Many professional freelancers prefer to stay away from the largest job board sites–for good reason, as many sites have a reputation for low compensation or unscrupulous clients. However, there are still quite a few of us that find a good portion of our projects on these sites – or sites like them. Small jobs like those found on Elancer, Odesk, Freelancer, or others can help supplement your regular client projects.

Freelancing can get quite lonely and you may feel rather disconnected from the outside world. While many advocate working in an environment filled with others (such as your local Starbucks), the fact remains that you just don’t get the same benefits of being able to bounce ideas off of colleagues. While this may seem an unfortunate side effect of going solo, I have the mindset that working independently doesn’t mean that the array of community focused efforts online can’t benefit you.
