Freelance Life At Bohemiacademia, Week 29

It’s 8.30pm and I’m still in the office. I’ve been here for about twelve hours, which actually isn’t that bad for a Monday. I tend to work two mammoth days in the office each week, so that on the other days I can split my time more evenly among other things. This week I’m also planning to go on holiday – I’ll be offline from Thursday-Sunday – so I have a bunch of things to get done before I can leave.

Freelance Life At Bohemiacademia, Week 28

I am writing this as quickly as I can, because I’m trying to leave the office by 8pm so I can go swimming on my way home. Working for yourself isn’t always straightforward and it doesn’t always mean you work shorter days. However, it usually does mean you get to pick your own hours. I work long days on Mondays and Thursdays, for example, so that I can fit other things in throughout the rest of the week.

How do you structure your time as a freelancer?

Freelance Life At Bohemiacademia, Week 27

The year is flying by and getting hotter as it goes, at least here in London. We’ve seen record temperatures this week: 34 degrees on Saturday in West London, where I live. Luckily I managed to escape for the day and get into a nice cold sea down in Brighton, although about half the population of London had evidently had the same idea, so I spent a significant portion of my day baking on the M25 and begging my car not to break down. Today I’m back in the (mercifully air-conditioned) office.

Freelance Life At Bohemiacademia, Week 25

We are almost halfway through the year, can you believe? And still working hard here at the Bohemiacademia office. Despite creating a whole bunch of our clients, I find it’s way too easy to put off writing these weekly round-ups, hence the frequent hiatuses. But I must begin to practise what I preach, otherwise why would anyone listen to me?

#MyDeskView: Johanna Spiers, Freelance Proofreader

Show us a picture of your work space and tell us about it.

I work from a variety of places: my sofa, my dining room table, my balcony, my best friend’s living room and the office in my partner’s house. My favourite place to work is the balcony, which I do whenever the sun is shining. I can see nature, sky and cows from there, and it makes me feel elated that I am my own boss and am lucky enough to live somewhere so spectacular. Read More

Week 21, 2019

It’s been a while since I’ve posted an update about what we’ve been doing – sorry! It’s not that we haven’t done much; if anything, it’s the exact opposite. The last few weeks have been incredibly busy here at Bohemiacademia, but I know it’s important to keep blogging (as we’re always telling our clients… do as we say, not as we do 😉 ) so here’s our latest update.

A Busy Week And Two New Hires!

This week’s most exciting piece of news is the addition of two new members to the Bohemiacademia team. Christa will be helping with content for one of our biggest clients, and Grace will be joining us as an intern to help with general admin and content creation.

In theory this should help my own life to get a bit less busy, but in practice I doubt it will; both new hires will be focusing on areas that need some extra attention. Hopefully over time though we’ll add even more team members and I’ll be able to palm off some of the day-to-day running of the business to somebody else, or perhaps a group of somebodies. Read More
