Writing for Bukisa,One year anniversary

If you haven’t heard of Bukisa as a writing site,it’s probably because it’s not taken very seriously as a source of income.

New Freelance Writing Opp- On Facebook???

Imagine that- a freelance writing money-making application on facebook. It’s new,I can tell that there are conflicts between the writers and the editors (name a relationship more doomed?)

Anyway- here it is,have you ever come across a TERRIBLE WEBSITE? Where everything is spelled wrong,or the English is poorly translated? That’s what this [...]
