The average going rate is between $35 and $55 an hour, depending
on the project and your knowledge and your responsibilities. Some
people get more.
Since you are doing all aspects of the project all by yourself
and if you only bill for work performed (not your own learning
curve) then you should get closer to the $55 range. If you bill
straight time then closer to the $35 range.
