The benefit of being available

Recently I got a message asking if I'd be interested in writing for Seattle NorthCountry, the branded county tourism and small business site. Absolutely! One of the former editors from LiEv runs it and thought of me when he found himself needing help getting holiday content on the blog. There was supposed to be a focus in December on restaurant experiences, but due to the pandemic they aren't doing that.

I had my pick of topics because the other writer he reached out to didn't show up to the Zoom call, and they were super easy because that editor had already made a list of a lot of places to include in the posts. I'm already good at a listicle, and when I have that much guidance I can really pump them out. I had a few weeks to turn them in one each week and the first three we agreed to were done before my first deadline.

Then he asked if I could do a couple more, which I made quick work of. The best part is the pay, almost seven times as much as I'm used to getting for a blog post.

There's no author page on that blog to link to, though, so here are the posts if you'd like to check them out.
