I got a Promotion!

level one

First and foremost: Thank you all so much who helped me get this promotion! I could type it a hundred times, and put just as many exclamation marks, but it would not be enough to express how grateful I am to have been able to come this far. It really means a great deal, and it’s something I have been looking forward to since I started.

Honestly I woke up on the wrong side of the bed this morning, and then things continued to throw wrenches into my daily grind, but then I logged online to look for any new messages. That’s really all I expected: messages, if anything. So to see that I got another order (From someone I have worked with in the past, no less! That makes this experience all the more meaningful for me.) that got me promoted to a Level One Seller simply blew me and any negativity away.

Now, for those of you who do not understand what this promotion means, when you begin at Fiverr, you start out as just that: a beginner. You work your way up from there – Level One, Level Two, and finally earn the title of a Top Rated Seller. To have reached this first huge milestone is just amazing. So again, I thank everyone who has helped me get here!

Beginnings

I spent the majority of my childhood alone, and in place of physical friends and adventure my mind came up with various characters I could pick stories and feelings for. Though I was too young to write what I could envision down when this began, I continued to come up with more and more that I would one day write down. When that day came, my writing never stopped. Since then, I have written up countless stories and also a great deal of informational papers on things I had researched to ridiculous lengths. And when I’m not busy filling blank pages with my research and imaginary adventures, I have enjoyed helping out others in proofreading and adding on to their own papers before they turned in their work.

For years I brushed off suggestions to take it further, to see if I could earn any money by doing what I obviously loved. It was simply a hobby in my mind and I only took those suggestions seriously when I became a stay at home mom. Why not spend my free time between cleaning and chasing down kids doing something I was passionate about if I could continue to help others and also turn a profit from it? So I did what I love to do: I researched. Eventually, I came upon the site I currently use to market my gigs, and began to reach further and further out into the internet community in order to gain experience, advice, and popularity. I do not regret what I have started, even if I am still a small time freelancer.

One day I hope to go on to bigger tasks, expanding from research and reviews for my clients to writing far more in-depth works and editing for others before I consider going even bigger – possibly publishing one of my own stories. For now, however, I am glad to be building things up; my name, my confidence, my sales, and most importantly the trust I get from my clients.
