YES! Today I officially got my first paying job and it came through a site I didn’t have much hope for, Peopleperhour.com. They are out of the U.K. and deal with mostly European and Middle East jobs. The gentleman I am working with has given pretty clear instructions, yet he is giving me some creative room as well. He jots down some notes and I create a blog entry, I am not using his words verbatim, but the general idea and so far he likes what I have given him. And he’s offered me some further work!
Until this chance came along I was going to prostitute my skills just to get a few things under my belt and have experience of some sort. Now I don’t need to, I just turned down an offer of $1 for a 500 word post that I was seriously considering. I don’t see piles of cash in my future, I don’t even see enough to pay the bills, but it’s a start. This is by no means a full-time job it might fizzle into nothing, or it might end up being my pocket-money while I hold down a full-time job (if and when I find one).
Even if it turns out that I really don’t like doing this, at least I tried something different and stepped outside of my normal scope.http://killerteacup.wordpress.com/ mirrored on http://ghostofawriter.blogspot.com/ http://killerteacup.blogspot.com
