    Hello guys,

    I have few questions and will be very appreciate if someone can answer in short.

    - how much is necessary to pay for someone to write articles about Basketball for our website?
    - how are you paid, on monthly basis or per article?
    - who choose topics for articles?

    1. At least $75, preferably $100.
    2. Either/or.
    3. Either, but in your case, preferably you to make sure you don't get a thousand pieces of crap.

    Why are you underpricing yourself so much Hondo?
    Consulting fee should be at least $10,000.

    I wonder if he paid Wilson for the rights to use their name in his logo.
