It is official, I am stressed.

After been fairly busy for the last couple of months things seemed to have cooled off somewhat. Wondering if anybody has any good site suggestions to find work ? I know about the board here, eLance.com, Ants.com and all of the major ones but looking for others that would be good resources !
Perhaps we could create a list for the full-time designers to use - trying not to totally compete against one another :(. I have done quite a few sites - even written a chapter for one of the 'Friends of ED' books, but the workload surely isn't what I would like it to be.....

Tried all of these, thanks !

But, not having a lot of luck. Think that I may actually need to start posting here a lot more and helping others out ;), other than just reading, could give me some good credit !

Any other tips ??

Thanks Again.

Try doing some research on some local companiues that you would enjoy doing a website for. Send them a letter of introduction telling them who you are and what you do. If you have a cd rom even better, include that with the letter, then follow up a couple of days later and ask for an appointment to discuss the possibilities.
For people that you have done a sit for stay in contact, ask for refferals.
Business doesnt just come to you, you have to create your own opportunities and doors will open...stay positive and forget the stress, that won't help.
Good Luck
