Welcome to the Blog. So... What Should We Talk About?
Since I closed up shop on my fashion blog a little more than a year ago, I have been looking for a place to share my thoughts. Not about style anymore, per se (although that's certainly part of what I do), but about writing. About the process. About this crazy ride that is freelance writing.
A lot of people have come to me over the past couple years to ask me how I got into freelancing, and how they might be able to do it, too. I've never quite known how to answer. I've tried, but what resulted was a muddled and oversimplified version of the real deal. There was so much to say on the topic. It's so vast, so expansive, and always a little different for everyone.
But I'm going to do my best to finally come up with a suitable answer. My answer is this blog.
I know there are a lot of writing blogs out there, blogs about freelancing, and they are phenomenal. I read them. I admire what those writers have built. But my blog? We're going to do things a little differently. We're going to make this blog a fun ride.
I don't want my site to read "business-y," because I think you can find that elsewhere. I'd rather it be like a chat with friends about a topic we're passionate about: writing. Aren't those the best conversations? I think it'll make for a great blog experience, too.
With that in mind, I want to leave you with one question: What do you want to talk about? Seriously. I don't want to be the long-winded friend who doesn't let anyone else get a word in! You pick the topics; I will discuss with you. Sound cool? Leave me a comment.
Thank you for joining me. I'm so excited to chat!
