I’m back—at least for now!

My goodness! It’s been ages since I’ve written a post on this blog.

Apologies for the long radio silence. At first I thought life as a freelance professional would be extremely difficult. Can you imagine not making enough income to get by? drumming on every door for some kind of work until a door finally opens? nagging your colleagues, asking them to keep an ear to the ground for any developments? hoping to receive as many projects possible to avoid famine at the end or beginning of each month? Well over the past two years, work picked up—and it picked up quickly. As time went on, I discovered I wasn’t putting much time into blogging and other volunteer activities.

Fortunately, I am in a better place today. Consequently, new and existing clients and suppliers are aware that I am gradually reducing my workweek to four days. In so doing, I hope to strike the right balance between paid projects and volunteer-driven responsibilities, including writing posts for blogs.

If all goes well, I should be blogging at least once every other week. Given that my work isn’t solely dedicated to copy editing and translation these days, I am likely to create another blog that will focus on the language industry and other related—or non-related—topics. Stay tuned for updates.

For the moment, I am glad to have finally returned to writing something on this page.

In closing, I wish all my followers a happy 2020! I hope the year has started on the right foot so far.
