the centre of the cloth, still shows love and care. Now, it just has to be "good enough". Good enough allows me to submit an academic paper to a conference or a journal for consideration. I tell myself it doesn't have to be perfect, just "good enough". Good enough does NOT mean poor quality, it means just what it says, good enough to consider sending it to wherever it needs to go in the knowledge that sufficient time, energy and thought has been applied to ensure a quality product. There is a phrase "the law of diminishing returns" that says that you have to put more and more resources into a good product to make it just a tiny bit better.

Sometimes, we have to accept that good enough is good enough and with the articles from "ineedarticles", the writers have produced quality products for me. I may have to make some tiny changes but the value of what I get is fantastic and I recognise that getting this level of value from writers may mean that there are tiny slips within the article.

You are right (as usual) Miss TBS, ;D

I probably have been told this close to 1000 times, starting with my Mom (Honey), yet try as I may; I still cannot quit anything I start, until I personally think it is perfect~

I have tried, and tried, still cannot quit. That may be why I still have trouble making money on my websites.

Every time I open one, I think 'I need to change the theme', or that ‘AB post needs a link behind it’, etc... This is most annoying, it consumes my day, and with 35+ sites, it drives me a little bit nuts. Moreover, not one is what I would call perfect!

If they were all in WordPress it would be simpler, but most are XSitePro2, and that is an open the site change the site upload the site thing…

Therefore, I am constantly changing something within the sites and making very little. It would be so much better if I could just tell myself that looks pretty good, and leave it alone.

And that's precisely why you wouldn't make any money as a writer for ineedarticles. You need to be fast and good, but you cannot be a perfectionist or you'll go broke.

Hi Jon,
To test the iNeedArticles facility we submitted a request for just one article to be written so we could assess the quality etc for use on our website.
We have now received the completed article and are extremely pleased with both the content and the way in which it has been presented. It is everything we had hoped it would be.
We have now requested another 10 articles - and there will be more to follow.
Great service and great price! - Many thanks

And, if the writer, no matter how good by other metrics, is not a good fit for the service then that writer becomes expensive to support as a square peg in a round hole. A service like this has to run slick as something very slick or it is not economic.

Jon, you are absolutely right in this comment, being a perfectionist and (good enough) plus fast are absolutely two different things...  ;D

Thanks,

I was leaning more toward targeted article request, using keyword, and specifically requested content articles.

Hi John,
Thanks so much for offering the rewrite service!
I wonder if it's possible to build into the system a way to order an entire set of articles to be rewritten all at once rather than doing one at a time? I typically order batches of 15-30 articles and if I could have the entire batch rewritten easily, that would be awesome! I understand that it's possible that a select few articles within a batch may not be quite as well written, so if there was a way to select the articles to be rewritten in a batch with a check box or something, that would be cool. Or possibly, have a tool that allows rewrites for any articles that are 4 stars and above within a batch, therefore encouraging people to review them? Just ideas! It sure would help me.

Perfection costs.. in any industry. It is unrealistic to expect perfection without paying for it. How would you like to pay what say, The Wall Street Journal, pays for perfection? Good comment!
