The Full Media blog offers insights, opinions and discussions concerning various forms of online media from proofreading and copywriting to web design and video.
What particularly appeals to me about the Full Media blog is the marketing angle. As small-business owners, editorial freelancers are constantly challenged by the pressure to keep up with the latest ideas and developments emerging not only in the area of publishing, but of business in general. We're not just proofreaders, editors, copywriters or indexers; we're our own IT directors, marketing managers and web development specialists, too. Keeping up to date with how we can enhance our business practice using the range of media available to us is important, and the Full Media blog promises to help.
The blog was born only last month (April 2013), but if the initial posts are anything to go by this will be a must-read and well worth bookmarking. Here's what's already live:
The blog is hosted by my colleague Nick Jones, a professional proofreader, editor copywriter and videographer. Some of you will already know him from the Find A Proofreader directory or through his editing business, Full Proof. Nick and I share an interest in not only the mechanics of editorial work but also the business-building aspects of running a small company, especially the marketing side of things, so I'm excited about how the learning opportunities on offer here.
