  Old  Wide range of bids for writing work

Found an interesting site that functions as a clearing house for web development and web design work. Interesting to see what I thought was a fairly wide range of bids for writing work. Insightful.

What's the point of the thread? If you want to post random nonsensical comments, join Tumblr, Twitter or WordPress instead.

Libby, it would be great to actually know which website you are referring to...

Here's the link: http://www.freelancerin.com/jobs/projects/ You'll see all the categories of jobs that can be bid on at the bottom of the page. I've been trying to get a feel for types of writing I can do and fair pricing for it.

It looks like an interesting website for freelancers (and service buyers as well). Have you messed around with the website? What differs it from other popular freelance websites like Elance and Freelancer.com?

I'd be cautious as this site is brand new - just registered in September. They may be fine and end up as one of the top sites some day but right now, to me, they are too new to trust. I don't see any reviews of them anywhere.

I would rather put effort into a reputable source like elance.com, then some random site called "freelancerin.com" that was only created months ago. There are no reviews for it out there either. Looks like a waste of time.

I agree with the feedback. (The poor quaility of the writing on the site struck me, but I found the range of bids to be interesting.) I'm serious about pursuing content writing, and I'm at the very, very beginning of figuring out the smart way to go about it. Thanks for the endorsements of the other sites.

Good luck then. One of the advantages of using new freelance website is that there will usually be less service providers (bidders) you have to compete with, so you will more easily get jobs there.

That's an INTERESTING perspective that could only come through experience. I would never have considered looking at it that way, but it makes sense. Getting decent experience under my belt is my current focus. Thank you SO much for answering so many of my questions.
