    Recently, I moved from Chisinau (Moldova) to London. I stopped doing IM and got a full-time job here, but I feel like I have way too much free time in my hand that I am wasting on things which are not helping me in my journey of becoming a better version of myself.

    I made an account on UpWork and got scammed right from the start in projects that I put time, energy and effort into. I found out that UpWork is not the best idea when you are a new freelance writer.

    Today I create a new chapter in my life:

    I am going to improve myself as a writer, and this is why I choose BlackHatWorld as my boosting machine that will help me achieve my particular goal. Making a living from writing is not my ideal, I'd rather improve my writing skills and general knowledge while I research topics.

    My pro's:

    - Premium Grammarly account
    - Tendency to write unique and original content
    - Ability to research any topic and extract the basic ideas
    - Basic knowledge about SEO article formatting
    - UpWork's spelling and grammar English test which tells me I am in the top 20% of freelance users.

    My con's:

    - Never been able to have my articles reviewed by people that know a thing or two about freelance writing


    Journey steps:

    - For a specific amount of time (I haven't decided how long yet) I will write five 250-500 words articles for BHW members for free, every day. (Write a reply or send me a PM with: the topic, length, and additional information) - One article / User

    - I would ask the user who made the request to leave a comment in this thread (after he recieves and reads the article) with the following format:

    1. Article rating (a mark from 1 to 5)
    2. The price he would offer for 100 words of my work
    3. Additional remarks


    Thank you for your time and from this moment, let the requests come.


    Kind Regards,

    Aesis.

    Brilliant idea. I was wanting to get back into article writing too, but it's difficult to make any real money without any samples/testimonials of your work. Good luck

    I got my article on a technical topic (related to programming). Best features: delivery is very quick and research on the topic is pretty deep (I learned a few new things too). The weak point of the article is the connection between different parts of the article. It looks like each paragraph is independent and this decreases the value of the article a lot. My rating is 3. The price for 100 words: 0.5-0.6 USD.

    Thanks for the free article!

    Thank you so much for your honest opinion.
    This is what I am looking for: Parts where I lack so I know what I have to improve.

    Thank you for the free 500 words, Aesis, I really appreciate it. Things I liked - on topic, great layout and almost cannot tell you are not a native. When I say "almost" there are better words you could of chosen - i.e "which is" - "there is" . If you tweaked certain sentences and used the best word selection, I think your articles would defiantly be above standard, especially for a non-native. Overall 3.5 out of 5 and I would pay $0.8 per 100 words, but if you improved word selection, I would have no issues paying 1.50 per 100 words.

    Thank you for your review!

    That's a good point you have right there and it got me thinking about ways to improve my words selection.
    Have a nice day!

    Wondering what have happened with this one. I am more than eager to offer advice to newbies starting out with freelance writing because I believe that my advice can actually make a significant difference in an individual's journey.
