RWC Logotype The newest article from our “Blast from the Past” series is here! With all these updates and upgrades we forgot about the min purpose of our blog: offering you awesome freelance writing content.

As you know, the series is dedicated to highlighting some of the best articles, which were previously posted on our blog.

We want to change that, because these articles truly deserve your attention :)

This time we are offering you a couple of articles posted in December of last year and in January 2011. Here we go: Read the rest of this entry »


RWC Logotype Editor’s note: please read the latest comment from me on the article – it will be titled in CAPS and you should easily find it. It should respond to all of your requests and questions. Thank you.

As you probably know, recently we have launched an update for the admin panel, which changed the way things work with the RWC to a great extent.

We’ve added a new status and made some changes to the availability of the orders for different writing statuses with the RWC, as part of the whole update package.

You have to understand that a system of such complexity, like the RWC, is pretty hard to predict and model. That’s why we always stated that the system will be updated and tailored to suit your needs (sorry for the pun there). That’s what we are working on, right now.

We pay a lot of attention to your feedback, because we understand the importance of the community and it’s strength: as long as RWC is in sync with its writers – we will all be doing a great job of satisfying our customers.
