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.

let me know what you think
let me know if you think it sounds like a good thing. i'm new 2 this. i've been thinking about trying to pick up some freelance work but not really sure how to go about it.
by the way, Agent Coop
is your handle from 'Twin Peaks'? -just curious. and my log wants 2 know.
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!
heres a link to a discussion happening in the lounge at the moment - it has a huge list of websites for jobs...
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?
did anyone else try the webprosnow.com site and how is it working out for you? i am curious.
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..
