A Freelancer guide to making money and outsourcing online

I did create this blog to act as a Freelancer guide to making money and outsourcing online, to help employers and freelancers to find their way through the various freelance services and challenges. I have started out as a freelancer 8 years ago to make money online and I did outsource quite some of the work I am not proficient in and I have come a long way since.  You can expect to get a lot of content over the next few days. Just to list a few topics that will be covered :
