As some of you already know (or may have guessed), I've spent a lot of time this week on my blogs. I've started a couple of new blogs, and have updated others with templates and fresh posts.
Something I've noticed is the way I can lose myself in my work when I'm working on my own stuff. It's been a while since that has happened on a regular basis with my clients' projects. While I tend to get distracted from doing billable work, I get distracted with my own projects.
It's made me realize something: I don't take enough work that I can get excited about. In general, I have more work to choose from than I used to, so I think I need to start choosing projects not only based on pay, but also on whether I will enjoy doing them.
