Untitled #34: Movement

So, I may have been working on another blog, one that is more “professional” and less well, whatever this is. (Sorry.)  I will have a blog element to it.  I just won’t be so…freewheeling.  I registered it under my real name using my big girl email address.  The email address I registered this blog under was definitely the *ahem* fandom email.  You don’t need to know about it.

You don’t need to know about it.

It’s not up up and I’m not entirely sure if I can merge the two together – I don’t think so, but I need to do some more digging.  But before I do that, I need to write the two articles that are due this week.  Better than the seven articles I had due last week.  But I choose to do those and I was happy to take all those assignments.

This is not a complaint.  As Joe Friday would say, “Just the facts, ma’am.” And if I have to explain that reference to you, you are either not of this particular country or too young.

Speaking of freelance gigs, I’ve just been accepted to another online publication to do more freelancing. This excites me for two reasons:

  • More writing
  • More writing that’s paid

Oh, sure, it’s rather small but I get a byline and sometimes that’s just a wee bit more important.  Getting paid to do something that I love is *always* a bonus.

Okay, time to make the donuts.

I am just not motivated to write a blog post.  It’s not that I’m not writing.  Honestly, I average about four articles/posts a month for Parachute and that pleases me greatly.  So, I have to ask myself, what’s the purpose of this particular blog?  Most of the time, these days, if you have a blog then you are trying to sell something.

I’m not selling anything.  Though, it seems that if I want to become a full-time freelancer then I need to sell my services.  God, doesn’t that sound dirty?  I have neither the inclination or the temperament to go forth and network.  Yes, I understand that networking nowadays isn’t all the bad, but then I would need to step out of my shell, wouldn’t I and talk to people.

I talk to people all day long in my job.  Most of the time it is various coworkers who I am talking to but sometimes, just sometimes I am talking to someone on the verge of taking that first step to changing their lives around.  And let me tell you that first step?  It’s a doozy.  We’re asking you to trust us with helping you change your life.  Not easy.

Oh, look.  I’ve gone off topic.

*___*

Anyway, I’m still here.  Lurking.

I thought…

…that I had y and z tucked away somewhere for the blogging a to z thingy.  I might still.  I just have to dig up an old midori insert.  

*shrugs*

Holy crap.

I make no excuses.

I *have* been writing…just not here, which makes me wonder should I keep this going? Do I want to?  Do I care?  It depends on the day.  I’ll aim for three times a week and we’ll see how that goes.

Hope y’all are well and that your summer is awesome.
