Performancing Metrics

A Frantic Freelancer: Snook

Jonathan Snook has posted about his change to becoming a freelancer almost a year ago, and what that change has meant to his life. A really important read for those thinking of going pro with blogging, design, or coding on their own.

By mid-September, I was starting to feel burnt out. I was eight months into this and, while I’ve had the opportunity to work on some fun projects, I found myself still unable to work on my own things. I was no further ahead with some of my ideas than I had been in January.

I was also finding less and less time to work on the blog, which I felt and still feel, the need to post to consistently. The blog has been my sales and marketing. I haven’t had to make sales calls or answer RFP’s or do pitches. People have either just come across the site or I’ve gotten work through referrals. If anybody asks if running a personal site like this can be worthwhile, let me be the first in line to say yes. I’m sure many of the freelancers out there would agree.

A great post from a great guy. I wish him all the best, and I’d love the BloggingPro readers to show their support and consideration.
