Just as Helium is one site that helps you earn money as you learn, Scriptlance is the site where you can put all your learning to use. This haven for budding freelancers doesn't charge any fees to register. Every project you get though, will set you back by 5% of the project bid or if the bid is lesser than $100, by $5.
The best part about the site though is the number of visitors that frequent it. Every day you will find loads of opportunity to write, to re-write and to code.
Opportunity for budding freelancers:
The signing in is free and you can bid as many times as you want. You can also pay them for the project after you have earned some money from scriptlance. All this and the high traffic make it ideal for all budding freelancers.
Old Site :
The site is a bit old and so is the interface. Unlike elance or odesk, which are other good freelancing sites, Scriptlance seems old technology.
There are a lot of budding writers out there who try earning money with you. The problem is that they will bid very low and hence this excessive competition doesn't pay.
