Halloween is not only a colourful night of fun, frights, sweets and costumes. It is a full-blown industry, with more than $14 billion spent each year on costumes, decorations, party supplies, candy and other paraphernalia.

How did it all get started?

Read about it on my blog, Mayra's Secret Bookcase.

Happy Halloween! :-)

I have the free elance account and signed up for writing/translation. But now I dont know how to switch it to data entry..since my squidoo lens and promotion is taking up time now, I might try figure that out next month or so.

I understand, My very first project was for 100 articles. I wrote 25 a week by doing 5 a day. But I still do that for myself in promoting my own affiliate products, so it wasn't a big deal for me. But yes, I understand your problem. How about choosing jobs that are not so intense, such as data entry..or is writing the only thing you want to do?

Those are the ones I search into..but they ask like 5-10 articles a day..I can do 3-5 rewrites I guess..but not each day..and what if the kid falls sick?Or something comes up? That is what my concern is..

Ther are plenty of smaal jobs, like writing articles, doing rewrites, etc. have you thought about thoses?

@angie: I really should do one like that but got no resources.
@itsangel: that is great! I guess staying persistent with elance helps. I just am troubled by the fact that most of the writing jobs are too huge. I am not sure I can dedicate all my time on 1 contract you know?Since I have only done 1 job, I still have to bid low and see what I can get...

Is anyone here doing the National November Writing Month project? This is my second year. I am still doing edits on last years book, but have sent queries on it returns have been positive. Anyone else?

Hi Debbie
I have been on Elance since May 2008, I did the same thing. I bid lower to earn my first few jobs, to get int he door. I always check the buyers award ration before I buy, if it is less then 50 percent preferably higher, I won't bid on his job.
I just won a long term position that had 50 proposals by sending the buyer a note asking him if he needed anything else from me, etc. this showed I was interested in the job.
He called me, and interviewed me and I won the proposals. When there are a lot of bids, keeping your name out front is the name of the game.

Has anyone put together a freelance resume? I found a couple of examples online, but I think I need a simpler version. Anyone willing to share?
