    I think number 1 and 4 should be the same tab, but I agree with your entire post. As a web designer, I’ve had to outsource to other designers to fit tight schedules and to juggle lots of clients.

    We all have our capabilities. If the client is asking beyond our capabilities then we should try to outsource it. Outsourcing just because you have taken more than you could handle is just plain stupidity.You are shortchanging your clients.

    hi! i knew a Freelancer and have faced all the problems you mentioned in the articles. There are a lot of people on the net who have a couple of dollars and an idea. Most of these buyers post the project on freelancers sites in an anticipation that the project will go perfectly and they will get the program of their dreams despite a very restricted budget.

    I feel very sorry about those Indian Freelancers who get trapped with buyers, who are good at describing a project’s requirements in 3 lines on a freelancer’s site and then turning it to 3 pages eventually.

    Anyways, thats really a good effort from you.

    Keep writing.
