My friend, Jeanne Erdmann, and her friend, Siri Carpenter, have a blog that I have listed on the blogroll here on my site. But I really have to sing its praises.

You will also soon find on their site a resource many of you future free-lancers will find valuable: It’s a database of killer queries. They’re soliciting submissions right now, so check back later for those. They will help you write your own.
