I created my first writing gigs today. Within an hour, I received this message:
“I really liked your profile, so I thought I would reach out to see if you would be available for an ongoing project. I am a freelancer myself and have too many projects and no time to complete them all. So, I’m looking for someone trustworthy who can help me with three articles per week. The thing is that they’re long list articles of about 6,750 words each. If you’re available for the project, how much would you charge per article? I would provide the list items and no need for you to find images or write intro or conclusion, it would just be writing descriptions for the list items. Let me know what you think!”
I was skeptical because my profile is still music-based and not updated for writing. I asked for a link and example and she sent me a .doc that truly was a huge 50 point article. But not a link. She has no gigs listed, but has been a member since December. I suppose it could be legit and its just a way for a writer to outsource help? I’m brand new. Help!
