Humble Beginnings, Part III
So I found some great websites to write for and they gave me some extra money to use for whatever.
Then I finally went to Denver, CO to see what my friends were talking about. See, my little circle of college friends had this mass exodus to Colorado in 2008, leaving me here in my current city of Tucson. Now, don’t get me wrong – there are good things about Tucson, AZ; however, for me at least, those good things had come and gone and now I was at a strange, slow crossroads.
So after many years of trying to get me to come up and see the city, I decided to do just that. And guess what – I liked it. Liked it to the point where the change of course began.
And now we come to this – the crossroads of life where to the right, I stay here in Tucson and hope that the economy here improves before I turn fifty (I’m only thirty something) or I go to the left to Denver where opportunities may present themselves quicker and for a long term solution.
Ah, but you ask – “Gina, where does the freelancing come in?” Simple – my crazy idea is to make a life as a freelancer in a new city. I know; it’s probably completely insane, especially in this economy. So friends, this is why I present this little piece of the net called Freelancer R – I’m a new freelance writer and I’m going to tell you how that life goes.
Luckily, you – the reader – are only about seven or eight months behind me, but this is where things get nuts. In the next couple of posts, I’ll give some insights on the move to Denver, on the financials of moving out of state, of trying to make things work in a crazy economy, etc.
Oh and I’ll also pimp out my website, my articles, and stories that I come with. Duh, you thought this was just me telling you about freelancing? This is a career, baby! Yeah!
