Yesterday, I embarked on a little venture where I signed up on Fiverr to do what they call “gigs.”
My gig is that I will write one article on a topic of your choosing that is at least 500 words long. All for $5.
I am not entirely mad. Really. I promise.
I have ulterior motives. What's new, right? 🙂
You see, I fashion myself as a pretty competent writer. I like writing and I'm very good at it. But I want to get faster while maintaining my quality. So I thought that I should start writing more. But that wasn't enough.
I know me. I know that sometimes I'm more motivated to help others than to help myself. So putting up this gig serves at least two purposes:
- I am forced to be a faster writer. At $5 a pop, I won't get rich writing 1 article an hour. I'd like to write 10 an hour.
- I'm getting paid to improve my writing skills. I think that's pretty brilliant.
Oh, and I guarantee delivery within 24 hours. So even if I get a backlog, I still have plenty of time to put the pedal to the metal.
If you would like me to write a 500-word article on any topic, buy a gig from me on Fiverr. Besides $5,what do you have to lose?
