Just approved onto platform!

Hello peers,


I wanted to introduce myself and get familiar with the message board.  I am new to Upwork but not to freelancing.  I have been freelancing a lot with **Edited for Community Guidelines** recently and finishing my personal website.  I look forward to reading the valuable information here and getting to know everyone.

Read all of the articles that Upwork recommends for new freelancers on the platform. That way you aren't posting in a week about how someone scammed you, or how you did hourly work without using the tracker and now the client won't pay you etc.


I read a lot on the platforms, and I was able to learn from other people's mistakes, and the advice that experienced Upworkers gave them.
