Job Hunt: Updates with Good News

(i've started wearing eyeliner and eyeshadow!)

Thanks for following my process as I become a working mom.  Remember when I wrote this cry for help? Best thing I ever did! Here's what's happening now:

My internship at New York Family magazine is going really well. What do I do when I'm in the office? I've been blogging for the New Parents Expo here and tweeting for it here. It's been exciting to be apart of the process of putting on a massive expo. It's all going to come together October 15th-16th. Almost here!  I've also been helping my boss Rebecca anywhere she needs me. Assisting her by making copies, organizing info in spreadsheets, and (my favorite) representing the magazine at events around the city here and here.  I'm keeping my fingers crossed that a position will open up for me at New York Family magazine after my internship is over.

Most of the next info is vague, because I'm not sure how much I'm allowed to divulge yet. But I thought you'd like to know!

1. In the last month, I've been offered two paid writing gigs from two huge websites. I'll go into more details as soon as I know more.
2. I've signed with a major ad network so I'll be making a little extra money off my blog soon. I'll keep you posted.

All good news. I can't wait to start making MONEY!

  4. That's so exciting for you! Congrats! You always give me so much hope reading your blog. I even bought the e-book you contributed to, I loved the piece, could really relate to it. I guess the moral of the story is: keep blogging, good things will come. :)

    Although by far my favorite line in this post was about the eyeliner! Ha! I give myself a HUGE pat on the back if I manage to shower AND put on lipstick. That's a good day.

    I do hope you can link up to your writing on the other websites when its allowed! Can't wait to read it!

  13. Go, fight, win! And then share your money with me. Ha! (or at least add me to your blog roll so I can be as popular as you - heehee... no, really...)

    You look beautiful. And where are you standing? Did you paper your wall with that Anthro paper? Love it!

    Also, we need to play again. There are so many fun fall city things to do!
