  9. Freelancing is working for others and can be a great method to start earning from the first day itself. The only requirement is our skills and the working platform is provided by those sites you mentioned in the end.

    Whereas blogging is working for yourself, but it takes some time to establish a readership and start earning from your blog.

    This is the basic difference in freelancing and blogging in terms of time and money. Because of this I have seen that many people start an online career with freelancing and some of them do get to great heights with it.

    I have a friend who has started a blog but it not getting any success with it. Actually he is an impatient person 🙂 I will share this post with him.

    Hopefully he gets all these precious knowledge!

  17. Hi Nirmala,

    This post is full of valuable information for anyone wanting to explore freelancing. I think one of the challenges in the first instance is to get some good reviews of your work, which will make it easier for you to get further jobs and also enable you to charge a reasonable rate. I think one of the problems with freelancing is that the pay can sometimes be very poor and you have to be careful not to under-sell your skills.

    Thanks for this – especially the trouble you’ve gone to in providing all those links!
