Too many people expect me to work for free lately...

    Or like musicians! "Can you play at my party? What, you want to get paid? Don't you like playing music?"

    I get the analogy, and heard similar things for different creative fields (design, illustration...).

    The fact is that there is now a plethora of webdevs (I don't say good ones). The learning curve used to be low: no need to go to an expensive school with long studies, just get a computer with internet. And by definition the market is global : freelancing platforms cut down the prices a lot.

    So until you have a well-defined niche, or a pool of clients you already know well, potential customers often have the high hand when negotiating...

    you can go find another doctor, maybe you'll find one that will give you some lopsided breast and a ponoko nose. or you can pay me for it and get what you want

    @lesniall that's just about what I say when I'm asked to work for free, their next question is usually if I would work for equity, then I say why would I do that when if I wanted to I could write it myself and take all the profit. then they either drop the free work, pay me, or say good day
