My friend (May) introduced me to her writing gig at essays.ph, she says it will not give you fat cash but your efforts will be compensated and recognized. It is also a good outlet that can turn into a hobby that pays. Of course I got interested and tried to register right away. After being accepted, a lot of things happened that I cannot barely sit and think for a while outside my usual work and house errands so I left my account there for years, I think almost 2 years… good thing they did not deactivate my account. Maybe they do not have that in their policy… How understanding… at this point, I have proven one thing that May once told me about Essays.ph… it’s like a family (virtual family).
A few months ago, May and I had our once in a while long chat and we arrived at the subject of Essays.ph again. I said that I would like to give it a try again, this time I feel like I’m ready to do some writing assignments, of course she encouraged me. The weekend after our conversation I grabbed my first assignment and failed to submit on time…. I felt so stressed then because I want to do it perfectly – (at least based on my own criteria) and I ended up changing and changing the words, phrases and sentences in one article. When I told May about it, she told me to loosen up and be more relaxed, anyway they will review it and return if it needs revisions. I totally missed that point, she’s right they will not only get those articles that you made; they will also help you improve your writing skills. Totally cool.
My first successful assignment was rewriting an article. I chose that not only because it was the easiest among the list of assignments available that time, but also it has the longest time allotment. I don’t want to fall short of my deadline again. After submission, I waited anxiously for the result of the article review since May told me that I shall receive a text message if I need to revise my work. Good thing that I didn’t get any revision message instead I saw an acceptance note with a rating. My first article scored 87…Yehey! Clap, clap, clap. I felt so happy and proud of myself. I really like the idea of putting a score/rating for each accepted article, not that I’m grade conscious or what, I just felt that it will somehow motivate me to try to outshine my previous score and create a better quality article.
Following that, I get other assignments which required more writing skills, not just re-writing. I follow the instructions given carefully to come up with satisfying articles and submit on-time. Along the way, I learned a lot of new things while writing those articles, stuff that enriches my knowledge in almost everything there is… diet, exercise, technology, self-help, sex, medical conditions, geography, marketing, anything. While doing this, I do not only receive monetary incentive but I also gain knowledge augmentation. Thanks to Essays.ph ( http://www.essays.ph/ ) and more power to our virtual family. 😉
