As a blogger and freelance writer, I discovered that I needed a good bookkeeping solution to help when the time came to do my taxes. Due.com is really the answer to the needs of a blogger who also freelances a bit on the side. It is an easier solution than anything else I have seen and yet it covers the needs that some other solutions miss (i.e. PayPal only).
Imagine this: Launch day has come. Over the past couple of weeks, you’ve been excitedly preparing for the launch of your blog, and today is the day. You wake up, rush to your computer, and quickly log on to your freshly launched blog, and….
Crickets. Nothing. Nobody leaving comments on your blog posts. Hardly any traffic at all. And your email service provider is showing a big fat zero where you wanted to see dozens of new subscribers.

If you’re a newer blogger, the thought of hiring team members for your blog may have never crossed your mind.
