I’m really trying to be civil with people who message me. The thing is, at the moment I’m getting so many needy and entitled people that I think I’m going to have to just leave Fiverr for a while.
It’s horrendously depressing. Every day I am getting people placing orders for single 300-word articles sending me details of what 4 or 5 pages they want writing. Then suddenly there is this tangible shock and disdain when I say, “sorry but you have ordered 1 article.” In fact, I even have a buyer at the moment who has replied to me saying, “oh I see, in this case, I’ll probably get you to write the about page as a revision.”
Meanwhile, in my inbox, I’m getting deluged with people asking for my ‘opinion’ on their website and/or business. Following up with such people, they then seem to think that for the sake of a potential $8 sale, I’m going to basically user test their site and tell them what I could do as a copywriter to make it better.
Once again, there is then shock and disdain when I say sorry but no…
I’m actually getting so worn down that it feel like I’m making myself ill. In fact, yeah… Think that’s me done.
