It hasn’t exactly been a secret, but I haven’t made it public until now—Simply Computing and I are parting ways. I had a great time working there, and I certainly learned a lot about retail, however, this is one of those times when the business timing just wasn’t quite there for everything to work out. No fault, no blame, just the harsh reality of economics.
Of course the inevitable, “So, what’s next for you?” question follows right on the heels of announcements of leaving a job, so I’ll tell you…
I’m going back to what I love best: writing, professional blogging, and blogging in general.
Yes, I’m re-entering the world of freelance writing.
Not that I ever really left freelance writing. I’ve been working on books and book proposals even while at Simply (the second edition of Create Your Own Blog is due on shelves any time now, plus Catherine Winters and I are madly working on our WordPress templates book), but now I’m going full bore looking for freelance writing projects.
