    tldr:

    webflow. webflow. did I mention webflow? You should totally use webflow.

    And some other stuff for padding.

      Yeah, it's quite annoying that bloggers are posting their own articles on DN.

        Nothing wrong with that imho, however this article isn't about finding work, it's about Webflow. It's quite misleading and I don't think THAT should be here, not to mention oDesk is a terrible website.

        nothing wrong with submitting links to your own work/articles. Why do you find it annoying?

    Anybody who mentions Craigslist and Odesk (upwork) in a post about finding consistently high paying work is not a successful western freelancer. Sorry.

      This. The only thing Craigslist is good for is to get murdered.

      Odesk certainly agree. Craiglist, on the other hand, has proved to a valuable resource to finding some major clientele. It's kind of like a needle in a haystack but once you find an "actual" client who doesn't waste your time it's well worth the fuss.

      Check out some sites I use. I wrote a post about them. Some I'm sure you've heard of but pay attention to telecommuterjobs.net to filter only telecommute/remote based jobs on craigslist.

    This is a pretty decent article on how to begin looking for freelance work or trying to start out. However, networking is the way to get the high paying jobs. The face to face with serious people who can trust you with money is always the best way to go. Networking events, conferences and meetups are good to know people who may know others that need things done.
