I owe my current position as owner of my own online business to Elance.
I started out with them at http://www.elance.com/experts/estherrosie
Although the blogs don't come thick and fast when they do they are absolute gems.
Elance is great site for those starting out. There are loads of useful tutorials and articles you really should read before even considering embarking on this sort of 'job'.
