Here I’ll give you some useful web sites which can help you in your freelance business. This is not a complete directory or anythign like that. It contains only sites that I am using myself (or have used in the past) and have helped me a lot.
Web Development Tutorials
W3 Schools contains mostly basic, but very well written and easy to understand tutorials. On the site you will also find full references of all popular programming languages and technologies. There are also quizzes, examples and validators. It is really an awesome resource
A large depository of developer tutorials, some of them quite advanced
A small site containing few good tutorials on various topics
Web Design Tutorials
The best resource for Photoshop tutorials. Organized in categories, with user ratings, pictures and screenshots.
The Site Wizard
The site wizard has a lot to offer and their design section is not bad too
Free Web or Blog Hosting
The best free blog hosting service. You can create you blog, resume or portfolio completely free and get it spydered by the search engines fast
Another very well set place for free blog hosting
Absolutely Free Hosting
The free hosting are not reliable and often change. That’s why I selected for you a whole directory of them
Unfortunately not available for many countries. There are some ways to use paypal even if you are not in a listed country, but they may be costly and not always 100% legal
An excellent service, but unfortunately they are too particular in accepting credit cards (which makes them not so good for your potential buyers)
Again a very cool service with very low prices. But funding your e-gold account is expensive which will put off your clients, unless they already use e-gold
The most respected CC processor accepting worldwide clients. One time fee of $59 and you are ready to go
