Web Freelancer needing Income Ideas
Hey all,

I am a freelance web developer and have been doing work for clients for a few years. Although I hit large patches of client work, sometimes I hit barren zones with barely anything. As a long time GLPer, I know a lot of you guys have good ideas or have probably been in my shoes at one time or another. Maybe some of my suntards have an idea for steady income stream? :)

I'm only human, it's my biggest flaw.

We must all realize a sink a chair and a pillow are all luxuries of home and a soldiers helmet takes the place of all three.

Did that, not worth it to be honest. I end up spending 10-15 min on just obtaining working ftp details.

Been doing web dev since I was 12 (about 30) off and on with html/css. Did table designs back in those days (bleck!). Started officially doing serious work when I was 19 when I started going to college. Worked for a 9-5 for 3 years and then been doing freelance off and on for about 5 years so far.

Sure, for those items you put on dsplay.
But there's no reason why you couldn't place a sign saying "special projects outside of this offer can be done for a special price".

It was for a new business logo but we needed to control the input and a final say in the logo. You can get a single generic logo from the person for 5 bucks, but I needed it right. The guy had 250+ orders in his que at one point, he said it is paying his full time schooling all by it self.

Re: Web Freelancer needing Income Ideas
I do it all css, html, jquery but primarily these days C#

The best way to freelance is to be a single employee for a small business. It's the same thing, I work from home and work my own hours. One client instead of 50 to deal with.

Look into vending machines if you can get your hands on some $ to invest. There are all kinds of them out there nowadays, not just beverages & snacks. Good luck!

You could always go away? Most people would be happy if you did.
Maybe get a job?
But no, you are to special for such things right? cruise
