Getting Picked Up Again

Another of my pieces at 50 Something Moms will go into syndication the week of December 1st. I am pretty thrilled and slightly impressed with myself though goodness knows why. It’s not like anyone is paying me money and isn’t that how we are ultimately measured? 

Well, maybe not. I would like the opportunity to measure myself monetarily just a bit though where this whole writer gig thing is concerned. I keep hoping someone with the authority to say “Hey, come and write for us” will read me during one of these syndication opportunities because I haven’t any idea who to go to on my own – and believe me I would as I have no shame – or where there is a market for the kind of writer I am, at least on the Internet.

Writing is like real estate. It’s location and a bit of timing and a whole lot of salesmanship.

You can find my next syndicated piece here and my last offering here, if you haven’t caught it already. Let me know what you think!

  1. You are a writer which means you find validation in the print–you are a human which means you find validation in monetary compensation for the print–it will come–I promise you ARE that good.

    Gosh, thank you. It’s high praise in my book because you are one of the best writers I know.

  2. Congrats! I know sometimes it’s hard to justify how much time you put into publication for no money. On the other hand, writers write to be read. That much you’re doing, paid or not. And like you said–you never know who’s reading. Best wishes!

    Thank you so much.

  3. exciting that you’re getting “picked up” with some regularity! there can be no downside to more exposure to your writing… it’s a good piece, and hits on one of my ‘parental rants’ — no excuse for parents not to stay engaged in school. i worked. i did it. can’t dump it all on the schools!

    This getting picked up thing is too cool for words – almost.
