Freelancing link list
#1
UPDATED  20.10.2016
Hello everybody ! Me and a couple of friends got together and tried to help each other out on the subject of freelancing, later we made a blog where we post useful links for contracts, finding jobs etc.   We decided to share it with everybody, because starting with freelancing is stressing and it sucks to find everything on your own.

So lets share useful links here. Links regarding  finding work, info about contracts or whatever on the subject of freelancing.

  I don't want to take all the credit for the list bellow so big thanks to :
Gabriela Borta , Gabby Taylor, Lorena Lammer, Milen Dimitrov, Piotr Kupsc, Waclaw Wysocki.
Anastasia C MasOen, Alex Negrea ,Amit Dutta ,Nathan Park, Dennis Holmgren and Piotr Jasielski,
