Hi All:


I'm curious about the fact I've haven't gotten any responses to my proposals lately.  I used to get pretty good responses, invites.  Of course, I understand about slow periods, etc.


Question: Are there any negative comments on my profile I'm not aware of? Did a someone post something about me I should know about?

Harold, to be honest when I hire I don't read profiles that are written in the 3rd person. It's one of my biggest pet peeves and unless you are HRH Elizabeth II or Julius Caesar it's simply not "right" on this platform.


Well, there is no rule against it, but it's... well ... "odd!"


In an industry that is super sensitive to plagiarism, using images that are watermarked so are clearly used without a licence is breathtakingly offputting...


I think you could also benefit from some feedback. Are all three of those contracts active and ongoing?

Speaking of images, why does "101 things to do in the US" have a weird map that has the names of foreign countries instead of states, like China for Texas and Democratic Republic of Congo for Alaska? And the sample itself doesn't at all resemble the description of "a City Guide for each major city". When reading something called 101 things to do, you expect to find one of those 101 things described, unless 101 things was just a figure of speech.
