Before I became a full-time freelance writer, I juggled being a high school English teacher with regularly writing stories for half a dozen different publications.
Now that I freelance full time, my schedule can be just as busy as I’m doing freelance journalism for publications, freelance content writing for businesses and non-profits and working to grow the See Jane Write brand and community.
Brace yourself. I’m about to blog about journaling – again. A few months ago on Instagram, I stumbled upon the Same Page Journal, a couples journal designed by husband and wife team Alex and Caitlin Godwin to help couples practice healthy and intentional communication.
Time with my journal and time with my boo? Sign me up!
Believe it or not, learning how to look good on Zoom or any type of video call can actually help you as a freelance writer.
Knowing the right thing to wear when you’re interviewing sources for a story has always been tough. You want to be polished enough that you look professional and that you’re taken seriously. But you need to look relaxed enough that both you and the person you’re interviewing feel at ease.
Then the pandemic hit and in-person interviews were replaced with Zoom chats. The good news is now you don’t even have to bother putting on pants for interviews. The bad news is looking good on a webcam is even harder than looking good IRL!
