I’ve neglected this blog for a while now… and I really have no excuse. Sure, I am busy with client work — but there has been plenty of times where I was really busy and I still managed to keep active on the blog! Last fall I had a crazy rushed project and I not only balanced the huge load of work with a steady blogging schedule, I turned the process into a whole series!
I think part of what has made me loose momentum with the blog is that I feel like I’m almost tapped out of subjects to cover! (I’m sure this isn’t true, but it feels true) If you haven’t been following the CMD+Shift Design blog over the last 2 and a half years, check out the archives on Freelancing— I think there are some real gems about freelancing here!
Today I was thinking about what the blog has been in the past ( a sort of freelancers guide) and how part of what discourages me is some of the BIG boy freelance blogs have multiple writers and huge communities that I just can’t match… and I don’t want to honestly…
This blog has never really been something that I aimed to be a FreelanceSwitch.com or FreelanceFolder.com — I’ve always through of it more as being about just one woman’s experience in being a freelancer, small business owner, entrepreneur…. and one woman web design studio! I share what I learn and what I think and hopefully it may help out some of those freelancers just starting out or be a resource for those who are experiencing the same things that I am in their small business. So… on this note, I am going to make a commitment to reclaim this blog and let it be what it is, and I’m starting this process by stating that I will start to do one blog post a week (usually on Friday – i think) where I just talk about some of the stuff going on in my business… stuff I am learning, stuff I need to learn, stuff I am thinking about, worrying about etc.
So… here we go!
