What to do! What to do!
As of January 16th of 2009 our company in Orlando will close. At this point I have to come to some sort of decision as to how I will move forward.

• Should I branch out into freelancing full time?
• Should I seek employment with another company?
• Should I change careers and do freelance work on the side?

These are all questions I have to ask myself.
What is important to me is health insurance, 401K, steady income, etc. All things to consider, especially in these economic times.

I have to think about this more before I continue writing. I want to write something that will be relevant to myself and that may help other people too.
For now here is some humor from Hubspot!

So many Sites so Little Time

I signed on to Twitter this morning, as usual, before I head off to work. And geez there were so many interesting posts and sites to check out and of course so little time.
I wanted to make sure I checked them out and so I just started copying and pasting them here. Some day I am going to have to sort all this information that I am gathering OR at least try to.
What I have been doing up to this point is to add links that I think are of interest to my resource link side panel, but that is getting rather cumbersome and long. Somehow, I will need to sort through those and categorize them into some useful directory.
Arghhhh. Just another organizational mess to figure out.
