Anyone use peopleperhour.com? ... interested to hear any comments
I've just joined it, funnily enough. I have just made my first bid but haven't done any jobs so too early to tell.
A couple of things I can say, though:
1. The application form/process is fiendishly complicated
2. I really, really don't like the way they expect you to use your real name (rather than a screen name) and a photo of yourself as your avatar. Though a lot of people get round it by not posting a photo at all. I've put a picture of a cat up, which will probably get me into trouble at some point!
Thanks ... Don't really have a problem with real name as from a quick look, people are asking reasonable money rather than the $1 for a weeks worth at some sites.
If I was going to employ someone and pay a decent wage, I don't think I would personally employ someone who had a penname or a picture that wasn't of them, though I do understand concerns about privacy but I suspect real names/pics get better results.
I don't understand the picture thingy. At all. I've sold £££ worth of stuff on eBay and elsewhere and nobody needed my picture - they had my feedback to go by!
Maybe it might be vaguely helpful to have a picture if someone is thinking of hiring a person to work onsite but for remote working? Nah. And most of the jobs on peopleperhour are one-off freelance assignments - it's not as if we're talking a full-time salary with pensions/benefits etc.
I'll have to take a better look at this later, it looks a lot like odesk which I've used in the past. I've used a lot of my work on HubPages as a way to get work on Odesk with much success. I'll keep you posted on whether I join this peopleperhour site and what I think. Thanks for the link!

Just wanted to share this. Someone pinned or "flipped" one of my hubs on Flipboard, a magazine site. So I've had a ton of traffic all morning. I made my own magazine and the traffic magnified even more! (currently 16 visits per minute). Might be worth looking into as an alternative...

A few months ago I posted some exciting news I had. I had been contacted by a celebrity's wife about writing articles for them for magazine publication. (this is the thread about all of that http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/47937 ) We did a lot of corresponding back and forth. She...

Are any of you freelance writers? If so how did you break into the industry and how's it going for you?
