I had ONE session this morning, at 7:30 am, and now I can’t get back to sleep. Bleh.
So, since I’ve been back for a while, and posting regulalry again (althought, slacking majorly on the comments- but I’m still reading everyone of you guys, I promise) I thought I would make some announcements.
I’ve been writing a TON lately, and I really missed it. Writing is a hard job- its tough being creative, or even moderately interesting, under a deadline. People think freelancing is all Wi-Fi from Starbucks and lounging in bunny slippers, but its pretty much constant emails with editors, readers, and sponsors, proofreading, networking, and being told to “stop swearing.” But, that’s what I love about it, and I never ever (even though I would be open to it) write about anything other than Health and Fitness, my passion, so it’s always enjoyable.
Incase you haven’t heard, I am currently writing about 4 times a week for www.Twirlit.com as their Health and Fitness Expert. I am in contact with a ton of comapnies to start doing healthy snack and fitness equipment reviews and giveaways once a week, so be prepared to enter when I email you. If you’ve never recieved email giveaway announcements from me, email me your email address at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll put you at the top of the list.
I am also writing for Fitness Friday at Breathe.com. These, hence the name, are every Friday, so be on the lookout for those.
There is a new site I am writing for that is set to launch soon as well- Ill keep you posted on that one, but its going to be really cool.
The other thing about freelancing is you have to constantly be on the prowl for new gigs since your job is never ever secure.
If any of you need any content, for your site, your business, for copy, or anything else, don’t hesistate to email- I am always looking for more jobs. Blogs are huge in promoting a business but many businesses don’t have time to devote to a blog, which is where I come in. Let the pros handle it
A Crossfit opened near my house, and I am resisting the urge to run over their right now and join. I saw them flipping tractor tires the other day. WHY OH WHY IS IT SO EXPENSIVE? I could go old school and do my own Crossfit in my backyard, but where is the fun in that? I tried sneakily to offer to write a review of them for Twirlit in exchange for a few classes, but haven’t heard anything back yet.
Also- Shape Magazine emailed me the other day!!! I almost peed myself. THEY emailed ME asking how long I have been blogging. I answered and haven’t heard anything back. Now I can’t stop wondeirng what they want and have to resist emailing incessantly to get a response. Its worse than waiting for a boy to call. The curiousity is killing me. How awesome would it be to write for Shape!? They don’t have any blogs either. Let’s all write emails petitioning me to be their Fitness Blogger. I don’t know where you could send them, but write them in your head and send them off into the atmosphere where Oprah says all things are possible.
That’s just how excited I am- I’m willing try anything, even what Oprah tells me to do.
Speaking of which, I’m wiritng a peice on wether celebs like Oprah are motivating because they are real women who fail, or whether is discouraging that even people with every resource at their disposal can’t keep the weight off. Thoughts? If I like your comment, I’ll quote you in the peice.
