Like most online earning, it's a case of persistence. It took me about a month to land my first job on Elance (and I used all my free bids, so it wasn't a "few" tries). Once you've got a little feedback it gets easier - I haven't done any work via the bidding sites for about two years but I STILL get individual invitations to jobs occasionally.

There are of course a number of online writing sites. I have been writing articles, short stories, reviews, and so on, on some of them. The site you mentioned is new to me. I have been active writing reviews at the site "Reviews Stream". As the name implies, this is a site for writing reviews.
