For this week's short share, I have an infographic for freelancers. This one looks at some of the pros and cons of freelancing, and it was presented by GraphicDesignDegreeHub.com.
While this was published back in 2013, I'm curious if you see if your own freelance careers are reflected in the data. Which side do you fall on? Did you get into freelance writing because you wanted to? Or did you start freelancing because you had to for some reason? Do you see more pros or cons in your case?
What surprises me the most here is the salary information. This is the first time I've seen surveyed freelancers report income that high -- 75% reporting that they earn $65k per year or more. I suspect the data includes more designers and other technical freelancers given how different the data is from what I've seen reported solely about writers (not that $65k isn't achievable for most freelance writers).
Check out the rest of the data and the pros and cons mentioned. Then leave a comment and tell me what you think about it.
