A lot of people want to know that answer and if you freelance, you’re probably one of those people.
It would be great if we could know for sure what the future holds for us, but the truth is that no one knows for sure what changes 2013 will bring.
But what we can do is look at recent trends and make some intelligent guesses about what the near future holds for freelancers.
That’s what I do in this post. For years I’ve been working as a freelancer and paying close attention to the freelancing economy. In this post, I share my predictions about what 2013 may hold for freelancers based on my observations and experience.
Freelancers benefit greatly from having a freelancing blog.
But, a big obstacle for many freelancers (especially those freelancers who aren’t writers) is finding ideas to write about. This problem of knowing what to write on a freelancing blog keeps many freelancers from blogging.
In this post, I’ll give you a hand. I’ll share some ideas about topics you can blog about on your own freelancing blog. Then I’ll invite you to share your own topic ideas in the comments.
Do you have a freelancer bucket list?
Now, you might be wondering what a bucket list is. Simply put, it’s a list of things you’d like to try, but never got a chance to do. It takes its name from the 2007 movie, The Bucket List, in which two aging and terminally ill men set out to do things they always wanted to do before they die.
So, a freelancer bucket list is a list of things that you’ve wanted to try as a freelancer, but haven’t taken the time to do. In this post, I list some things that I think every freelancer should try at least once, but that most freelancers don’t actually try.
Any long-term freelancer will tell you that most freelancers go through ups and downs–periods of high pay and periods of low pay. But the feast or famine cycle can take new freelancers by surprise.
While there are definitely some steps you can take to avoid the feast or famine cycle, for many freelancers the real questions is this–”How am I going to get through this slow period?”
In this post, I’ll provide five tips for surviving your freelancing famine periods (plus a bonus tip). Even if you’ve been freelancing for a while, you may find a freelance survival tip that you can use.
