F-lance Writers Den Junk-Free Job Board

We have an interesting experiment going on Freelance Writers Den -- we've created a job board that aggregates from many popular sites -- but then cuts out all the ridiculously low-paying gigs. We usually come up with just a half-dozen or so listings twice a week. I know several Den members have already landed good gigs through the Board.

This Editor Uses Elance

I'm an editor. Though I generally rely on a group of freelancers who've written for me before, when I need a new writer I use Elance.
—Guest Don Tepper


I've used several freelance job sites and have had lots of success with on many of them. I recently found freelanced.com and am excited about its potential for freelance writers. Check it out: http://www.freelanced.com

Is Freelance Venue reputable?

I was just looking around the websites on this list and found that I could not view any of the jobs posted on Freelance Venue without first filling out a form for one of their "offers", though the site assured me I would only have to do this once. I did not fill out any forms and consequently did not view any jobs. I find this highly suspect. Freelance Venue claims that this process is necessary to prevent Bots from using the site. Wouldn't a simple Turing test do this in a more professional fashion? Has anyone else used this site? Is it a scam? (The titles of some of their "offers" are very suspicious.) Do you really only have to fill out a form once?

Two others that I check on a regular basis, and when I am not so busy with Elance, is getafreelancer.com (or now freelancer.com) and scriptlance.

Does anyone have insight into how virtualvocations.com (a subscription site) compares with other job sites? the # of sites is overwhelming, and a friend suggested it as a starting place for an experienced writer.
