Really slow in the writing/editing category at the moment?

I'm finding it really slow in the writing/editing category right now (for the last couple of weeks or so)--there seem to be so few promising jobs that actually end up hiring someone.  Anyone else notice this???  I'm feeling a bit useless. Smiley Sad

Over half of my clients are long-term, so that helps insulate me against some of the ups and downs. It takes some time and screening to find those relationships. 


Business-related blog work has picked up recently. I would imagine the types of work being requested reflects economic trends. Where is content still needed to move the needle? That's the types of gigs that will be offered.

I have noticed that as well. Fortunately, I have clients who have come to me, both Upwork and non-Upwork clients. Even the jobs that pay poorly and I wouldn't apply to anyway are few and far between.

I suspect that more and more clients are using the "U.S. only" listing for their jobs, although I'm not sure how much that affects you.
