Getting Started Freelancing?

POPULAR

Just thought I'd share some of my favorite freelancing resources:

Freelancing Blogs
Freelance Switch - What I consider to be the best freelancing blog online
Freelance Folder
Wake Up Later
Anti 9 to 5

Jobs
Rent a coder
Get a Freelancer
E-Lance
Craigslist - Better than you realize
Guru

Task Management
Remember the Milk

I have a lot more resources but alas, my pile of crap to do for work is getting bigger. I'd love to see this thread grow as more resources are posted. I'll post more as I get time.

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 11

Freelance Switch is one of the greats, but if you're in web design it'd be highly advised to take a look into some css galleries to get a feel for current trends and stay on top of the game.

Craigslist - Better than you realize


Enlighten me. Which section are you viewing these jobs under? Is it the Software/Qa/DBA section? Is it the Computer gigs section? All I ever see are half-ass posts from people with idiotic expectations. I could just be looking in the wrong spot though.

Learning proper English would be a plus.

It depends on your level and capability to be honest and how well you advertise yourself.

Craigslist? You'd have better luck storming up to a companies front desk and saying you'll design their site. If they're using Craigslist and expect to find professionals then they're really not a client you want to deal with.
