I’ve had a difficult time finding a job that suits what I want to be involved with. I no longer like the job I have right now, and the fact that I’m beyond part time is enough to drive me over the edge. Right now I am a possible candidate to freelance for a local web design firm. Essentially that is what got me to thinking that I should really dive back into freelance designing, since it’s something that I obviously enjoy.
Yesterday I spent the better part of my night e-mailing potential clients that were looking for web design services. Eight e-mails were sent out, and so far I had one reply back today. Though I really won’t go into it too much, but the reply I got back just screamed pyramid scheme. This guy wanted to start a click-and-mortar store on Second Life, and then I would go on my own to earn a substantial amount of money. I scoffed and then kindly told him I wasn’t interested, to which he then replied back trying to justify his idea. Eh.
Either way I’m actually working on a portfolio right now. Sad thing is that most of my work I’ve lost over the years from countless random reformats and the fact that I probably threw away my floppy disks that had some of them saved to. I’ve got a few I can salvage right now.
I also have an idea that involves whmcs.com and templates. I’m going to wait until Mark comes over to talk to him more about it, but I think that he’ll like the idea I’ll propose to him. Either way I really want to just get some work done to bring in money, and just have something to do on a daily basis, that I enjoy and won’t drive me absolute bonkers.
