It’s all kicking off

Right then. We’re just about in November and that means one thing: bonfire night.

Well that’s true, it does – but it’s not quite what we were thinking of.

Yes it’s bonfire night, but it’s also National Freelancers Day (NFD) on the 23rd. Which, if you think about it, is a similar celebration of individuals making their mark (although without quite so many fireworks and burnt effigies, perhaps.)

As we said last week, we’re doing our bit to support NFD organisers PCG on the day by talking to freelancers, finding out more about the pros and cons of going solo and using all that valuable information to bring together some really useful articles and reports.

Oh, and did we mention we’re giving away some Kindles too. That’s right! And they’re the new, smaller, lighter, faster ones too…

Help wanted

But, without your help, all this could be for nothing. So we’d really love it if you got involved and made it a day to remember.

There are three ways you can join in:

  • Complete our quick survey (for the chance to win a Kindle).
  • Take part in our freelancer interviews every Friday throughout November.
  • Have a go at PCG’s Fit To Freelance quiz and put your freelance prowess to the test.

You can try any or all of these if you want – none require anything more than minimal effort from you.

Get involved

If you fancy putting your name in the hat for a Kindle, click here to go to our survey. Good luck.

Or, if you’d like to be one of our featured freelancers on freelance Friday (we won’t ask you to repeat that, don’t worry), get in touch with me ( or Vicky ( and we’ll do the rest. You can also tweet us @PolicyBee – don’t forget to use #freelancefriday. It’s a great chance for you and your business to get in front of thousands of readers on our blog, talk about what you do and – who knows? – maybe make some new connections.

That’s it for now. Keep your eyes open and your ears peeled for more news as we countdown to the 23rd. The first of our freelance Fridays is at the end of this week so make sure you check back then – it could be you!
