Hey snarke, Welcome to NB
Its quite late and i have to go to bed so i didn't have much time to check your sites.
I checked your personal blog :
Being a SEO the first thing i noticed is you have a 3+ year old PR3 dofollow blog running on wordpress.
Ok, the look of your blog says you are a girl. The design is quite nice but as far as optimization and ease-of-use is concerned, its not upto the mark.
#Sidebars are not properly segregated, so it looks like one big single sidebar.
#There's no title tag in your header (Add the following to your header file before the </head> section
<title>Snarke's Blog OR any thing</title>
#No Navigation(there's no suitable place i can click to back to the mainpage from an article-page) - add a link leading to your homepage from your logo.
Well, i know you wanted help in something else, i.e. freelancing, sorry for going off-topic here. Above are just my suggestions
As far as freelancing is concerned, i'll be honest : sticking to one forum will never help.
Be a part of atleast 2 of the top forums.
I'd suggest :
Not too sure about V7N and Sitepoint(haven't been there)
