I know I'm prolific on Facebook - and I know people judge me by that. Which is fine because that is what I choose to put out there and be judged by.
Facebook is what I show you and you have every right to form an opinion about who I am because of that. (But do be gentle.)

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, ...

+Deborah Ng I don't think of you as a cranky pants--but then I've been following your writing for a long time.
