  by:  |  Oct 18, 2009

Yesterday, we listed top freelance blogs that we think are useful to both full-time and part-time freelancers. To help you further open your doors to work opportunities and knowledge on freelancing, we came up with a list of five of the best freelance forums — those with wide communities, plenty of active threads and of course, loads of resources for tips, tools, and opportunities to earn more.

These freelancer forums maintain a good population of registered members so you’re sure to find plenty information. Each one comes complete with the basic forum features like news and updates, general forums and stats and much more.
