Freelancing with kids, having a freelance partnership, and some stereotypes – Link Roundup for February 2012

Here are a few of the more interesting freelancing articles we’ve spotted this month:

NaldzGraphics has this post on some Stereotypes About Freelance Designers. Apparently, freelance designers get enough sleep and aren’t as stressed as I thought.

Freelance Folder has an interesting article on The Pros and Cons of a Freelancing Partnership. If you’ve ever considered partnering up with another freelancer, it’s worth a read.

PolicyBee has a well-designed infographic called “A Peep Into Freelancing”. Some interesting facts:

  • 19% of freelancers plan to take on employees
  • The biggest challenge freelancers face is finding clients
  • 3 out of 10 freelancers spend less time freelancing than their full-time counterparts

Freelancing with kids also seems to be a hot topic, since both Graphic Design Blender and 5 Cities 6 Women have written posts about what it’s like to be a freelancer with children.
