So far most of my freelancing has been of the sitting-in-cafes-and-‘networking’ variety. I was coping. However, the New Year and the new budgets that come with it in the Netherlands has thrown up a couple of clients and suddenly I’m working full time on projects for at least the next three months.
They’re great projects and great work with people who so far seem really cool as well. But it has caused a bit of a ripple in the old tempo-of-daily-life continuum. No time for surfing, lurking, or snarling at other bloggers via a comments pop-up. Ironically, while terribly busy all day with all things interactive and the whole process of creating effective communications for the web, I’m feeling a little cast adrift and isolatd with no idea of what everyone’s been up to.
Maybe I should increase my rates?
