oDesk Connect and Membership Plan

oDesk Connects and Membership Plan and What it Means to You

March 31st will be a historic day for freelancers on oDesk when the new membership starts to roll out. And just as expected, this new oDesk membership scheme marks another tell tale sign of what I call, the "Elancipation of oDesk". Remember, they told us that it will be two separate platforms, but they never said that they will continue to work on the same scheme, that is, FREE and equal membership levels on oDesk versus upgrade/paid options on Elance. So tomorrow, when you log in to your...

You can either be a general practitioner or you can be a specialist. And if you put two doctors' side by side, one a general practitioner and the other, say a dermatologist, when you have a problem with your skin, who would you choose?

On some occasions, I'd go to an Internet café near our boarding house just to submit my articles and communicate with client. During my early days with doing online jobs, my first few...
