Level 9… what colour would that be?

I’m still counting in colours – the Paw Levels still don’t give me a feedback of where an author stands.. although i know it means many, many more sales than me :)

Congratulations!

Awesome story – and very good “in-front-of-the-camera” skills.

This was one of the best presentation so far – i really enjoyed what Calin said about the community.

I agree with every word! :)

Lol – got my first interview this morning.

The guy turned up 1h10 late, blamed it on traffic instead of saying “sorry”, and then told me he never heard of ThemeForest before (they are seeking talented frond end developers..).

I guess it can only get better from here :)

Hey, the legend that wants the new rise of October sales after the dead months june, july, august, september… well… so far it’s true for me!

I think i had 7 or 8 sales just today (i live in Australia so it’s 10PM here, but good day!).

Hi Community!

This week, i have actively started applying for 9 – 5 jobs here in Sydney.

While getting ready to welcome my second child just in time for Christmas, i am seeking some financial stability, at least for a few months while my wife is on maternity leave.

I would probably end up fine doing freelancing during that time, but the feeling of insecurity and “what if” that comes with working by yourself is having a certain weight on the whole family dynamics, in times like these.

Before i proceed with numerous interviews, i thought i’d give a shout out to the great envato community.. Ideally i am looking for a part time position, so i could continue work for my own clients and produce for ThemeForest.

I am really good with HTML, CSS, jQuery, getting the hang of pure JS, learning new skills every day (AngularJS, PHP, WordPress APIs, ...). Beyond that, i have a great, friendly attitude and always put 100% in what i am doing.

I have quite a bit of experience with WordPress and “WordPress clients”. I can do friendly / patient support, speak fluently English, French (mother language) and a bit of German..

I am very available, always on skype. Working remotely wouldn’t be a problem in terms of communication.

If anyone (author, buyer, envato) is looking for a hard-working, positive-thinking, passionate web designer/developer, please get in touch with me :)

Like i mentioned, i am living in Sydney, an incredibly expensive place to live in. I am therefore looking for a salary that makes sense in such context..

I am aware that a lot of other skilled designers from other countries would be available at a fraction of the cost, but.. it’s worth a shot.

Should you have anything to discuss, you can reach me via my contact form.

Thanks for reading – have a great day!

I wouldn’t call it luck. Plaxtico has a pretty awesome portfolio and is already populating his dribbble account nicely. Well done and congrats!

PS: You also have been invited by one of the most awesome authors in the whole marketplaces – double congrats!

I recall @Collis not so long ago mentioning that the screenshot preview needed an update badly, so here’s hope that some change is coming regarding this aspect of the marketplaces. :)
