Mah New Ad For Freshbooks

I’ve put an ad up for a service called Freshbooks in the first sidebar. I can’t gush about Freshbooks enough. I have a head for finances like a leaky sieve. I also am in the nascent stages of building my business so there is no way I can afford an accountant for anything but taxes. However, I can afford $15.00/month, no problem.

Quickbooks, Quicken, AccPacc and the like require a lot of duplicate entries, assigning of meaningless numbers, etc. Freshbooks asks you to enter a client’s info once, and that’s it. The only massaging I have to do is making sure that my account is set to the right currency before I send out an invoice or an estimate, since they don’t yet have multi-currency support.

The best feature of Freshbooks is the fact that your clients can log in and pay you electronically from Paypal, all from one screen. They can also view past invoices, estimates, and generally everything you want them to see about their account. It makes you look professional, instantly.

Try it for free with just a few clients and you’ll be hooked as quickly as I was. Don’t forget to use my referral link so that I can save a little on my own fees.

Harlan Ellison – Pay The Writer


This has been posted and reposted and linked to so many times on so many writing blogs, and I usually like to be different. However, this is so awesome that if just one of you haven’t seen it yet, posting it was worth the effort.

What makes this more poignant is that Harlan Ellison is one of the most-lauded and prolific writers of all time, making the offer of “exposure” being exponentially laughable in this case.

For those of you familiar with “Star Trek”, Ellison penned the outstanding episode “City on the Edge of Forever” and famously went into a rant when producers changed his script. He’s also one of the best speculative fiction writers of all time, I highly recommend his books and short stories.

I also wanted to post it as a clear signal to anyone who comes here thinking that they can get writers to work for free – you can’t. Not on my watch, anyway.
