Chat with a Freelancer Interview

When I began work life as eDitmore Editorial Services 18 months ago, I had little understanding of how much the world of editorial freelancers had changed in the half decade that I had been away. Although I knew I could count on the Internet and email to help me find clients, I didn’t really understand that I could also use these tools to find colleagues.

But gradually, I began to find websites, LinkedIn pages, listservs and Twitter users dedicated to the editing profession, editing professionals, and freelance business owners. And to my delight, I discovered that the people in the groups were almost always pleasant and eager to help dissect a complex grammatical problem, diagnose a software malady, or share tips about editing shortcuts and how to succeed in this business.

Today, I am thrilled to be “featured” in one of the blogs I have found most helpful and entertaining: the Saturday Business Chat on Liz Broomfield’s LibroEditing site. Liz is an editor based in Birmingham, England, so we’ve never met, of course, but we have corresponded by email a bit. Each Saturday, Liz “chats” with the owner of a small or freelance business. Today, that’s me, and you can read it here:

I loved taking part in this interview because it forced me take the time to think about my business: what I have done, why, how I feel about it now, and where I want to be in a year. Thanks for the opportunity, Liz; I’m already looking forward to the one-year checkup!

  1. Tammy, it was a pleasure to feature you – and I am so pleased that people enjoy doing the interviews and having a really good think about their business (as you may know, I interviewed myself in December, and I found that a very interesting process!). I am also so pleased to see you talking about it here on your blog, too!
