    Love it, Michelle.

    I might just send a link to an ex-client who clearly doesn’t comprehend how greatly freelance writers contribute to his own success.

    Thanks so much for doing this! I was hoping there’d be some attention placed on this week. Hosting a Twitter party on 2/15 to celebrate. Stop in anytime and use the hashtag #freelanceweek

    Agree! Just one question–shouldn’t it be: If it weren’t…not wasn’t?

    Happy National Freelance Writers Appreciation Week, Michelle. Consider yourself hugged. 🙂

    Good post. Nice to be reminded of our value sometimes.

    I had to take time out of my insanely busy freelance writing week to give you a standing ovation – and a hug! When people say I’m so lucky I get to stay at home all day with the kids and play on my laptop, they don’t realize the sheer amount of work it actually entails (unless they’re my Facebook friend and see me posting sob-story status updates between articles during an all-nighter).

    They’re right though: I am lucky! It’s a hard, largely anonymous job, and I don’t get to sit around having fun on my laptop all day (not if I want to get paid), but I love it and wouldn’t trade it for anything! Well, except for maybe being a bestselling author. 😉
