These photos are from absolutely ages ago, I think almost a month? March has been one of my busiest months on record as you may have noticed from the lack of posts. I met up with two lovely bloggers, Bel and Lix in Camden and we spent the day wandering around Camden, basically eating and drinking and nattering. All these blogging meet-up days are definitely following a theme..!
I’m definitely not a fashion blogger and you have to admire the dedication of the other two (going to 4 different cafes because the aesthetic wasn’t right, bringing an alternative item of clothing specifically for the photos). I’m just never going to be that person… maybe I can be the person who shares all my travels and work with you instead? Huge props to Bel for managing to get these photos anyway regardless of my awful posing.
It’s always interesting to speak with other freelancers. Freelancing has a reputation for being a big struggle but I don’t think that’s necessarily the case. For me it’s not really something I think about too much, although I know freelancing can be kind of a tag or badge of honour for some people. I earn a good amount, freelancing suits my personality and I’m constantly happy and fulfilled with my work. I’ve found it pretty easy to get to the position I’m in but I think that’s because this kind of work really suits me as a person; if left to my own devices with no need to earn money I’d probably end up freelancing anyway.

I love your skirt.
I think freelancing is very good, why not – it gives some freedom (just some) and at the same time it’s challenging and by that I mean that I find challenging good! Yes, thumbs up for the girls who chose the cafe due to good aesthetics for their blogs, and taking pieces of clothes with… well, I think it’s interesting and as I said, thumbs up for their work… but just like you I can’t do it, though I know some people who do and think this is important. I like your work and trips’ pictures, so you have a fan :) And anyway, I loved your skirt from a month ago! I noticed the lack of posts but realized you mus have been busy! It’s a balance in life, which is great! Will April be very busy too? Whatever it is, I hope you are having fun!
I don’t think freelancing is a huge struggle either, when you get it working properly. I don’t need a lot to live on, so I can live with the fluctuating income as long as there’s a base point every month that covers my rent and basic expenses. The worst part is, I think, that you never stop getting people who want you to work for free. That makes my anxiety levels rise a lot. There’s also the thing about how much more is required of you for renting/buying property if you’re self-employed. But I went into freelancing on purpose and have never had another sort of job, and I don’t WANT to have another sort of job. That’s why I’ve turned in literally one application since I started talking about maybe getting a part-time job to supplement my income, and that was today… to Starbucks… because I’m desperate.. and I basically live here and I’m hoping they’ll take a chance on me. /o\
Thanks very interesting blog!
