Hi everyone! I’m thinking of making the jump from being an office-bound web developer to freelancing instead. I was hoping to talk to some of you who do freelance web dev while living a nomadic lifestyle.
I’m at a bit of a loss, because when I’ve tried looking for posts about this kind of lifestyle, the majority of what I’ve found is for web designers or Wordpress developers, which are both pretty different from being a developer who likes to work with React or whatever other framework.
So for those of you who are living my dream right now:
Are you usually building Wordpress sites, or more often using a framework like React or Ruby on Rails? Or something else entirely?
What types of contracts do you take on? Ecommerce? Building blogs?
Are they on-going, or one-off projects?
How do you get clients while on the road? Is it mostly Upwork or word of mouth?
I have a ton of questions, and would greatly appreciate hearing about your experiences. Thank you!
