Re: What's Your Favorite Topic to Write About?

Anything I can write off the top of my head is good for me. Gambling and sport have always been easy, but writing, blogging and all of that is also an easy subject. Some of the most difficult topics have included hair extensions and kitchen refurbishment. Not really my things. My partner will tell y...

Re: Roll Call!--Where in the World Are You?

Lot of members, but many seem to be shy. Hopefully that will change as we continue to grow.

I'm in the UK. In the middle of nowhere. Great if you love castles and rain, but not big on civilization.

Update (We're Still Here)

I haven't been posting much lately and the site hasn't been getting many updates either. It's not for lack of trying though and everything is still definitely active. A lot of work has been going on behind the scenes for both the site and the forum. We spent a couple weeks trying to make the site mo...

Re: What's Holding You Back?

I'm going to say myself. I have several fears. Do I know enough? What if I mess up? I know I'm going to fall along the way so I don't understand why I'm scared to go through that. I also believe I have both a fear of success to go along with my fear of failure. You don't always know enough, but you...

Re: Upwork Fees

Yeah, no need to worry about being banned. I was once suspended through no fault of my own, purely because they tagged a recent client as suspicious and decided that I should be suspended as well until they cleared it up (great logic). But as frustrating as that was, it didn't last more than a coupl...

Re: What's your superpower? Pat your own back.

Speed. I work very quickly and it's always helped me to earn a lot of money even when the rate of pay was low. That's why I usually insist on a fixed price contract. I also know a lot of random shit. Makes me a bore at parties, but it means I can blag my way through a lot of different subjects witho...

Upgrades

If you have tried to use the forum in the last few hours then you're probably very annoyed with us right now. There were a lot of changes, disconnects, and everything else sure to tempt you away. But all was not in vain. We have been updating the site all morning and hopefully now it's a lot better ...
