Okay so “writer” might be going too far, but I did recently (3 weeks ago) secure a paid writing gig on a blog that I am a fan of–The Passion Project. The fact that I am just now whoring it out makes me an amateur…
The blog is about pursuing your passions and living the life you want in the depth of your heart–a cause I can surely get behind. My column, Despiter of the Week, comes out on Thursdays and features different folks who were passionate about something/someone and the lessons we can learn from their stories.
But don’t worry–as sentimental as it may sound, it is still me writing it. I was chosen for my expert use of choice words and my general smart assiness–that is the spice I bring to the project–and they are paying me for it. A modest amount for sure, but still.
Anyway, hope you enjoy!
