In and out

I’m writing this in my second week as a fully self-employed person. How exciting.

I said goodbye to Learning and Teaching Scotland (who gave me a lovely send-off) at the end of February and am now a freelance website manager.

I’m staying on at Folksy and was down in Sheffield last week for a couple of days talking and planning. Lots of interesting work ahead. I’ve got some other work lined up, all very exciting and to be explained later. This is all quite flexible so I’m also looking for other opportunities and generally trying to find my feet in the world of self-employment. So if anyone needs anything done, or just wants to have a chat please get in touch. This is all new to me so I'd be really glad to hook up with other freelancers, even if it’s just to share experiences about how you manage your time etc.

I haven’t really felt like blogging much lately as I was juggling so many different things but life is starting to feel normal again for the first time in months.


Hurrah! Congrats on taking the plunge. I hope to follow suit one day. I look forwards to seeing what you do with Folksy too :)

Thanks Claire. I'm sure it won't be long for you, although how will the subtitling world cope?

Sounds very exciting, congratulations!

Fantastic! Looking forward to more blogging and new interests.

Thanks both.

I owe you an email Grainne. Will get in touch now I've got some spare time :)

I've been freelance for most of my working life, and I'd recommend it. So congratulations on taking the plunge, and good luck!

good luck with it all sweetie. just think of all those laptop in bed days you can forward to

Good luck! Though you've got the right mix of organisation and self-discipline to do it. Hope this means a book at some point.

Do what you love, love what you do!
Good luck for your new "self road"!
Greetings from Madrid.
