New to THS - what am i getting wrong?!

Welcome @Zoe5 !. It’s good that you posted on the forum because you’ll get help here! The best way to find a sitter is to post an attractive listing so sitters will send applications. Inviting sitters is very hit or miss for a variety of reasons. Many sitters are not available – the availability calendar is not helpful as many sitters don’t update it, or they may not want to sit in your location or for your type of pet.

It’s also best to post your dates at least a month or more ahead.

If you add your listing to your forum profile, experienced members will give you feedback to help you make your listing as good as it can be. In doing this, your listing will also reach forum members who may not have seen it on the website. Follow these instructions: How to add your listing or profile to your forum profile

Maybe we can get this happening for you!
