I’m linking up with Jana tonight for Stream of Consciousness Sunday. (I wanted to do this link-up a couple of weeks ago and I don’t know what stopped me.) The rules: Set a timer for 5 minutes and just write.
I just returned from the Type A conference a few hours ago. I’m exhausted and feel like I haven’t slept in days, which isn’t totally true. I did sleep. I went to bed really late, and I woke up really early each day (one day I woke up at 5:40 so I could run with a few fantastic bloggers.) I slept hard, but not for long.
I learned so much this weekend. So much. I don’t know if I’m cut out to be my own boss, and lately that’s what I feel like I’m being
led pushed to do. Working for oneself is scary, I think. I really enjoy a consistent paycheck and while I do have freelance work (so “real” clients), my paychecks are never consistent.
I have to make the switch from Blogger to WordPress. Soon. As in, possibly this week. (Do you have a preferred host? I use GoDaddy for everything, and I’m not sure how they’d handle my blog.)
I sat in a website analytics/seo/geeky session and I took so many notes and actually did some of what Ruth told us in that session. It took me 3 hours, but I was incredibly proud of what I accomplished.
Whenever I met someone new, the topic led to my job and I found myself saying “I used to be a web developer.” I need to get out of that mindset. I am a developer. I am a consultant. I am worth so much to a company, and I just need to find that company.
Five minutes is up.
