Tracking my progress on my goals this year has had an interesting effect on my freelancing: I'm not anymore.
Part of it is that since I've been working part-time as an after-school nanny, freelancing is not my primary occupation anymore, and as a result I've been lax on marketing and putting myself out there. Another part of it is that I've been deliberately trying to shift some of my focus to my novel writing, and that's what a great deal of my goals are about. I think keeping track of my goals -- my very un-freelancing oriented goals -- caused me to shift more of the focus to my novels than I had intended.
I am still trying to decide whether I like the end result. It's a little less income, on one hand, but on the other, it's also... more time with my novels.
Like I said, it wasn't entirely unplanned. Some of the website updates that I have planned were actually supposed to make this more of a blog and less of a marketing website -- not removing myself from freelancing entirely, just shifting the focus of my website so that my novels get equal real estate with my freelancing. It's just surprising to realize suddenly how little freelancing I've been doing -- there's been a steady decline since I took the nanny job almost a year and a half ago.
But I guess that's the thing about it being a freelancing career -- I am not chained to a desk, and I can change my career whenever and however it suits me. I just have to decide whether this does suit me.
