Staying Focused

I have applied for several jobs here in my new town… the town I hope to settle down in permanently. I have been applying for everything I can hope to get, but there have been a couple that I feel I would be extremely happy with. One in particular would be great. It’s a part Member Services position and part Communications Representative. The Member Services is pretty much just customer service for members of the electric co-op. The Communications Rep duties include publishing the annual calendar of events for members, publishing the newsletter, handling the scholarship, and even writing press releases among other things. I handle many of the duties already with several of my freelancing clients so I hope I get the chance to interview for the position.

I have been visiting often with a couple of friends and yesterday they took Grandma and me out sightseeing which was fun. She was adamant about not going but they talked her into it which I’m glad they did as otherwise she would’ve just stuck around the house all day and moped because it was my dad’s birthday.

I think I need to call to make an appointment with my doctor sometime soon though as I’ve been feeling a tingly, sharpness in my feet sometimes… Almost like they are falling asleep but worse. It actually woke me up tonight. It has gradually gotten worse over the last week and a half to two weeks and I’m getting a little concerned.

There have been a lot of major updates to my freelance website. In fact, the only pages that I still have left to update are my Portfolio page with links to online samples of my work, and the Testimonials page where I will post some feedback that I’ve received from some of my clients. My writing rates, editing rates, contact, about, and blog pages are all up. I do need to write and post a new blog entry though just to make sure it’s current. Check it out HERE.

Well, I should get to work. I want to get a lot of writing done today as I really need the money at the moment. I have goals!

Two Awesome New Things!

So I have two awesome new things to show you, and I don’t know which one I’m more excited about so I guess I’ll just start with the one that happened first.

I set up a whole new website, that uses the domain I’ve had for a couple of years now. This site is bought and paid for, there’s no free website crap going on here. I got it all from GoDaddy and it was so easy to do, even for someone who’s not very good with the technical aspect of setting up websites unless it’s the website builders that everybody uses nowadays. The nice lady on the phone got me all set up with my domain renewal for 5 years (so I’d get a better price on it) and 2 years of my website builder to keep my 5-page website up and running on my domain. SOOOOOO! Do you want to see it? Huh? Do ya, do ya? Here ya go! The new website is HERE!

So, what do you think? Do you like it? Does it look professional? Feel free to leave a comment with your thoughts!

And the other thing I have to share with you is that my Kickstarter campaign is up and running! I am trying to raise funds to self-publish a memoir I am in the process of working on chronicling the 10 years I fought through my Bipolar Disorder to get my Bachelor’s degree. Please, share my Kickstarter page, or share this post, anything you can do to get the word out about this would help me raise the funds to make this dream come true for me. So what are you waiting for? Check it out!
