Help me fuel my Starbucks addiction through freelancing!

What are some good sites to find short-term freelance writing/Internet gigs? Similar to this post, I'm looking for some temp work that will bring in a little supplemental income.

I've been using Mechanical Turk for a few weeks, and have made some nice pocket change, but I'd like something a bit more substantive (and, of course, better paying).

A lot of the freelance boards seem to focus on more full-time/daytime contract work, which won't work for me. I have a full-time job and would like something to work on during the evenings and weekends.

An ideal situation would be a site where I could view some projects, bid/accept them, and work a few hours/days to finish a product for $25-$50. My background is in writing and editing, but any type of broad IT-related jobs (IA, usability, blogging) would also be good.

You mention working "a few hours" to make $25, which sounds like Elance to me. There's also Guru or Freelance Switch.

You're looking for Freelance Writing Jobs, methinks. It aggregates job listings from all over the Net and is run by respected folks.

I'm favoriting this as I'm in the same boat. I'll also check out the links in the post you referenced.
