Thank you! Can you offer any insight or advice about this site? I've never heard of it and I'm looking for a writing job...

Hmm. I can really on speak for how things have gone for me, personally, in what I do. I have had pretty good success here, though there is huge competition both artistically and in the large number of artists gunning for a small number of jobs. There are a ton of self-publishing, first-time authors who are unfamiliar with pricing for artists that make a living at there craft. Hence, most are offering hobbyist's wages; I suspect you will need to field a fair amount of those, also. There are also hobbyists bidding on jobs here. They tend to bid unrealistically low and end up upside down in the jobs they bid on and often never complete the jobs. You will want to check the job postings often, as in a short time- an hour or so- maybe 40 people will have bid. There is a delay of an hour or more before jobs post to normal members (like me) so that most expensive memberships get first shot. I recommend putting your email address up where I put mine so that people can contact you directly without needing to join the site. I got my last book that way from a local author and am scheduled for a second book from him later this Fall. I also, put my pricing along with the email; it helps weed out those who cannot afford to pay you. I hope this is helpful to you.
