First, the bad news: No news on the job situation, which means that I am still looking for a job. Even if I am based in Odense, I am geographically flexible – the train connections out of Odense are excellent so I can be in places like Esbjerg, Aarhus or Copenhagen within 90 minutes. Feel free to take a look at the “About Me” page for starters.
Second, there is unfortunately a formal issue with blogging when you are unemployed as it technically could be seen as work or an independent source of income. I should note that even if this blog has had some links with my previous line(s) of work, it has always been a con amore project completely unsupported by any advertisers or sponsors. I pay some 250 DKK per year for the domain and hosting.
I’m not quite sure why having this kind of web-presence is problematic if maintaining a LinkedIn profile isn’t – after all a well-maintained blog can also be a way of presenting yourself to potential employers and finding a job or freelance assignments. I am of course aware of sponsored blogs or blogs carrying advertising but this is in a different league.
Still, to avoid any problems I will limit posting to week-ends and updates to the Project 52 – 2013 series for the time being. And if you want to get in touch with me, here are the details.
