    I'm an article writer. About a month ago a buyer ordered my gig on Fiverr but didn't submit any details so officially the clock was not ticking. This never happened to me before and I thought may be he will give me the details later so I didn't give it much thought. About a week later he gave me a topic. I wrote an article and delivered it to him. And then guess what..he asked for a mutual cancellation stating that he 'ordered by mistake' I mean seriously ? No extra communication whatsoever. Now it was just one article and I assumed that if I denied his request may be he would've left me a negative rating so I accepted it anyway.

    It's been over 20 days since it happened and I have yet to receive a new order :( I think that cancellation affected me somehow and may have caused my gig to rank lower in the search results. I'm a level 2 seller with 100% positive rating. Still just because of a stupid mistake of a buyer I'm not getting any new order. At least that's what I think. The worst part is that I just need 2 more reviews to complete my 100th review.

    I think it's time to do a review exchange :/ Maybe I'll start offering some free articles too.

    Anyway can anyone give me some advice ? I need to make at least $100 a week. I know it may not be a lot to most of you guys but it means a lot to me.
