What Are Your Biggest Challenges In Your Freelance Career?

First off, I want to tell you I’m extremely happy how FreelanceFolder is doing, we’ve been online since late July and already have around 50 articles published, and the blog has been featured and linked to from a number of great websites and blogs (KillerStartups, LifeHack, NetBusinessBlog and so many others!).

What I personally like the most so far, is the feedback we get from you folks. Our readers, rss subscribers, commenters, well you guys totally rock! Keep the comments, e-mails, questions and discussions going!

We Want To Write For You

Of course, the reason we’re writing on this blog is because we want to help you. So I thought it would actually be a good idea to ask you what you would be interested in. What topics? Any particular tools/sites you would like us to review? Interviews? Case studies?

Let us know in the form of a comment, or drop us an e-mail, we’ll be really happy if we can help you out a little more, provided we have a better idea of what you are looking for. That’s the goal with this blog. ;)

What Are Your Biggest Challenges?

Whether you’re just starting out, you’re freelancing on the side, or you’re into it full-time, let us know what your biggest challenges are. I’m sure one of us writers will find a way to help you out. You can even write a post about it, and we’ll try our best to answer any questions you may have.

Thanx a bunch!

    I don’t know if this is the most challenging part of my freelancing, but I’m thinking about putting together my own little freelance website.

    I want potential clients to be able to search for writers, find me and be able to submit a form detailing their needs from the site. However, I’m just starting out and am not really certain if a website offering my writing services would bring in a lot of new (hopefully better paying) customers.

    What do you think? Is there another better option for finding clients? Or what’s the best way to promote and organize my site?

    Hi Hope, I think this is a very good idea, and I’m sure it would work. Of course you could use sites like Skilllance.com, eLance.com and others to find gigs, but honestly I get most of my clients through my blogs (blogging is great!).

    You could certainly use WordPress to build the site, it’s just a matter of getting people interested and actually contact you, It really depends if you want to have a “post and find jobs” website or simply get new clients (which you can do just by running one or many blogs).

    Well, that gives me a couple of ideas for a post, will e-mail you ;)
