    this looks promising


    I don't know if you are familiar with the cool home pages site. It's a great source of inspiration. I found this link (webprosnow.com)from their site. When I get my site completly up and running I am going to try to get on this. They have criteria and they screen you first. But if you get accepted it looks like it could be a promising source of work.

    Yeah...

    I live out by where it was filmed..but I missed the whole circus while it was being filmed..I got into Twin Peaks when a roommate of mine bought the collection.

    Destroyed like a week of my life while I watch each and every episode.

    I'm enjoying a cup of joe right now!

    web pros site

    thanks. i will try the link with the job postings.

    but for anyone who is interested i did sign up for the webpros site this weekend. it took like an hour and a half but the response was fairly quick. i was suprised since it was the weekend. it was worth the time it took to fill out their form and get my thumbnails together.

    i was a little intimidated by their form. (they screen you before they accept you.) and i started to wonder if i would even get accepted. luckily i was and i recieved a request for a proposal shortly thereafter. i placed my first bid for a project this weekend. i can't believe how easy it was. and i was very impressed by the fact that they try to match your specific style and work to specific clients. if you havent taken a look you should. i don't know if i'll get the job i bidded on but you never know.




    also, is there a way to accept credit cards without having a merchant account? can you just take the number and info to your bank and have them process the transaction for you??

    does anyone know?

    I would have tried webpro, but it says that you need a portfolio, and I don't have one yet .

    Paypal or bCentral are two resources for merchant accounts which are very cheap..

    Also check you bank..you'd be surprised what they can offer..

    What about a search engine. The contractor could specify a price range, skills required (high design skills, asp, 3D, interaction etc), even design stlye or design application of the freelancer(crisp, futuristic, mod, corporate ID, decorative, popular(fad), cut'n'paste, gothic, simplistic, etc). And then the search could come up with a list of links to the matches.

    What do you think? I love the idea!
