Lately I have received a TON of orders for blog posts where the buyer bypasses all five of my mandatory Gig Requirements and only writes something like “Title: summer hairstyles” or “Write about motivation” in every space. Or the latest one wrote “Not interested”. Really?
This is not how my blog writing gig works. The gig requirements are super clear and mentioned in the gig description. The base gig does not include any amount of research. Not so much as a google search. Additionally, I require the buyer’s URL and/or information about their audience so that my writing will match the rest of the site content/blog posts. And I don’t write filler or spammy search engine food.
I’ve had MANY of these lately. This is my second time coming to the forum for advice. Last time, I was advised to cancel the gigs. There were THREE of them then. I only cancelled two. Invested very little time writing the other. That’s just not my style!
Here I am again, looking at a gig where the buyer hasn’t replied to my message for additional information.
How many times can I cancel these gigs before it starts to affect my level 2 status?
