Some people quit their daytime job to become a freelancer. And some start as a freelancer. I am of the second type. Computer is one of the most important thing in my everyday life and may be this is the best place I ever been- to sit infront of my PC desk.
Hobby or Profession?
So, I grew my career from my hobby towards a better career in web development and learnt lot of things working as an WordPress developer. In this 2 years career I have learnt Photoshop, Dreamweaver, basic html to PHP editing and I am still going on the learning process.
The best thing I love about doing freelancing work is –
-The time management in my own way.I can work anytime and any number of hours until I feel tired. And most of the time I work at night because it’s cool and calm at that time. Before I quit working and turn off my PC in the morn, (if I am not too much sleepy) I do watch movies to give my brain some rest.
-Do I work everyday? Nope, someday I stuck on YouTube watching tutorials or interesting videos and wasted the whole night on -browsing blogs and commenting on some. I do learn from every task I am on. this is the better part. The longer you will stay with your laptop or PC- the longer the information world will be infront of you.
-Do I blog regularly? I would love to, but I can’t. I have around 5 blogs and most of the time it is not possible for me to update them in weeks or even months. Some week I have so pressure from my work that I totally forgot to provide any update. I was accepting guest post for the blogs for sometime, but I saw the guest posts are not that much useful to my readers. So, now I stopped accepting them, except the paid one.
I do not live from my blogging- but I know I can do that someday. As a blogger I have always an intention to learn more and this was the inspiration for me to learn the web-Design and become a freelancer.
Now-a-days there are lot’s of Bangladeshi freelancers trying to rise but get lost in the web- just searching for quick money. Well for all of them:
শুধুমাত্র একটি ব্লগ তৈরি করে এবং গুগল এডস্যান্স এর এড দিয়ে অর্থ উপার্জন করা খুব কঠিন। নিজস্ব কন্টেন্ট এবং ওয়েবে মার্কেটিং এর অভিজ্ঞতা না থাকলে আপনার পুরো সময়টাই বেকার যাবে। তার থেকে আপনি freelancing শিখুন।
This is the best way to earn money online. You can learn about web business and earn as an entrepreneur. After my 4 years as a web-geek, now I can say- I do know how to earn online.
I am earning as a Bangladeshi and If I can do- then why you can’t? I am enjoying my life as a freelancer.
I do hate dolancer. Dolancer is not a freelancing site. it’s an online MLM or PTC site. Just leave that and go build your career online.
