Remember Moments that Matter

Will Rogers, the American humorist once said:

“Even if you’re on the right track, you’ll get run over if you just sit there.”

True, but I have found that sometimes the temptation to just lay down on the tracks is great. I get weary of the turmoil and confusing nature of life.

It’s a social media “no-no” to post links to your work on other people’s Facebook pages. So I have created a Facebook group with sharing our creative work with others as it’s primary purpose. CLICK HERE:
Freelance Media on Facebook, Twitter and Youtube

Writers, producers, photographers, filmmakers, web designers, graphic artists, musicians, and related careers: You’re invited!

Post links to your work in this group, where freelancers and self employed stick together. I only ask that you don’t post links to the group more than twice a day, so no one is dominating the feed. No political ranting, no silly photos and sayings, just links to your profiles, youtube videos, websites, etc. Professionals only, please. Thanks, Trace ~ The Social Freelancer ™
