Creative Jobs This Week
A couple of things before you get into these creative and freelance jobs…
First, this list will start including contests.
I considered a separate list but sometimes I only see a few and sometimes I don’t see any, so I’ve decided creative jobs and contests can cohabitate happily together. This week there is only one contest.
Second, there will be a post each week providing basic answers to questions y’all have. A lot of people are looking for info that generally I wouldn’t think to devote a post to. For example, someone asked me what a 1099 is, which I’ll cover next week.
I plan to make the responses brief but comprehensive. So depending on how long a response is, I may do up to three for that week. Feel free to leave What is… How do I… Where can I find… or those type of questions in the comments section of any article or social media post (my accounts are above right).
Now, dig in and be prosperous.
