Raise your hourly rate for sure and remove "data entry" as that's a magnet for scammers.

Geography is irrelevant. There is nothing wrong with charging $6/hour if that is what one's labor is worth.

 

A freelancer earns more money working some jobs at $6/hr than zero jobs at $20/hr.

Geography is absolutely relevant, pal. Try living on $6/hour in san francisco or NYC. Let's be real.

Oh no kidding! Especially now that Washington state raised minimum wage to $15 a hour. And housing is still impossible at that wage.

So my profile got approved. I want to make sure my profile looks good, I don't have a portfolio yet( I'm working on that).

I was also wondering when I talk about my skills should I do like a bullet style or keep it the way I have it?

Thanks for the feedback guys.

You have a lot of spelling errors, as well as capitalization issues.
