Happy anniversary to me!

By Katharine Swan On Wednesday, October 21, 2009 At 2:55 PM

I just realized that today is an important anniversary for me: Exactly four years ago, I was working my very last day at my job as a full-time technical writer. I was quitting to follow the next stage of my dreams: to freelance full-time.

Four years later, I'm still at it, and it's going pretty well (if I do say so myself). Despite the recession, I have still been pretty busy, and it even looks like I'll beat last year's income by $1,000 or so.

I found out this morning from Kathy Kehrli's blog that yesterday was a new holiday: the National Day on Writing. Too bad they didn't make it today instead — that would have been perfect! In any case, I'm celebrating by sitting at home in my pajamas (something I don't often do), working on a couple of deadlines. A combination of the weather (light rain and snow) and my deadlines kept me from heading out to the barn this morning, which is why I'm around to celebrate my four-year anniversary of freelancing full-time!

Happy anniversary to me — and may there be many more!

Happy Anniversary! Belated, but no less well meant.

Happy (Late) Anniversary!

Isn't it almost impossible to imagine going back to employee status now?

Keep on truckin'!
