Going Pro- Years of Free Labor on the Web about to Pay Off With New Blog Gig
Posted Dec 07 2013 12:00am
That's right friends, after years of pontificating, complaining, and passing along dubious opinions and thoughts as though they were Gospel, my misbehavior has resulted in a monthly blogging gig with the Northwest Parkinson's Foundation. My posts will begin in January. I expect that the material I create for them will be similar to what I put up here, except I will be paid for it.
I have resisted past opportunities to make money from this blog as I don't want any questions to arise about who I am beholden to. In writing Off and On, I am and have been accountable soley to readers. In return you have been kind in your comments and your support as followers of the blog. (Which reminds me: Thank you!) I am not worried about being beholden to the NWPF. After ten years experience with them, I have confidence in them as an organization. Plus, they are not paying me THAT much.
I intend to continue Off and On, although I am tinkering with the idea of pushing it farther into visuals combined with writing. I will post links here to the work I do for NWPF, and they will link back here. If you have topics you think need addressing, I'm all ears. Post a comment to the blog, or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks to readers from around the globe for the precious time you have spent reading Off and On. I hope to continue making it worth your while.
