That is great Debbie... I sort of find the contracts on elance to be too consuming..in the sense that the time is too short for a very large job... But it is great if your schedule is more free and you can handle 1 contract.
Julie: that really depends on how often and extensively you bid for jobs.

Debbie: did you start off bidding writing jobs? or did you do something like data entry first, build your profile and then go on to writing? I noticed that I didnt get many bids just coz I didnt have an established profile with elance... and the ones who were willing to hire wanted 5-7 articles a day..that is tough for me coz I got a kid and all...what can I do to get something less extensive than that?

Hi Debbie: I've just started on Elance. I have not been very persistent but how long did it take for you to land your first job? I'm just curious. I have heard so many mixed stories. Congrats on finding a great job through them!

I work for Elance, and enjoy it a lot. It takes some persistence to land a job, but at least it's free to bid. I'm editing a novel for my current client--a two-month job that I'm loving.

Elance is basically a freelance hub where people post jobs and you could bid for the ones that interest you. Textbroker is a writing site where you pick up small writing assignments as and when you go. Its not too much but its a good start. You work on your schedule and I like that...

Hi Aysha! No, I have never heard of them..I will have to look into those. Thank you!

Thanks for the warm welcome, Genny!

Hi Debra...welcome. Have you considered checking out sites like elance and textbroker to start off freelance writing from home?
Comment by Debra Leluga on October 29, 2010 at 12:08am
Hi everyone! Just joined the group and I hope to get to know many of you..as you all do, I have a passion for writing and hope to one day be able to freelance from home. For now though, because I have a full-time account management job, I fulfill my writing craving in the evening by blogging and writing poetry.

Good News today! I have been asked my my local paper to be a monthly columnist. You gotta start somewhere right? If you haven't already, I would encourage many of you to contact your local paper and ask if they have "Guest Columnists." In my case, it lead to more. I'm loving all of the blogs I'm reading today and following all! Thanks! Julie
