Elance Spotlight: Where Has Online Work Taken You This Summer?

As the summer starts to wind down for many of us, we thought it would be exciting to discover where our global community spent time over the past few months. You could win a $50 Amazon gift card just by answering the following question:

Where has online work taken you this summer?

Just wanting to follow the rules . . . . hoping for a clarification! Above it says to email to Elance, but then it says to also post to Facebook and to Twitter AND it says to only enter once. So, does one entry require all 3 postings to be complete? Or is one method of posting (Email, Facebook, OR Twitter) counted as one entry and should not be repeated in the other locations?

Look forward to hearing how to enter correctly.



Your official submission should be sent to elance_spotlight@elance.com; the Facebook/Twitter options are just if you get bitten by the social media sharing bug!

Good luck!
