A new site I just "discovered"... Humans.net

I don't know if you will find it interesting... Anyway, here we go! As I teach Spanish online, I was interested in finding either a site where I can write and earn or a site to offer my services as a teacher - translator, etc... And I found www.humans.net . There, you can open an account if you want to offer a service or if you are searching for help.

They claim "Zero fees. No middleman".

I'm still creating my profile. I just had to give my email, a password, fill in some info about myself and upload a picture.

In case you are looking for help, there are lots of categories, from cleaning, health and beauty, classes, moving help, and a lot more.

It looks quite interesting and with possibilities.

I'll let you know when I have more information. Hope it helps!

Finally, had you already heard about this site?

Have a great day!

Never heard of it. Hope it is valid and is useful to you. As long as it does not demand too much personal information. If I were going to seek someone's information, I'd offer a site with real benefits and not charge so subscribers would be anxious to give me their info, as versus trying to get info and they are suspicious.

Hello, VinceSummers ! Oh, maybe I didn't express it correctly, sorry. I'm just including some information about me and what I have to offer to any person interested in Spanish classes, as my curriculum, experience, etc. (Apart from some basics, as my name, nationality, etc. They say there are no fees involved so, as far as I know, it sounds quite legal. Thanks for your opinion! :)

Not meant so much as an opinion as a gentle warning. We all need to pull together to avoid being scammed. Not that I thought you were being scammed... But there are so many scammers out there. Some are even clever (even though the majority are stupid as sin).

Looks interesting. I saw one on there looking for a nanny for a child whose mother had just died of breast cancer and the father's work took him out of state. Very sad. But as Vince has said, you have to beware of scammers and take proper precautions. I mention that because the sad story was written in not quite perfect English which seems odd for a professional with a lot of work on!

I would prefer to go with a site that has already been established, already has a good reputation and already has many members and in fact does pay honestly and does not lie and cheat and so forth. One such site was this one and will always be such a site. The other is myLot, where the ads pay off but the ads also are a distraction and a headache. There has to be a site that not only has been around a longer period of time, but does not entirely generate revenue from just ads. I mean if the substantive quality of articles by writers would be the basis for success, indeed any site that has managed to survive probably has both good writers, good reputation of long standing and of course those silly ads that also are unfortunately a necessary evil in all forms of media, and all online sites advertise. This has been the basic nature of everything from radio, newspaper, television and streaming video but the one exception of course is a book, which has no ads in it at all and if enough books are sold, that makes the writer very happy. So for that reason so many more writers are self-publishing and blogging.
