One week later I have completed stage 1, the website is up and running properly now, and I have some content and some more to come =D
the next step I am dreading a little bit, first of all setting up a twitter account. Which I have managed to avoid for many years but it seems it might be needed for connectivity. Finishing my LinkedIn account. Then scouring each for other freelancers that might help.
I am going to put my website on Facebook for everyone to see. While also writing on a few freelance pages I already have.
Meanwhile, I will be checking job boards and applying for any jobs that I think I am even slightly qualified for. Hopefully, between this three-part action, I will get some kind of interest or response.
Wish me luck, will let you know how it goes.
