Beginner Freelancer, What kind of jobs do I look for?

Hello! I've made my own website and put a sample page on it. I'm wondering what kind of projects should I be looking for? I've been looking around Upwork and Outsource and i'm not really sure what kind of projects to be looking for, for a beginner. As well as how we get paid. I've also seen lots of wordpress jobs around there. I should probably learn wordpress as well right?

look for simple one pages you could do with simple html and css like landingpages. You could also ask friends if they need a website to get more involved in doing projects. Beside you should learn wordpress! Keep on hacking watch DevTips :) https://www.youtube.com/user/DevTipsForDesigners
