Upwork update!

I just checked Upwork and heard back from my client I've worked for last year. He has no outsourced work for me at this time and had closed out my year-old contract. He would let me know if he needs anything else again. At least I have closure after a long wait. So I don't need to nudge him next week. I also will get five star feedback from him. Better late than never. Now I can move on from here and look for new work.

A five star is really good. And at least he will let you know if he needs you again.

Yes it is Susan. After three nudges and a new contract, he had finally gotten back to me at least, one year since my contract first started.

Hey Melissa. Long time no hear. Thanks. One of my proposals had recently expired. You're welcome. What have you been doing there?

@melissa1024 Cool. I've done editing blogs this spring for 5 months and now book reviews this summer. I do editing or writing or sometimes both.

@KristenH Cool...I am interviewing right now to write ebook reviews! I have found some other platforms similar to upwork that you can get some decent work on also.

@KristenH Glad you still have the book review job. What type of books you reviewing and how long of a book are they?

@Tina30219 Thanks Tina. It varies. Two weeks ago, I did a 32-page children's picture book. Last week, it was a195-page YA dystopian sci fi novella. For this week, it's a 415-page adult thriller or mystery trilogy, but the writing is so bad and loaded with errors; it will get a sub par rating from me this weekend. I'm already into book 2 and see the same errors. No wonder the author had self-published his own work.

Yes it is. I just got five stars and no other comments. I hope so, too, though I wish my success score went back up to 100%.

Me too. My contact was paused for inactivity for almost a year. I would've loved to resume it too.

Yeah it is. Better late than never. But my success score is now at 75% even with his five star feedback.

Upwork sounds like a lot of hassle for just a few dollars here and there.

Not really. It helped me pay for a new computer and renew my gym membership this year. I made 1K with him last year for my first hourly job.

Yep. No more nudges to him. It would've been nice if I worked for him again. That job was one of my favorites I had so far.
