textbroker / other similar sites?

Sorry if there's an existing thread on this, - I couldn't see one?

I'd like to do some work from home: writing, proof-reading, anything like that, but don't know where to start looking. Years ago I used to have an account on Textbroker, but I found that they start you off on level 3 I think it was, but you can only get work at level 4 or 5 and you only get to level 4 or 5 by completing work assignments (which you can't get because you're only at level 3)

Does anyone know, is this still the case, or if there's anywhere else to look for work of this sort?

    As someone that does a lot of writing (mostly fiction), I had a look at Textbroker a few years ago. I signed up, submitted my application and was finally offered articles that were of no interest to me or perhaps anyone else come to think about it. Topics mostly covering manufacturing, something I knew very little about without having to do a plethora of research (all became pointless as I wasn't earning much for the effort). I found articles appeared very rarely on any other subject matter so just gave up.

    There are alternatives if you haven't had a look.


    I like Copify, but I just don't have the time to commit to it at the moment. You could also set up a page on Fivrr and offer your services through there.

    If you fall down, fall on your back, because if you can look up, you can get up.
