    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 forums.guru3d.com is an active forum with active members and may be someone has some experience working as a freelance web designer. May be "Hardware Reviews and News" 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.

    A lot of people are actually turning to stripping and prostitution and making a lot more than rent and groceries.

    Best thing to day is advertise your services to a host of companies.
    Complete an (online) portfolio for them to see.

    In this economic bag o shat time, companies need to reduce overheads whilst maintaining advertising presence and the web is a great way to do it, so put the idea in their heads!!

    Its not much, but I hope it helps

    I hope I'm not replying to a spambot, but what about website administration? What country are you in?
