I know what you mean, Richard. I'm grateful, in a way, that I don't net a lot of jobs from there. For now.

Many niches have certain times of the year when there's much more work available. We need to understand the rhythms of our niches and plan appropriately.

Specialists make more money on average than generalists, +Evan Davis. However, as I discuss in the blog post, some niches do have slow periods and periods where it is crazy busy. Many successful freelance writers develop 2-4 niches so that they are always busy.

Richard, I HATE when clients don't act on a job! That's easily the most annoying aspect. Ugh. Even if it's awarded to someone else, closure would be nice, you know? 
I'm sorry Elance didn't work out for you and I definitely wish you the best!

Better than an infographic--a compendium of free image resources. This has probably been shared before, but if so, is worth sharing again. I was just now searching for images and bumped right into it--the Wikipedia page of free image archives. http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Free_image_resources.

If you want comprehensive training in how to be a successful #freelance   #writer  , I strongly urge you to join the Freelance Writers Den. I've been a member since it was first started three years ago by Carol Tice, and I've been a very active moderator in the forums ever since. 

Read my post about the Freelance Writers Den and see if it's a good fit for you. 

Note: the Den is open now, but most of the time it is closed to new members.

Some look down on being a blogger for hire, but I think it's a good revenue stream. What do you think?

Hi +Noemi Tasarra-Twigg I really like this one. Personally, after being a software developer for 15+ years, point 3 is music to my ears:

"If something goes wrong in the backend, then the owner will be the one to deal with things. Of course, that doesn’t mean you can’t help if you can, but at the end of the day, the brunt of the burden is not on you."

It's good to be able to get in, do your work and move on.
