I've received a few buyout offers for the Reportedly.com domain over the years, and finally got one that was too good to pass up. I have no idea what the plan is for the domain, but I'm guessing it will be far more ambitious than this humble blog.
I didn't want my old postings to vanish. I also wanted to blog about the challenges and opportunities of writing as a contractor. I've owned the WriteField.com domain for more than a decade, and it just made sense as the right domain to talk about the field of writing.
WriteField.com originally launched as a platform for editors to find writers and for writers to find work. My vision was a Scriptlance, eLance, or Freelance.com for writers. I paid a programmer to set up a script, but it went buggy before the site gained any kind of traction. The domain sat -- waiting -- until now. Reportedly.com's loss is WriteField.com's gain.
