All I can say, after 13 years as an independent is that you charge whatever you can get. In some cases this will be a good rate, in others a bad one. You have to be willing to adjust.

Check the agency Ads for ideas (remembering that the they take anything from 30 - 50% of the charged rate) of what rates apply in your area. For example I saw an Ad on DICE for a Long Island based VFP Programmer on 6 month contract at $40.00 per hour - gotta figure the real charge rate there is at least $80!
