Marching to a different tune…

This post is dedicated to all my fellow bloggers, journalists, manual writers, ghostwriters, copywriters, aggregators and anyone else who ekes out a day-to-day living working as a freelancer.

Guess what?

We now have our very own “Freelance National Anthem,” courtesy of one very clever fellow, Bill Dysell and his CinemaSolo Channel.

The embedded video below just tickled my funny bone.

Dysell wrote lyrics to fit a very recognizable music theme from Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony. This is a guaranteed “ear worm.” There’s even an MP3 that’s available.

This fits right in with my classical music theme for this week.

This is initially funny, but the underlying truth is kind of scary. It may not be long before most Americans who don't work for a government agency may be working (struggling) freelance.

Tossing It Out

Barry - ;-D

Lee - I thought this was a nice tie-in as well to your classical week! :) I've been freelancing for many years and it has always been either feast and sometimes famine, but with many others taking this route they soon find out it's not as easy as one might think. We can chuckle about freelancing but it's still business and does have it's own set of boundaries and rules.
