National Freelancers Day

Well, I didn’t see that coming.

I posted the following whilst on the train in to Manchester today:

Apparently, its Freelancers Day today. Do something nice for your Freelancers today, pay their invoices.

Possibly a little flippant, but touched on a nerve that effects a lot of freelancer – poor payers. Every freelancer has good payers and poor payers, and the poor payers are a continual fly in an otherwise quite pleasant ointment. My little remark must have sounded a note with my freelancing brethren, since as soon as I posted it, my phone started buzzing with people (manually) re-tweeting.

And with Twitter’s native re-tweet function, it’s just hit 95 from 91 whilst I’ve typed this post. That’s not an epic amount of traffic (not even close), but it’s enough to make you think.

Update

@technicalfault just spotted I’ve got a “Top Tweet”. Awesome. Top Tweets
