Top Ten Things A Freelancer Would Rather Be Doing

Posted: August 19th, 2009

Let’s admit it. There are occasionally things that freelancers would rather be doing at the moment. Here are the favorites:

10. Escape from the desk and computer. Going to next room over and use laptop.

9. Getting some more work done while sleeping.

8. Go on that vacation… next year.

7. A redo. Bring it on!

6. Eat much better.

5. Finding a client outside of immediate family.

4. Getting off the wagon for old time’s sake.

3. Something stronger than coffee.

2. Another top ten list this week. (sigh)

1. Making the poverty line for once.

    Hi Freelance Rant,
    I read your Top Ten Things A Freelancer Would Rather Be Doing list and thought it was great. As someone who works at home on his own I can totally relate to your list, it really made me laugh. I help run a site which is entirely user generated top ten lists. We have seen that a lot of websites and bloggers who post their lists to our site are getting a lot of traffic to their site.
    You can source your list when you create it, and a link to your site appears at the bottom of the list. A lot of people click on your link because the original source is always better. Another thing we\\\’ve noticed people do is put your url in the description, and make the list votable, so people can change the rank of your items. Votes are really what makes your list and profile on our site more popular. The more popular your list is on our site, the more people see it, and hopefully will visit your site.
    Let me know if you have any questions, and we hope to see your lists on our site.
