About Me

I write a lot and have worked for numerous freelancing sites and all reviews are just to give some insight on my personal view or personal opinion of them.

How I Can Help

Otherwise, I have specialized in SEO writing but with a deeper preference to nutrition/health or business/finance related subjects.


meditating/doing reflection, sight seeing, nature walks etc

I'm still working around my way into a job with any of the ad posts on the site. So far in the last month there have been at least a dozen jobs with most of them asking for a content writer and sadly I could only apply for two posts because the rest of them demanded for a specific level of technical expertise for their tasks. So in other words, the demand for labor is close to 2% but the most impressive thing about it is that it has generous payouts say $10-$100 per hour depending on how tasking a project is...!

Sorry I got a regret notice saying, "We regret to inform you that your application has been declined with reason "Just preferred other applicants." Sounds prejudiced!


Well this my honest feeling about the site and this is my "mind speaking." After knowing fellow writers are as well my editors I got some cold chills running through my system. Then I got a review (the most hilarious review) that the article I had submitted had too many grammatical errors, mind you I ran the doc. Into two different text editors and it came out clean. Actually, I stopped using the text editors! Otherwise, until then "so long HELIUM!"


Sadly, I failed to impress the site after doing some tests. Otherwise, it pays per word i. E.$0.02cents+ and depending on your ratings you could rank among the highest paid writers on the site. So the more you get the better you are!


Sorry, is one of the most low profile sites in terms of sites that are open to hiring freelance writers around the world. I tried applying for the post and for some reason they had an enough writers at the time... actually sometime this year. All I know those qualified are having some good time and the more ratings you get on your assignments the higher the pay (sounds like iwriter). Otherwise, all the luck!


Odesk is a great site if you are looking forwards to earning $1 per 400 word article. However, the issue is not entirely on the whole website but the who's and the how's on how everything is run. I mean, the whole bidding process is HELL. So you could be out there knowing the lowest payment you should get as a professional writer is $8 per 400 word article but... I dare you to say it on this site, you are definitely the most fussy/fussiest and too expensive for some easy task type of bidder. So I say "so long brother!"


Well the fact is that there is no guarantee you will earn $$$ per hour since my greatest frustration was that I could work so hard to see if I could earn, at least $40 in a day but end up with $8-$12. In other words, one may do five assignments under premium level, for works worth $4-$8 per piece then after all that, end up with at least three rejections and two accepted articles. If I were to be asked there is little difference between gambling and working for these people. So hope and pray that the person you write for likes you! I think I've been submitting the best of my works but at some point you can't help but think someone is out to "squash your balls" of writing.

Otherwise, the star rate is because it is very legit!

Zero skills in communication, horrible customer service, UX is really a mess, you don't know when...


Assuming I do 10 projects, they steal more than 2 payments from me. They almost stole 10K USD...
