Just a cool thing I found that I thought I would share:
Up until recently, most of the work I’ve done has been a flat, by the project, rate. Now that I’m doing some crochet tech editing and graphics work, I need to keep track of how much time I spend on each project because I bill by the hour. I did some looking around, and found Toggl.
Toggl allows me to time track fairly easily. It only took me about 3 minutes of playing around to figure out how it works. I’m using the website version, but Toggl also has a downloadable desktop version, native iPhone and Android apps (sigh. I have a blackberry), and ways to incorporate it into google gadgets and chrome browsers, etc. The website version works well for me since I always have at least 4 browser tabs open at a time, anyways.
They have a Pro plan for $5 a month, but I’m finding that the free version is really all I need for now.
