The State of Fulltime Freelancer's Work, 2011

I reported last week on some of the results of the 2011 Freelance Income Survey. Today, let's take a look at what types of work we're doing. With 191 results in (remember, you can still take the survey or ask your freelancing friends to), here's the type of work freelancers are performing for clients today. (The question asked what types of work did you paid to do in 2010/first six months of 2011):

Compared to last year's results, fewer freelancers are writing for consumer magazines and more are writing for the web and blogging for pay. (I'll post soon about blogging for bucks, and why you should.)

Of course freelancers are doing other jobs for pay, too. I'll report on the "other" types of work we're making money from--you may come away with some great ideas for your freelance career.
