Notes from the Life of a Freelancer

Freelancing can be a blessing and a curse. Many of us became freelancers because we wanted to leave office life behind. We like controlling our schedule. We like determining which projects we will accept. And we like having a limited commute, from the coffee pot to the home office. All those things are great. But freelancing has its challenges, too.

Consistency is the biggest challenge that I face as a freelancer: consistency in billing, consistency in workload, and consistency in getting paid.

Here are some articles that I wrote for Queercents about my life as a freelancer. I hope you find them helpful. And if you’ve got your own tips for making it on your own, I’d love to hear from you in the comments section.
