Freelance '09

TSF recently asked Ian Harvey, a former Toronto Sun vet, for an update on the life and times of a freelancer during the downturn of newspapers and other media sources.

"You asked for it . . . you got it," Ian says in an e-mail, directing us to his blog for a replay of his post-Sun freelance years. His heading: Brother, can you spare an assignment?

Says Ian, freelancing since 2004: "So, for those recently downsized in the ever downward spiral who wonder what freelancing is like, here’s a quick review and a look at what I’m going through, with some advice if you’re seriously considering getting into those games."

Freelancers have had their peaks and valleys and Ian's replay puts the past year for freelancing deep in a valley for him and others.
