While social media is definitely a distraction for anyone who works on a computer (which would be almost everyone, right?), it really holds true for us freelancers and work at homers (I’m coining a new phrase!) who rely on the Internet to make a living. So why not add some Twitter accounts to help you get a leg up on your freelancing efforts?
If you need some help with finding people, you’re in luck! I’ve put together a list of the 10 best Twitter accounts for freelancers to follow from my own list of Twitter accounts:
Chock full of advice, FreelanceWritingJobs is also a great resource for, you guessed it, freelance writing gigs!

Anyone who has a blog should be following Darren Rowse, the founder of ProBlogger. It’s probably the top resource for bloggers, new and veteran alike, and it also has a job board that’s frequented by companies and people looking for bloggers.
