Essay writing services that help students cheat: would you be proud of a degree earned this way?

These cheating essay writing services people are so, so sneaky … I thought I could smell them when they email me offering “guest posts,” but I fell for this one who did actually write more or less what I suggested he do.

Cheating at college by buying written essaysThree things rang an alarm bell once the article arrived: one, a sub-heading wasn’t quite correct English; two, his bio at the end was incomplete, terminating in mid-sentence; and three, there was an embedded link. When I clicked the link, Microsoft warned me that it was suspicious. But I was nosy, and getting angry by this point. I avoided clicking on the link, but typed it into Chrome.

Guess what? I found myself on the most blatant cheating “essay writing services” site I’ve ever seen

Writing essays: what can we learn from nature?

Here’s a question I was asked recently by a student, that really made me think: what can we write about of what we learn from nature? This was for an essay she was about to write.

The business world seems to claw at nature to make its commercial points.

In fact, how many of us still can take the time to look around us and absorb the lessons nature teaches us, especially when our heads are mainly buried in electronic devices while sat in antiseptic urban homes and offices? [Read more…]

Spam, assignment writing services and other crap: trying or trivial?

Do you ever get spammed by covert assignment writing services and other shady outfits writing to you about what they can do that your customers will love, and you know perfectly well they haven’t even grasped what your business is all about?

Before you start spamming English language writing sites, learn grammar and how to ****ing spell.

Do you sigh and hit the delete key patiently, feeling sorry for these poor lambs who are struggling to get ahead and do not yet understand that a) spamming is a sin and b) spamming and getting their facts wrong is an even greater sin?

Or do you spit fur and feathers and rant about how people in business who can’t be bothered to do their homework should have been sterilised at birth?

Why academic writing is soooo boring – but needn’t be

Please welcome freelance content writer Jessica Freeman from Sydney, Australia, who shares her thoughts on why academic writing has become so boring to read … plus some ways in which to make it more reader-friendly. Over to Jessica…

Academic writing exists only to share knowledge and ideas. Sadly, we have created a culture where students are trained to create sterile and clinical documents. Academic work tends to be very technical, and students are afraid to add a little flair or entertainment value through fear of losing marks when they are graded.

Academic writing has its own unique structure, and writers are not penalized for being boring.

Good writing skills are not about being snotty

Many people – especially among some teenagers attending high school – think it’s not “cool” to worry too much about good grammar, spelling, punctuation, syntax and so-on.

Now, they may be right. Stuff like that doesn’t matter if you see yourself always in a low-paid, boring job … maybe chasing dreams in the music business (but what happens when you’re older!) … or hugging trees in a valid but unlikely-to-be-long-term career that will pay your bills and help you bring up a family.
