Freelance writing — or freelance anything — sounds to some like a dream job and to others like a nightmare. But what does it actually take to get it all happening? More importantly, do you have what it takes to get it all happening? George Halitzka gives it to you straight in So You Want to be a Freelancer.

We’re girls. We have hearts. And they tend to beat to a pretty romantic, dreamy, emotional rhythm. But that’s okay, because that’s just how girls are, right?

I love Australia, but one of my country’s major failings is that we don’t get to have a New Attitude conference every year. Boo. Nevertheless, there is a consolation prize: all the messages from NA08 are up on the New Attitude LiveBlog. The line-up includes Mark Dever, CJ Mahaney, Josh Harris, and John Piper. Woo!

Kudos to New Attitude for offering the messages online for free download, and thanks to Abigail for the heads-up.
