2008 is finally here, I hope you had a lot of fun and everyone got back home safe. I took some time to read my favorite blogs (and some new ones I didn’t know about) and want to share some really cool posts, I hope you find them interesting.
I also took some time to redesign Freelance Folder (come have a look if you’re reading via RSS), I think it was about time cause the previous design was put together in less than an hour, I hope you like it! Usually when a site gets a facelift, half the readers and visitors really love the changes and the other half hates it, gotta do it anyway but I really hope you like it). I’m still fixing some bugs, ya know…IE6 really is a pain in the a**! :)
There are now 6 125×125 banner ads in the sidebar instead of 8, and rotating banners at the bottom of posts. Advertisement is what keeps this site running, if you’re interested in advertising on FF, please get in touch with us. :)
Also the ‘about the author‘ thing is now at the top of the sidebar on single post pages along with links to social media sites.

I recently found a list of Top 100 money-making blogs online and the list is somewhat interesting. You’ve likely heard of some of these blogs. If you are a freelancer working from home then some of them are essential reading. I highly recommend that you subscribe to their news feeds. Take a look at the Top 10 on the list:
- ProBlogger (essential reading, especially if you blog)
- John Chow (good to read for his insights even though he bills himself as a personal blogger, not a make money blogger)
- Shoemoney (I’m not as familiar with Shoemoney, but it looks like a decent goto source)
- Dosh Dosh (a extremely useful resource)
- Daily Blog Tips (I’m not familiar, but Jon is)
- Entreprenuers Journey (Not familiar, but Jon is)
- Andy Beard – Niche Marketing (good insights)
- eMoms at Home (excellent resource for you ladies out there)
- Nate Whitehill (another useful resource)
- NetBusinessBlog (not familiar, but Jon is)
Paisley from Why Paisley sent me an e-mail yesterday, and asked me a couple of questions regarding freelancing and working from home, and I thought it would be a good idea to answer on here, as I think it’ll be interesting and useful to you freelancers. :)
