What "Work from home" sites would you recommend?
I am especially interested in personal experience from freelancers and home workers.
It depends on what your skills are, but you can sign up on Odesk.com or elance.com and sell your services.
It definitely depends on the types of things you're interested in doing. I've been a full-time freelance writer since 2007, and got my biggest kick forward on Elance. It's still a ton of work to get your foot in the door, but that's the site that generated the most high-quality clients for me. By high-quality, I mean the ones who are still with me, and a couple of them have recommended me to more great clients just like them. That said, Elance recently re-worked everything on there -- I hit a slow spot last month and decided to look around, and couldn't seem to find much worthwhile.
Other than that -- I actually made more money on Helium last year than in everything else combined. It wasn't open-submission stuff, though, it was their custom content side -- I was recruited for that a couple years ago, but they're accepting applications for it now last I heard. If you want to write for a living, you may also be surprised at how many big content and news sites will accept applications.
Are you a freelance writer? If so I use Elance, but also have sold work on Constant-Content. I don't care for 0desk, too under priced on everything. You have to wade through a lot of crap on Elance too, but I've found several good paying clients that I've kept working for regularly. I would also suggest if applicable, using websites that allow you to build a free portfolio and/or developing a website of your own to highlight your work and advertise. I get clients that way as well.
Kindly read my hub pages on :

2) Writing Jobs,
3) Work at home jobs,
4) Experience with work at home scams
5) Everything about online tutoring
I'm sure you might get an idea on the various work at home options and sites. Thanks

Would you recommend Elance to other writers? Why or why not?

I have been browsing many of the articles rating and comparing sites like Elance and oDesk [i know they are merging], and read about many of the likes, and dislikes of each. What i'd love to find out, and share with the rest of the Hub community, is WHAT WOULD YOU IDEALLY LIKE TO SEE IN A FREELANCE...

Does anyone write for clients found on oDesk or Elance?I'm registered on both sites, but have yet to bid on any jobs. I'd love to hear from anyone with experience on these sites. Thanks!

I wanted to know of a place where I could find clients who needed websites created from scratch. All the freelance sites just have jobs for tweaking current websites. I'm a professional when it comes to creating sites from scratch. I'm creating a sample now for any of you to check out and once its...
