Happy Friday! I changed up my blog design again, which is to say that I changed it back to Automattic’s Scrawl (one of my favorite blog themes), but this time I added a landing page that included a quick overview of my freelance career.

In other words, people who visit https://www.nicoledieker.com/ will get the top-level summary of who I am and what I do, plus the opportunity to browse recent blog posts. People who click on individual blog post links will get those posts. You can even scroll (or scrawl) through the entire blog at https://www.nicoledieker.com/blog/, if that’s something you want to do!

On that note — what do you want me to write about next week? I’m thinking of doing another piano post, but I’d also like to write something about freelancing. I haven’t done a good freelancing post in a long time, so let me know if there’s anything in particular you’d like me to address (how tos, money topics, etc.). If not, I may do a general overview of What My Career Is Like These Days, now that I’ve been at this freelancing game for nearly a decade.

Of course, the best way to understand what my career is like these days is to look at WHERE I GOT PUBLISHED THIS WEEK:
