Freelance Friday Celebrates Wade Atkinson and the 10 Things you don’t know (and probably didn’t need to know) about him.


In an effort to promote the website, we have started Freelance Friday.  The purpose is to promote the freelancers on the site so as to gain more attention for them and the others trying to get hired.  So, from now on, when a freelancer on the site provides us with a blog post, we will promote it on a Friday. 

Today, we are featuring Wade Atkinson, the latest addition to   Wade lives and works in Seattle and is available to work remotely as well.  As expected, his profile is a fun read.  I loved how he described himself as a a leather craftsman, button maker, bicycle polo player, and a reasonably big nerd.  I have only met Wade a few times, but he has always made me laugh.

To learn more about Wade, be sure to read on.  And,  if you think  his post is interesting or the site is helpful, please do share it and let your art producer friends know about this new resource.  And, if you do share it, let us know that you have done so.  We have a little something for you to say thank you.
