    I've made a couple hundred bucks on there. Though you have to dedicate the time to taking their skills tests and filling out proper proposals in order to get decent offers or be accepted on bids. Message me if you have any other questions.

    And personally, I prefer Odesk.

    I wrote a blurb about the company. Like any cloud platform you are competing with a plethora of other people with like skills. You may get lucky and get hired or your profile may just sit there for a time. I've answered writing ads for Craig's List from around the US. I've landed writing jobs that pay $10, $15 up to $30 per article. I would rather send out my resume than to be placed on a block for hire. Elance has great BBB rating, so it may work for you.

    Yes, the only drawback is that its highly competitive. I haven't had much luck with landing a gig lately, and there are often 20-40 people putting proposals on a single project. It's frustrating that writers from other countries often underbid the price.

    If anyone knows of a place where writers make good $$, pass along the information, please! But if you love writing (like I do), then getting paid any amount is just a bonus to doing what you love.
