Few things in history have changed the world as the Internet has done.
True to name, the world wide web networks us all together through a fine lace of hobbies, jobs, interests and lifestyles. It enables us to stay in touch with childhood friends or buy vintage goods from a stranger in a far-off land. To order a pizza without picking up the phone or submit a college application with the mere click of the mouse.
And the Internet has given me work.
Hi, my name is Erin and I am a freelance writer. Six years ago, I moved from a tiny town in Virginia to the sprawling Costa Rican capital of San José. Six years ago, I became a telecommuter in the Digital Age – a writer, a blogger, a copywriter who works with people all over the world on projects all over the map. A freelancer who attends meetings, who makes deadline, who pitches new projects while cozied up to a cup of coffee, still in her pajamas.
This is my story of professional growth with a sprinkling of personal anecdote. My journey would not have been possible without the help of my contemporaries – other writers who paved the way and shared their tales of success. Now I hope to pay it forward, one tip, one laugh, one story at a time.
