On Being a Freelancer – Wendy Rose Gould

I was lucky enough to speak to Wendy for a chat on her experiences of being a freelance writer. As a successful lifestyle writer and photographer, her work has been featured in print and online for Glamour Magazine, Yahoo! Huffington Post, USA Today and eHow, to name a few. She was also the style editor […]

E-xciting

Elance, or Elance oDesk as it’s now calling itself, feels vaguely familiar when I logged back in on Saturday. The same type of jobs were on the jobs board and the same type of people were going for them. On each job, on average, was roughly 14 proposals. That’s 14 other people vying for the work. […]

Putting Pen to Paper

The way we make a living from writing has changed dramatically over the couple of decades. Before, writers were found at the library in paperback format or the books could be bought from a newly formed Amazon. But today, we are overwhelmed by the digital age of social media, ebooks and self-publishing. The quest for […]

Car’dor

Dear you and everyone else, I laid in bed last night and I was thinking how amazing ‘car’dor’ would be for a blog title. I know I am losing the plot by laying in bed on a Saturday night thinking about what I am going to blog about next. The reason for the weird title […]

Penny for the Poor

Dear you & everyone else, I think this week has been the worst week in the history of weeks. I’ve had arguments with people I hold most dear and I think I’ve pretty much lost the plot. It all started really well after the weekend, I had my friend Alex come over from Spain and […]

Has it really been that long?

This summer has gone particularly fast – I was at work today (I work opposite Argos) and the amount of freshers streaming out of there with their new duvet sets was insane! They also made me feel very old as they looked so innocent, dorky & like they had never been away from home before. […]

Boggle Eyed: Are Graduates Realistic Enough?

You’d think now that University had finished I’d have both eyes glued to books and forgetting the world around me, well, thats how I’d planned it but it hasn’t worked out that way! As I recently posted on grads.co.uk, it’s hard at the moment to find a semi-decent job after finishing University, particularly in an […]

An ironic tribute to The Beatles

It’s hard to believe where the time has gone this year. It only feels like yesterday that it was New Years Eve and I was quite happily watching the Harry Potter box set with my other half. Now, we are in March. I’m supposed to ‘march’ on and choose a career path that is right […]

It’s like that, is it?

It’s been an odd few months here in my household, as the time is fast approaching where I am finishing University and life is going to have to go one way or another. I’m getting a lot of unnecessary pressure from my parents to make a decision, and lo and behold, they want me to […]
