How to Get Your First Client on People per Hour

pph_blog_logoIn People per Hour  (PPH) blog.  PPH is a British freelancer platform like elance.

To tell you the truth, I’ve  moved past it as finding a recurrent higher level gig directly is much less hassle. They charge a lot for providing the platform and most of the gigs don’t pay much, especially if you consider an effort to get the gig/payment.

However, it’s a good starting point for somebody wanting to try her hand in freelancing.

Upd after 3 weeks, the result of publishing in the blog:

  • one person who wanted a European sales person (20% commission on fabulous contracts selling his photography stuff; I never said that I do sales);
  • one person who promised in broken English to “do any job for me”;
  • two people saved me in their “favorite category” (didn’t know you can do it).

Silence of the PLoS

How do I get PLoS blog editors to reply?

Stephen King (Shining) and George R.R. Martin (Game of Thrones) in their memoirs write nostalgically about  collecting rejection slips from the journals.

While I don’t need to print and post my writing, I envy them: most on-line publications don’t even bother replying to a submission. I would like to know who is the current editor of  PLoS blog -submitting my guest blog proposal  to the personal  email address should increase the chances of a response.
