Populis Create Fired Freelance Writers!

LAS VEGAS, NV - APRIL 28:  Chairman and Presid...

Image by Getty Images via @daylife

Wow! It seems like most, if not all freelance writers at Populis Create have been fired! I really am not surprised with the way they’ve been behaving lately. What really concerns me is the people that wrote articles and have not been paid. I really hope they send out the payments due to everyone. And then there are people like me. I was paid double for the bonus, but was never able to make up that money. So, technically I owe them money! Are they going to come after me for it?

I really thought Populis Create was going to be a great place to write that would be around for a long time. It started off very strong, but quickly went down hill. I can’t say I’m not disappointed that this gig didn’t pan out. But, what is it the French say,  C’est la vie? That seems to be appropriate to say right now, well, better than the alternative of cursing! LOL!

So, if you’ve received an email and have had your Populis Create account closed, you are not alone. And even though the email says that you didn’t meet their requirements, I wouldn’t believe that. Sounds like an excuse to me.  So brush it off and start looking for a new place, or put some extra time into a place you already write for!  I’m always on the lookout for new and better places to write, but for the time being, I’ll put my extra time into my current gigs.

Free To-Do List

Organization is very important in becoming a successful freelance writer. Many people find that creating a to-do list helps them be more productive as well as makes sure that nothing is forgotten.  When you see all the tasks you need to do written out, it helps to plan your week accordingly. And, nothing is better than a free to-do list!

I am an avid lister. I write lists for everything, from shopping lists  to packing lists, and from Christmas lists to task lists.  I used to religiously use Franklin Planners when I worked out of the home and have been looking for a free to-do list online to replace that tool.

I have tried several free to-do online tools, from Remember The Milk to Google Tasks.  Nothing seems to really get me as excited as my Franklin Planner… that is until someone recommend TeuxDeux, a really awesome free to-do list, on WAHM.com.  I am now in love!

TeuxDeux is a great browser-based, simple, clean-looking, daily task list manager. It is so simple to use! Keep the TeuxDeux window open right next to your email tab.  Add tasks for each day of the week, and then cross them off once you are done. You can easily move tasks from one day to another.  When you create an account, there is a very quick video you can watch to learn how to use TeuxDeux. The video is only about 2 minutes, so I recommend you view it.

If you are looking for a free to-do list, or know someone that could benefit from using a free to-do list online, check out TeuxDeux and you won’t be disapointed.

Please note that I do not receive any compensation of any kind from people using the free to-do list manager TeuxDeux. It is simply a great product that I wanted to share with others!
