Freelance Writing Jobs for February 11, 2010

So as of Wednesday evening, we’ve been socked with a foot of snow and another five to ten inches expected over night. Part of me is thankful I have a job that enables me to stay inside during such weather, and part of me wishes I could take a snow day too.

Freelance Writing Jobs for February 10, 2010

Good morning, Freelance Writing Jobs community. School is canceled for today and possibly tomorrow, thanks to the impending blizzard, so I’m working ahead on Tuesday night. Another reminder of how it’s good to have a backup plan in place for every situation. That isn’t to say I can’t work when my son is at home, just that it’s harder to get as much done. Besides, I may want to go outside and do some sledding or have a snowball fight. Wherever you are I hope you’re warm and dry. Check in and tell us what’s going on in your neck [Read more…]

Where is everyone in the Freelance Writing Jobs community located? You don’t have to give specifics, but a general region. My son and I are geography buffs and I’ve been thinking about maptacking the FWJ community as part of  project for him. Were you caught in the blizzard this weekend?
