Saw LinkedIn posting. Wrote directly to the agency. Hour later, staffing firm calls me, says the agency called them bc I was shown by that staffing firm 5 months ago, so I have to go through them.....

Question: what’s best practice for LinkedIn? Listing all the agencies you’ve freelanced at in your description, or having each stint in your job history?

Freelance writers: Ive been approached to work on a smallish naming project. I was asked what my “rate is for branding work”. Do freelance writers have different rates depending on the work they do?

Just had someone I’m working for (directly) text me at 10:45pm last night. Wtf. Boundaries! There was nothing in it that was urgent either. I’d never text my therapist like that. I ain’t her besties!
