In an effort to offer some inspiration to other aspiring freelance writers out there, I wanted to share an update on my writing career since announcing that I’d left a salaried job and gone full-time as a freelancer.

It’s Official: I’m a HuffPo Blogger

I’ve mentioned that I have a few really fun things I’ve been working on in addition to my day job and this blog. One of them was getting set-up as a Huffington Post Blogger.

You can check out my first post now to see how easy it is to start traveling. Feel free to comment and share from there – spread the love! And seriously, people. Stop planning so much all the time. It’s just not necessary.

Stay tuned for more fun things that are already in the works!
