Hey there Commandercast faithful! In my attempt to keep the columns rolling while we recruit and work with applying writers, I’m back again to climb atop my soap box and preach the good word of Commander!

 

“If you aren’t making everyone hate you, you’re doing it wrong”.

(Of course SCG pays well, so if I ever got offered the chance to write again I’d snap it up in a heartbeat).

 

After I done I realized just how easy it was to slide in and write the article. It was an established brand. They had a formula they could give the writers and take their pick based on who could produce the best content from it. Most importantly, they could alternate writers and still have a consistent product.
