I previously mentioned that I was working on a couple of projects for a friend and wanting to slowly work my way into freelancing. I’m still not currently thinking about ditching the day job, but I would like to continue to do little, well-crafted sites for individuals or small businesses. In fact I have another one in the hopper that hasn’t started yet.
With that in mind I’m not adding either of these sites to the Projects section of this site. I define “projects” as sites I do for myself. This brings me to a somewhat existential question… do I add a “Work” section here or start a separate site for freelance/client work?
I’m leaning heavily towards a new separate site, as “Work” would imply my “Portfolio”, which would include work from my vast collection of jobs over the last twenty some years. And honestly I just don’t want to do that. Trying to figure out how to represent that feels too much like work itself.
I don’t have a timeline for any of this, which perhaps is the best part (see previously mentioned burnout). In the meantime, I’ve been doing a lot of digital housekeeping, and have found many an odd and hilarious item. I may start a Twitter thread of some of the better ones as I slowly emerge from burnout.
