  • 6/23/2010 - Scared of Upgrading to WordPress 3.0? Well…

    Chances are, if you have a self-hosted Wordpress blog, you’ve dealt with issues when upgrading to latest versions. In my experience (and likely yours), most upgrades are completed without issue but there are always those few that make you spend half the day trying to get the Wordpress back to normal, much less, up to date.

    Now this time, Wordpress has reached a new milestone. Three point zero. A new era for Wordpress.

    Or in the case of your own blog, just the thought of upgrading to it creates a panic with flashbacks of the Y2K millenium bug thrown in. Maybe not that bad but you get the picture.

  • 6/9/2010 - Ten Things A Freelancer Hasn’t Gotten Around To Doing, But Probably Should

    As I said in my last post, taking a day off from your freelancing activities is necessary every once in a while.

  • 6/1/2010 - Hopefully Solved: Freelancing Hourly Vs. Fixed Pricing Debate

    Last week, I read an interesting post on why you shouldn’t charge an hourly rate as a freelancer. I thought it was spot on and gave great insight on how freelancers can make a comfortable income.

    What was really of interest to me were the comments though. While some appeared to understand the concept that an hourly rate can hold you back, it still didn’t grasp many. It even became hotly debated in parts with the author, Amber, having to justify her (rather enviable) pricing to clients.

    So, in case you’re not convinced fixed pricing is for you or you don’t understand its real advantage, here is a little explanation.
