Expecting My Pulitzer Any Day Now…
Well, folks, I’ve finally reached a milestone I can be proud of.
That’s right — I’ve landed my first, paid writing gig. (Besides this, of course, for which I earned $7.88 in one year.)
Here she blows:
What Your T-Shirt Says About You — Part 1: The Lovable Geek
Well, I hope she doesn’t blow, because that would… blow.
Feel free to leave a comment on that post saying how awesome the writer is. There are a couple of writers for that blog, and unfortunately our names don’t go on the posts, so there’s no solid way for readers to tell who wrote what. Except that mine are awesome. (Okay, the others aren’t too shabby, either.)
Did I mention I’m getting paid? Not substantially, mind you –and I’m probably putting more effort into each than is required by what I’m getting paid, but hey — money is money. I’m hoping my work and portfolio-buildage will pay off eventually.
Aside from short t-shirt and costume related articles, we also get to concoct lists. Here’s my first list:
Costumes Guaranteed to Humiliate Your Dog
It’s kind of cool that I’m getting paid for that. Of course, I won’t actually believe I’m getting paid until I have that check in my fat little fingers, but here’s hoping.
Anyway, I have some projects I’m working on and some recipes to share, so don’t worry — I’m not dropping that part of the blog. I just haven’t had time to go through the photos yet. I know — can you believe it? I’m actually busy.
I’m kind of shocked myself.
I still haven’t heard back from the real-life job, but they told me to expect a call on Monday. I won’t hold my breath that long, but if you could do it for me, that would be great.
Anyone have any exciting weekend plans?
YAY for being a world famous PAID writer!! The RL job will come soon. My weekend plans: In reference to your post yesteray; trying not to crash the Titanic (aka ME) into anything!
Haha… you’re not quite as big as the Titanic. ;) Don’t forget pictures on Sunday!
Excellent! You obviously aren’t pulling from personal experience because who would wear a ‘Vader was framed’ shirt? Yet alone, what type of sick and twisted individuals (I’m assuming there were 2) would get someone a shirt like that. ;)
I will admit — I had totally forgotten about it when I wrote that article, but your post on geeks and t-shirts must have inspired that one. So thank you! And of course it doesn’t hurt that I have a lovable geek for a husband with lovable geeky friends. :) Anyway, I have a whole slew of “what your t-shirt says about you” t-shirts.
Getting paid to right is seriously baller! Congrats!*
Why thank ya! It’s definitely not much, but I’m quite proud. Although I’m having some blockage coming up with next week’s posts. This regular gig thing is harder than I thought. ;)
That was a great article loved the topic and was as well written as normal I am sure this opportunity will grow for you as will your “name” :)
Haha, thanks! I wonder how long I’ll last writing about t-shirts…
Woohoo! Getting paid to write officially makes you an author, not just a writer, which you already were. Congrats!
You are too sweet. :) Thank you!
Congrats on the paid gig! I left a comment over there… :)
Thank you!! I don’t have the rights to approve it, but I saw it — I appreciate it! (A couple others did as well, and I appreciate you too!)
2. you’re well on your way, darling.
Haha, only a foot past the starting line, but getting there. ;)
LOL!! you are hilarious, I love the dog costumes.
Thank you! I had fun with that one. :)
