As promised, every day of the week I'm going to post one item from my closed etsy shop for free. As of right now I have over 1,000 digital products since closing. Instead of letting them rot away in a folder on my desktop, taking up space until I figure out what to do with them, I'm releasing them on my blog and FaceBook page free of charge. Commercial usage: I do not mind you using the file for commercial usage. I DO NOT allow you to resell the file as is as a digital product. Please make alterations to the file before doing so.

It's official. I've made the decision to leave the Upwork platform, it's just not for me. I did merge over from Elance, and landed a few jobs, but I just cannot handle starting from scratch. There's one thing Upwork has more than Elance and any other platform: Low balling job offers. Unfortunately, I cannot work 5-6 hour jobs for $5.00.
