It’s the end of October 2011 and I’ve just started this blog.
2011 was a year of transition for me. I started it as a freelance web developer, and I’m ending it as a freelance (French->English) translator and academic editor. 2011 was also the year I started writing publicly. In January 2011 I created a blog under the name of Seycen and started posting on a daily basis – simply because I wanted to.
This year I established another blog/website under my own name for my editing work. I’m starting to outgrow it, but it does the job for now. Most recently I’ve setup another website dedicated to translation (it helps a lot to be an ex-web developer when it comes to these things).
By the time October came, I had my two professional websites to look after and an established habit of blogging for the general public. However, something was missing. In ten years’ time, when I’m running my multi-million pound business, I want to be able to look back and be reminded how hard it was at the beginning. I wanted somewhere to chronicle the ups and downs of starting out in business, both from a personal and professional point of view, at a level of detail sure to bore the average reader. So here we are. In the space I’ve created to write about both the personal changes I’m going through, and the development of the business.
Bonne lecture !
