I was feeling a little bit ranty this morning.

Freelancing doesn't look like this.
While checking my Facebook feed a little while ago, I came upon this ad for Freelance Writing Riches: Screen Shot 2015-01-26 at 1.33.13 PM. Obviously the ad is from someone who wants to sell a lifestyle. However, it just adds to the misconception that freelancing is this easy, carefree, ...

I'm always there for my friends, but if I only hear from you when it's time to Like or share something, is that really a friendship?
So you have a new Facebook page to announce your latest whatever it is you're doing this week. Hey, I'm cool with that. I know that it sucks to create a social profile and have no one like it and I'm always happy to help my friends. Social media is a numbers game and no one wants to hang out on ...
