The vast majority of freelancers don’t need those, and … read more

Why You Should Publish Your Freelance Writing Rates

In my review of David Rodeck’s professional website, one of the things I suggested was to publish his freelance writing rates (or, at the very least, remove the Rates page that really only had payment terms).
