I am so very thankful for a new opportunity that has come my way. After years of writing and blogging for myself, plus years of editing for friends and the blogs I regularly read, I'll now be getting paid to write and edit! It's for a site that I was already using (and loving) as a French language learner, so I fully support the content and site's purpose. I'm writing about learning Spanish, while posts I'm editing span five languages (the posts are mostly in English, about learning each of those languages).
It's flexible: I can work when I have the time, even though the startup is based in New York. And come fall, once I'm back in the states, there is opportunity to expand my knowledge, role, and working time. The founder has been very kind, and it feels great to receive recognition of my writing/editing from an outside point. I only started editing for the site this week, so it's all still very new to me. I'm learning how to write catchy blog post titles and intros!
Huge strides have been made towards my third 2014 resolution these past two weeks, thanks to continual effort and hard work! I'm excited and I'm grateful (and glad I hadn't yet quit my habit of browsing Craigslist pages from various cities around the world -- I saw the job post on Craigslist - Madrid!).
"It's not happy people who are thankful, it's thankful people who are happy."
