Freelance Unleashed interview
Head on over there and give their blog a look. It's a new site, but seems like they're stockpiling some pretty quality content about promoting yourself as a freelancer and getting your freelance career started.
It's a Rails / Ember.js software package that they're offering paid support and hosting plans for. It'll be interesting to see if this model takes off. Definitely something I'll be keeping an eye on.
Anyone who runs a SaaS knows that there are a ton of "list your app" type sites out there. The quality of them is generally pretty poor - but I've recently discovered Best Vendor and I'm enjoying it.
They've put together a quality design, and added a social aspect of reviewing and sharing about products you use. I went there originally to make a profile page for Cashboard but ended up sticking around.
The "lists" feature they have going seems to ride the wave of those "Top 10 Apps To Do (something)" posts you see on popular blogs.
Awesome Cashboard review
It's wonderful to see people taking notice of the app and appreciating all the hard work I've put in. Definitely a great way to end the week.
