Whoa… where have I been? Living life and not stopping to take notes, that’s where. My time has been preoccupied with managing this writer’s life. I believe that the mind can take you wherever you want to be, and right now my mind is tripping.
I didn’t think that I’d get back to a place in my career again where I could turn down jobs because I was already flooded with work. This past week, I was able to negotiate a deal with one company that would guarantee me double the rate I made before getting my degree. So rather than turn down a job, I just gave myself a raise. The power of words is strong indeed.
The work that I’m flooded with is blogging for another site. It pays a lot more than blogging for this site I tell you, but one day that will change. I’m learning a lot about the blogosphere though, like the purpose of blogging, and sharing with other bloggers and asking questions and making comments. I’m also learning that capital letters and triple exclamation points are great attention grabbers. Anything with a hashtag is sure to get some shares.
The plan is working though. I’m getting my name out there again in the publishing world. I saw one of my first professional blogs up on the web today. One of the blog managers said that it was getting a lot of shares in a short span of time, and that’s good news for the team. It’s great news for me because LOUPY D is getting some action!!!
