Over the last few years everyone from freelance web designers to large agencies have been growing their businesses thanks to Shopify, the hosted ecommerce platform founded in Canada in 2006.
Helped by the free to join Shopify Experts programme wed designers and front-end developers are reaping the rewards of the immense growth happening in the ecommerce marketplace. With over Shopify 70,000 active shops online, and over 3,000 new stores launching every month, the need for great designers with an understanding of designing for ecommerce and building Shopify themes is growing rapidly.
If you aren’t familiar with Liquid it’s a templating engine first developed by the founder of Shopify and now widely used. Templating languages make it really easy to pull in the data from your online store into your templates.
Have you ever unexpectedly found money?
I know that I have. I once reached into the pocket of a coat I hadn’t worn in a long time and found a crisp ten dollar bill that I didn’t know that I had.

I’m talking about your pets, of course. Whether you have a dog, a cat, or even a fish–there are some definite benefits to freelancing with pets.
Fortunately, as freelancers, we are able to have our pets with us when we work. In fact, I was startled to see that many of the comments on a recent FreelanceM.ag post were about freelancers and their pets. Once I realized how beneficial pets really are, though, the comments made a lot of sense.
If you love freelancing and you love pets, you’ll relate to this post.
It’s not what you think.
Admittedly, there are a lot of things that bother freelancers.
But the one thing that most freelancers agree upon is they don’t want to work for free. Yes, “free” is that four-letter word that freelancers hate.
In this post, I’ll discuss the problem of “clients” who ask you to work for free. I’ll also discuss whether you should ever agree to work for free. If you’ve ever been asked to work without pay, you’ll probably relate to this post.
