From Full-Time Newspaper Reporter to Freelancer

Journalist Anne Hart recently quit her full-time newspaper job in order to write from home so she can be with her son. She's going to chronicle her transition from working in a newsroom to working from her home in a weekly column. "Money, or lack of it, will become a bigger factor than it already is for my husband and me," Hart wrote. "Staying home and freelancing is sure to bring lots of quibbles about how much I spent on lattes and he spent on lunches. Let the coupon-clipping and ban on eating out begin."
