15 Helpful Websites for Freelancers

As a freelancer, I read several websites and blogs on freelancing.

Here are some of the best websites and blogs I have found for freelancers.

These websites cover getting started as a freelancer, general information that can help all freelancers (no matter what sort you are) and advice from individual freelance writers.

Freelance Switch

Freelance Switch is a great site relevant to all freelancers.  They have a particularly good section on getting started as a freelancer.

Michelle Rafter – Word Count

Freelance Success

I discovered this site after reading Freelancing for Australians – For Dummies written by Susan M. Drake and Monica Davidson.  This site is founded by freelance filmmaker and writer Monica Davidson. I like the book and website as they are specifically written for Australian Freelancers.

 The Adventurous Writer

Laurie Pawlik-Kienlen runs a series of six Quips and Tips blogs.    One of them is based on being a freelance writer.

Men with Pens

Diary of a Mad Freelancer

This one is a totally new find.  I look forward to exploring this blog further.

Urban Muse Writer

Make a Living Writing

I know I mentioned both Urban Muse and Make a Living Writing in a recent post on my favourite blogs, but they are so relevant to freelancers, I just had to mention them both again.

I am sure I have missed some great sites.  Feel free to share your favourite sites for freelancers in comments.

    Hi Thea, thanks for sharing these unique links, although I would appreciate more if you have short descriptions for some of them. Some of which I have known just now. As a freelancer, its always best that we know lots of resources. Also, have you checked on staff.com? I saw them on one of the blog posts in odesk, checked on them and found them interesting. Maybe you’d like to add it up on your list.
