Hello dear readers,
First off, what a corny, weird title for a blog post! Someone should really talk to me about that privately. Sheesh!
Secondly, I’m still working out the kinks in scheduling (ok, writing) my blog posts so that I can provide you with weekly content that’s useful, funny, and self-deprecating all at the same time. It’s kind of a delicate balance and you’ll forgive me for not meeting the deadline last week. I could have told you I was revamping my schedule and decided to start pushing my blog posts on Mondays instead of Fridays, (which is technically true), but let’s not split hairs here. You’re better than that. I’m not, but you probably are.
What I really wanted to share with you is something unexpected and wonderful I discovered about being a freelance writer. Since launching my business mere weeks ago, I have learned that while freelancing has its cons (no “borrowing” office supplies from the supply closet), one of the best pros is that the freelance world is filled with people who sincerely want you to succeed and are willing to share their knowledge with you. The best example of this is my newest gal pal, Chandi Gilbert.
Chandi (like Shandy) was one of the first people to reach out to me on a FB group designed specifically for freelance writers and she is AMAZING! According to her bio, she’s equal parts Liz Lemon and Leslie Knope which is kind of like being a superhero in my book. (Note to self: Develop book on how ordinary people are really superheros. I’m sure this hasn’t been done before).
I wanted not only to promote her because she’s a great person, but because her skills are on fleek. (Sidenote: are we still saying fleek? I need to check in with my tween on that one…) Anyhoo – please check out her latest blog post that answers the ultimate question, Can You Be a Freelancer?
If you like what you read, give her a follow on social media or consider her for a freelance writing gig. I know you’ll love her as much as Leslie Knope loves whipped cream. Which is also how much I like her, too.
Until next week (probably)
