New project in the works

In Uncategorized on September 16, 2008 at 1:51 am

As some of you who read this may or may not know, in life I am a giant nerd. I play a live action role playing game in a national organization, and up to this point I haven’t been able to find any real blogs or guides to the game. So, I’ve decided to start my own.

This is a way for me to delve deeper into the game community and to delve into monetizing blogs at the same time. Up to this point, I have been unable to successfully monetize my blogs. I have affiliated with Amazon and Drive Thru RPG (a site that sells downloads of game manuals) and am trying to use Adsense more efficiently.

If anyone has any advice on what I could do better, please let me know. In some ways I’m flying blind, and in others I’m not sure I entirely trust the advice I’ve been given on making money through blogging.

Here’s a link to the new blog about Vampire: The Masquerade.

Welcome to my guide on freelance writing

For the past few weeks, I’ve been throwing around the idea of revamping this blog. Trust me, it was a lot of hard work and hard thinking.

Originally, I was going to change my focus to freelance journalism, moving away from the traditional student journalism I started this blog on.

Instead of choosing a topic so narrow, I finally decided to focus on freelance writing. Most of the information is going to be about freelance journalism, but I will also focus on getting jobs in the business, taking care of your finances, finding markets for fiction, and networking.

I hope the people that read this find in it a valuable resource.
