Lately I’ve been stricken with an unbeatable stress. It’s been seeping through my mind, and keeps me back from feeling other, positive thoughts. Lately, client work has been terrible. I am currently dealing with two clients who I think I am being under-paid for, and I’m really close to calling off the deal. This is also a humongous time for Blabber. With it almost being time for us to release it to the public, we’ve really had to work long and hard on finishing up the little things we didn’t get done earlier.

I really don’t know what to do. When you look at it, money is nice, but when you’re unhappy with the work you are doing, it’s not really worth it. And, in retrospect, I don’t even think I’m being paid the correct sum of money. I’m currently doing a case study section of a clients web design portfolio with some javascript effect for $20.00, and a total CMS recode for $75. I really think both prices are the result of me being kind.

I’m going to look into getting myself a portfolio. This will open me up to enough jobs to say, “Hey, I’ve got enough work right now that I can throw away the clients that are making me unhappy”. Right now, however, I think I really need this money, despite it being slightly less than $100, which I think is ridiculous.

Ah well, I guess when you think about it, I should just get these projects over with.

    Hey brad. Why don’t you just tell the clients that you think they should up the pay a bit? I think it would be worth it. You know? they should gladly do it. Btw, love the wordpress layout. Did you make it?

    I may have to, Trevor. Either that or just call it quits.
