It can be hard meeting others when working for yourself. In order to learn from other freelancers, I've created a community of like-minded people with different skills who can help answer questions and give specific insight. It also includes a categorized list of additional resources that you can access when you need them. Whether you're just getting started or wanting to improve in a specific area, you will be able to find others who can help.
Writing is an important part of communicating as a professional, whether you get paid to or not. Medium.com makes it easy to draft articles, receive feedback, and publish/share your work with others. You'll have access to our OpenStudio publication, a collection of articles written for freelancers, by freelancers. You'll also have the opportunity to submit your own work to be included on our publication.
