Your post is very confusing. I find it difficult to know what you are trying to tell. :sweat_smile:

I think you’re confusing the word ‘gig’ with the word ‘order’.

A gig is the the service you offer. An order is the contract made for you to do the work.


As for what I do when I have no orders, depends. Self-improvement, hobbies, personal projects, housework, other things that need doing…

I thought the same but these lines are very confusing:

I the only one who working on a gigs just for training? or what do you do with all the free time between gigs ?

As far as I can tell, ‘training’ is a stand in word for ‘practice’. So:

Am I the only one who challenges themselves with practice orders?

Well I not trying to tell must … asking what are you doing when you do not have work ? between projects

second I tell that I find project and start working on them even before I get them … because I work to train my skill … and if I get the gigs . I am already well on my way :grin:

Oh, Thank you for letting me know! :smiley:
It’s great that you practice your skill, you can also use that practiced work to show in gig gallery to the buyers.

Hmmm.

Today is currently what I call my “Blog Writing Day” so I am writing blogs for two of my own websites - one I use to promote my freelance services and one to cross promote one of my handful of eBooks.

I’m not normally without a lot to do over here…lol

you could say that :slight_smile: I am not sure why it is wrong to say training …but okay that might end up learn something new when it come to the English language :smiley:

I saw you are offering excel sheets so no clue what you can do with your free time,
But being designer , I always spend my free time preparing and improving my portfolio and learning new art style and observing other similar works !

‘Training’ and ‘practicing’ have similar meanings in English, and can often be used as synonyms, so your use (in this case) isn’t wrong. It’s just a rather tricky nuance. ‘Training’ usually has an external or third-party perspective, closer to ‘teaching’, while ‘practice’ is more internal or self-driven, and is closer to ‘rehearse’ or ‘refine’.

Definitions, as found on the internet.

When i dont have orders or i have i still run my own freelance projects in real life.
Or just learn more about editing, or going out having work around my backyard…

what kind of work do you do ?

I do Music videos, Promo videos, Weddings and so on, I own a small Media Agency, and at meantime when covid affected me i am doing fine with Fiverr as my main income at this point, and slowly getting my own projects back in normal
