Some of our FZ readers know we’ve been at this for a while now…since 2002 we’ve been busily scribbling away on this site, writing about the writing life, but today is a first for us. I’m very happy to introduce our first new and permanent member of the Freelance Zone team, Sarah Skerrett.
I say “permanent” as in, not a guest blogger or featured article writer. She’s now one of us and will be sharing the benefit of her years in publishing and her experiences now as a full-time freelance writer. Her background includes pop culture/entertainment blogging, resume consulting, and currently Sarah’s developing her own celebrity gossip site with a Midwestern emphasis. She divides her time between writing, editing, and consulting projects. I’ll let Sarah properly introduce herself:
“As a freelancer without the years on my side, developing an identity based on my work thus far can feel quite daunting. I’m pleased to join Freelance Zone as a rookie freelancer, having worked publishing for six years, and will be posting about my own experiences embarking on a full-time freelance career. Immediate areas of discussion include navigating the freelance lifestyle while monitoring the good, bad, and ugly aspects of the life. Feel free to contact me with comments, questions, or projects via email, sarahskerrett [at] hotmail [dot] [com].”
I’m happy to welcome Sarah to the Freelance-Zone.com team. Please take a moment to welcome her and say hello! I look forward to her posts in the weeks to come!
