Before I took my blog-break there was a little prize draw here to win a copy of the fantastic freelancing ebook How to Be a Rockstar Freelancer. Of course now I need to announce a winner!
As Collis allowed me to give away more than one copy and seeing as there were 49 entrants I have decided to award three lucky chrisg.com readers.
I always feel guilty that there can be so few winners. Hopefully I can find a way to offer more prizes in future.
If you are a freelancer and you missed out you would do well to start 2008 with a purchase of the book, it is very good.

“Give something away for free.
I don’t mean “work for free” (though you might like to do that in order to get yourself known), I mean create
something self-contained that can be downloaded for free. If you’re a developer, write some software and make it a free download. Write a free ebook (like Chris’s free ebook for subscribers), or make a free blog template. Oh, and write a blog. If you have free content that relates to what you do, people will visit your website, and maybe add a link. More links = better search rankings, and more traffic. More traffic = more potential clients.
Converting potential clients into actual paying clients is beyond the scope of this comment”
