Alright, I’ve decided I need to buckle down and get more consistent and streamlined, more of a theme or a brand if you will. I haven’t decided yet what I’m going to use to tie into “La La Land” but I know I want an icon for TV Show Reviews, Movie Reviews, Recipe Reviews, Video Game reviews, and Book Reviews. And Quotes of the Day. And Family Anecdotes/Parenting.
Which reminds me. I received an email the other day from http://www.todaysmama.com/ that said:
“Thanks for your writing application that you submitted Forever ago! We're now ready to hire in the York market and wanted to be sure you're still interested in the position. If so, we'd like you to write in the ‘Parenting’ category.”
It is pay-per-click, and not much at that, BUT that’s not the point!! Lol Erica, one of the editors, also said this:
“…we hope you will find the benefits of additional exposure for your blog, writing and background invaluable. Along the way TodaysMama will provide additional training, a community of writers for you to engage with and local media opportunities in which to participate.”
Yeah, you read that right! “Media Opportunities” she says! Ack! Kind of unnerving, but I’ll cross that bridge when I come to it. Right now, it means a real independent writer’s contract, payment, a weekly posting minimum (I can do more if I want!) and real experience to put on my resume, not to mention hopefully driving some more traffic to this here very blog! Hence the desire to clean up my act and do right by my blog! ;)
But how exciting is that?? A real staff position! This is gonna be so awesome! I’ve already made a list of potential article titles. Not 52, but a start. I’ll let you know on here every time I post but in the meantime, check out http://www.todaysmama.com/ which is also on Facebook here.
I'll let you know when I've put up my first post!! :) Yippee! What a great start to the New Year!
