    I need an advice

    Hello!
    I'm new here. I've been browsing tons of forums for an idea of what to do. I was laid off from my job about 3 month ago. I've been looking for a job since then, but did not even get a single interview. I worked as a web designer for a publishing company for the last 5 years. Looks like www.tailfeathersnetwork.com is an active forum with active members and may be someone has some experience working as a freelance web designer. May be "Talk to Tailfeathers" category is not the most appropriate for this question, but I want to try anyways to get some opinions before I go ahead with my life. I'm wondering if it is possible in the current economy to find work for a freelance web designer and make enough to pay for rent and groceries. I was able to find a small project on craigslist and I developed a website for a company. It was a small project and took me only a week to complete. I got paid $800 for 1 week of work which is not bad. Please people give me some ideas. I have 2 kids and my wife is out of work as well. Thank you in advance.

    My bff just started doing free lance web desgine. He has been doing it for about a year now. the most he makes in a month is about $500 he has poored every spare moment of time in to makeing his freelanceing work, and sadly it is just not doing it for him. He lives with his parents and works doing the freelance work about 40 to 60 hours a week. I think the best thing for you to do now is to get a full time job doing something, even if it is flipping burgers, and then have your freelanceing supplement your other income. I realy dont think you can make it with just the freelancing alone. I am sorry to be the one to tell you this.

    I realy hope you can do it, but with what i have seen from my friends, i dont beleve it is possable in todays market.

    Vegas it the place most web designers are finding jobs so you might want to consider looking there and possable relocateing if you find something.
