happy freelanceaversary!

On this day in 1998, I officially became a freelancer, as I was no longer a salaried employee at Byron Preiss Multimedia Company. While I have taken on two different part-time office-type jobs since then — as a worker for the U.S. Census Bureau on four different operations between 2009 and 2010 and as a clerk for the Cardinal Spellman High School library — I have, basically, been my own boss for lo, these 19 years. With the exception of the Census and Spellman jobs (for which I got W2s), everything I’ve done has been contract work that results in a 1099 in the new year.

I love being freelance. I love being my own boss. And, looking at my career, I’d say I’ve thrived, even if there have been some hiccups.
