I never thought a decision to “Jump for the stars” in a random, ALMOST spur of the moment email, would land me my first Freelance Opportunity on a Website that covers the Lake Area where I live.
Unbeknownst to me, that is exactly what was about to unfold over the course of the next two days.
I was sitting in my chair, processing a lot of thoughts about where I am in life and knew there was something missing. I decided I was going to make the blog I had so longed for, to be able to express my random thoughts in my head. Just get them out on “paper”..
As soon as I was finished, I decided to head to my go too. Facebook, of course. My generations social media awesomeness! I came across an article about the Lake Area rising and thought that might be a great article to read since it had been raining in abundance and our own property was flooding up to our house in the backyard.
After reading it, I happened to glance at the top and something caught my eye. At the top it said, “Have a good story? Email here…” A thought occurred. Why not?!?! So I did. But it wasn’t about a story, it was to inquire about any freelance opportunities available.
I was nervous and a bit doubtful because I had no idea if this was the “way to ask” as well as, I have Zero experience on a professional level. Although I have written since I was in Elementary school and made straight A+’s on any and all things involving writing, I never imagined one small email could possibly change the course of my life. My children’s lives. But I feel, not to count my chickens before they hatch, that this marks a point, where a goal of mine has begun and that it will take me places that I want to go in life.
Now, I get to start the Biography, of who I am, What I am about, What I stand for and how I will “make the world” (or in my case, The Cedar Creek Lake area) a better place for those around me, and write about it on an amazing established website and set up my new “editor” account!
Wish me Light!
