Big news: I'm quitting my job, moving back to Canada (with Svea of course) and taking the plunge into fulltime web development freelancing. This is something I've wanted to do for a long, long time (like seriously 10 years).
I'll be available to do any sized projects, from debugging CSS to adding Ajax functionality to full-blown database-driven web applications in PHP or Ruby on Rails. I love doing it all, and I love the variety. I think that's why freelancing is going to be very fun for me. I also plan to have more time to work on my own projects and get some very interesting things started. Stay tuned for more on that.
You can probably expect the content of this blog will start to include stuff about freelancing and self-employment. Hopefully I can help someone out by passing along any painful lessons learned. I'd also love to hear your stories and advice about going it alone.
