Itâ€™s been two months since I posted about my plans for the New Year…which kinda blows my mind. Itâ€™s nearly spring. SPRING! I have an hour before I start readying myself for Cailin Oâ€™Neilâ€™s weekend visit, so I thought Iâ€™d provide a quick update on what Iâ€™ve been doing. Because I know youâ€™re dying to hear more about me.
March is my big month. In my latest article on Matador Life, Iâ€™ve already sentenced myself to a deadline. Have a read, and laugh at my expense. It amazes me that some people still think I havenâ€™t been working these past few months, and while I havenâ€™t gotten paid for it all, Iâ€™ve been steadily and slowly building a reputation and presence. Iâ€™m like the tortoise. A sexy tortoise.
Iâ€™ve been writing a few guest posts, like these:
Her Packing List â€“ The One Little Thing (Motion Sickness and Relaxation Pills): A not-so-serious ode to Gravol.
HostelWorld – 10 Fun Budget Things to Do in Halifax: I miss Halifax.
Iâ€™m AOL Canadaâ€™s official Newfoundland blogger. This week I wrote about 10 days of St. Paddyâ€™s Day partying in St. Johnâ€™s (god help me). Other favourites include a profile of the Newfoundland Chocolate Company and my current obsession about doing the Trans-Labrador Highway. Anyone?
Iâ€™m also one of CheapO Airâ€™s Canadian bloggers, the other being my partner in crime, Cailin. The blog was just recently launched, so Iâ€™m pretty pumped to share a little Canadian love. East coast, represent.
On the side, Iâ€™ve been bartending at the LSPU Hall. I canâ€™t think of a better casual place for me to work.
Is this not the most self-gratuitous post youâ€™ve ever read?
Iâ€™m still working on Social Media Atlantic Canada. Itâ€™s a slow process, but Iâ€™m getting some amazing help along the way from people I will owe my life someday. Chris Guillebeau helped me face some fears, Andy Hayes gave me incredible business advice, and Doug Anweiler of Authentic Sea Coast is like a networking genius. My Matador Network colleagues are the best group of people to work with ever, and Leigh Shulman has gently coaxed me away from the ledge on more than one occasion.
Not to mention the people who have emailed me with support and love, like Sabina Lohr, Jodi Ettenberg, and Ayngelina Brogan. And the others who have commented on blog posts, asked me for guest posts, or gave me general shout-outs in their writing. And my friends I see on a weekly basis. And my family for not judging me for this blog. Thank-you.
Alright, Iâ€™m gonna go get drunk now.
