Then, in June, while “netwalking” at the 3rd annual conference in Denver, Bryn Mooth, my excellent working partner and editor of HOW Magazine, and I cooked up an idea to expand the blog. We loved the energy of the conference so much that we thought we could bring that, or something close to it, online to be a real community.
So over the summer, we gave the blog a makeover. The new tagline sums it up: Business Advice and Inspiration for the Creatively Self Employed. We have enlisted a gaggle of bloggers, mostly creative freelancers—writers, designers, photographers and artists—working in the trenches, struggling with their finances, trying to find their target market, desperately seeking their ideal clients (and dealing with nasty clients), losing their favorite clients, and sometimes eating a frog or two.
So check it out, bookmark it, add it to your “RSS feed” and help us spread the word through Facebook, Twitter and any other medium of your choice.
