Career achievement

 
Hurrah! Had a fab email today letting me know that I am now “Top Rated” on oDesk which is the freelancing site I use to source some of my work. 

I’m pretty chuffed really as I’ve only been on oDesk a few months, but I’ve had some great feedback and some really interesting clients to work for, so I wanted to share / brag (hey at least I’m honest about it lol!)

Whilst I’m in a gloating mood I’ll share a couple of other feedback pics too….

   

So see there really is a good reason why I have been neglecting my blog – I’ve been busy being awesome!! 😜😜

One giant leap for the bantam….

Okay, in the grand scheme of things it is probably not a big deal. In face to some of you it’s probably not any sort of excitement…. however, today, I finally, for the very first time, applied for a couple of writing jobs on odesk (as kindly referred to me by my new cat-crazy friend Tom ~ “Hi Tom”). Just some article-writing type jobs, but still, a big “eeeeeeeeek”! I feel a bit like Neil Armstrong might have felt when he landed on the moon, except heavier!

Don’t get me wrong, I don’t have any expectation of actually GETTING them, after all I am relatively new to all this and just starting out. But at the same time, I feel like by at least applying I am putting myself out there – that I want, no damn it – WILL – write for a living in the future. Hopefully just not a distant future!

I guess all it really takes is someone to give me a break. What’s the saying, “don’t be shy, give ME a try”!

Now I just need to keep expanding my portfolio of work, but first – another cuppa!
