Guess what? The final instalment of the FITS series has arrived. The “Freelancer In The Spotlight” today is… me, Lorraine Reguly, the woman behind Wording Well!
I thought it would be kinda neat to feature myself, since I’ve been offline for a while (SORRY ABOUT THAT!).
It’s been about a month since I published anything, but in today’s post, I’ll tell you WHY . There are a few valid and important reasons. I’ll also reveal what it means TO ME to be a freelancer (the good AND the bad).
Plus, I’ll update you on what’s been going with me (health-wise and family-wise), as well as my plans for the next few months.
I Took Time Off For the Entire Summer!
First of all, I took a much-needed vacation this summer, as I had been blogging (basically, twice a week) for the past 2+ years without a break!
Creating your own hours is one of the perks when you’re a freelancer.
Of course, you need to take into consideration your clients’ needs first.
Fortunately for me, my clients understood that I needed a break. I haven’t really had an extended vacation for quite some time!
Unfortunately, my summer wasn’t as great as I thought it was going to be…
It had its ups and downs. On the plus side, I read A LOT of books (a luxury for me!) and I spent a lot of time at the outdoor public pool with my nephew, whom I taught to swim!
I also re-connected with one of my best friends from when I was a teenager, and spent a lot of time with her. We went to the fair together, took in a hypnotist show, and began visiting one another as well as started going for walks together. The pic below is one I took when we were at the fair; they were selling T-shirts with funny sayings on them, and I thought that this one metaphorically “fit” me (I LOVE KETCHUP!!!).
On the downside, however, I got bad news about my health. Oddly, it might be because I, indeed, put Ketchup on my Ketchup!
