I have been a part of Freelanced for three months, at first I thought it was simply another bid site. Instead it is more like a privatized Facebook for freelancers.
I find the site to be useful when connecting with over professionals, however it has yet to garner any contracts for me.
I am swiftly noticing that most of the freelancers on the site are graphic artists and cartoonists instead of writers.
I like it though and am continuing to plug away at.
