Anyone feel any changes in proposals or work here in the current economy?

Whose current economy? America's? There MIGHT be an economic downturn on the horizon, but it hasn't happened yet.

 

When I look at your profile, you seem to be getting loads of work and making really good money, so I don't understand why you make these worried posts every couple of days?

I make OK money -- I'm just a bit concerned because usually end of August is when I get crazy amounts of proposals and it's been quiet - ever since the update.

Do you mean invites?

 

Because proposals is the thing you send back to a client, not the the thing you get from a client.  Or do you mean job postings?

Oh yes, invites, and jobs. Very meager. Another guy posted on here Upwork has been slacking in google rankings in job searches in my field so that may be another.

Slacking?

 

I think you and I have very different expectations for Upwork really.

$5K in new projects from June/July plus thousands more from 46 jobs in progress (!), and yet Tom is always in the forum commiserating with newbies who've made little or nothing on Upwork. I wish that I had such problems!

Attention seeking or the 'new and revitalized' Danny M perhaps?

I am a newbie honestly - most of you have been on here much longer than I have, so I'm learning the ropes. I saw this guy with like an impressive 500k, and another lady with impressive 3M profile -- sometimes I am a bit "concerned for nothing" I guess. You know this job is lonely and you guys are my friends in a way and just wanted to get some input on the current situation.

Calling yourself a newbie is like making fun of everyone around. Please, respect our brains.
