Celebrate National Punctuation Day

Did you know today is National Punctuation Day? It's true—an entire day devote to celebrating all there is to love (and loathe) about our favorite forms of punctuation.

It all started with Jeff Rubin, a former copy editor who got the day listed on Chase's Calendar of Events in 2004. Each year, he and his wife cook a meatloaf shaped like a question mark as an ode to the day.

You can learn more—and even enter a National Punctuation Day Baking Contest—at the official website,

I'm wondering: What's your favorite form of punctuation and why?

An Apology

Hello dear freelancing friends.

I apologize for leaving you high and dry for over a month. I never intended for time to get away from me like that, but I discovered that it really is possible to be too busy.

Things have slowed down a (very little) bit now, however, so I hope to be back a bit more frequently with news and notes and posts of interests to you, my fellow freelancers.

In the meantime, I'm wondering: As a freelancer, is there anything in particular you'd like to learn more about? Anything you could use some advice or assistance with? If so, let me know. I'll provide my two cents when I can and track down answers from other pros where it makes sense.

In the meantime, happy freelancing!
