Getting Started

I created this site last week (July 2012), it's still very much a work in  progress, as you can doubtless tell.



I've been working freelance since June 2011 but have been lucky that work has come to me, I haven't had to go looking for it. Now I'm thinking it would be good to have some more clients. I have some spare capacity and there's lots I could be doing that could make a difference for businesses I don't yet know....


My biggest challenge at the moment is deciding what to focus my efforts on. I don't want to restrict myself from something interesting by saying I only do X or Y. But equally I know I need to be clear and specific about my capabilities and interests if I'm to achieve any sort of cut through with potential employers. 


This is a short blog post because I'm really just testing the blog functionality of this particular web hosting package, which I've chosen for my personal site. It's called Jimdo, German built. Does what I need it to do, I think. Obviously I can use various other solutions for sites I might build for clients.  


If you have suggestions for how I can make this site better as I continue to develop it, or any words of encouragement for someone starting out in freelance life, please leave me a comment below. You'll make my day. :)
