Freelancers – How much should you charge?

July 8, 2007 by Katy Whitton

That’s a difficult question to answer for the budding freelancer and I discuss it in my Managing Web Projects ebook but it is a bit complicated and a bit of a horrible formula to work out your hourly rate (and please excuse me it’s been a while since I’ve done algebra and brackets confuse me […] … Read More »

There’s an excellent post by Jennifer Slegg (of JenSense fame) at Search Engine Land about Optimising your blog for search engines.

Squidoo have launched a website which allows users to populate “Lenses” with content of their choice. I’ve started my own Lens up called “Be Productive”.
