I probably should have titled this hello, or bonjour, instead of yeehaw. But, YEEHAW better reflects the fact Iím happy to be here.

I've been lurking and reading the freelance section for a while now. So, it feels good to come out of the shadows and officially become part of the community.

As for myself, Iím fairly simple and easy going. Iím a fledgling freelancer (try saying that 10 times really fast), and slowly making progress. I like to write about travel and issues important to Americans living abroad. The French speaking side of Belgium is where my wife, daughter, and I make our home.

The AW water cooler is a great resource. Iíve benefited greatly by finding answers to many of my questions. Never having to ask those questions was probably why it took me so long to sign up in the first place. Another thing, none of the other forums Iíve visited seem to have the same positive vibe Iíve picked up here. I look forward to meeting and interacting with all of you.

Many kind regards,

Marmaduke

Thanks for the warm welcome, folks. I just read a few other newbie intros and cringed at how often I came across the words: "out of the shadows". Looks like I need to work on originality.

Cheerio.
