I have compiled short and sweet, no-nonsense advice every freelance linguist should have in their toolkit of service offerings, which could be particularly beneficial when generating income during lean times. Check it out at https://ultimatesidehustle.net. Cheers! ~Dorothy

I got a warning pop-up Jul 7

When I clicked on the link I received a warning that my data was not safe. I went back without reading it.
However, I'm curious about the title. I don't feel much as though I were working in a "gig economy".

Very strange. Would you care to post a screenshot of the pop up? Jul 9

Also got a potential security breach alert.

I can't claim to understand the message but the site would seem to be incorrectly configured.

Link works when corrected Jul 10

The problem is the period at the end of the URL (... .net.) – it should not be part of the URL. When you delete the period the link will work.

Trustworthy websites should look differently Jul 12

An anonymous website (no address, no legal notice, no nothing) that asks people to enter their e-mail addresses upfront if they want to know what kind of product or service is offered. Hmm.

BTW, the targeted audience includes people in the European Community, and thus the site violates the EUDataP regulation. https://www.iitr.us/eudatap/3.html
