A while back I decided to get with the program - advance into the modern age, so to speak - and create my very own website for my blossoming freelance writing business. You know people nowadays, they love the internet, and I thought it would be nice if, instead of photocopying my articles over and over again at Staples and sending them off to various editors to show them just how brilliant I am I'd show them that I'm actually really brilliant by sending them a neat little link to a personal webpage highlighting some of my professional writing, as well as unpublished pieces.
Here's the thing though, I'm not brilliant, at least not when it comes to things like creating a webpage from scratch. I mean, I love the web and all, don't get me wrong, but the only reason I'm able to write on this blog on a regular basis is because my wonderful friend Mike took the time and energy to help me make it (and by the way, I'm pretty sure "make it" isn't the correct lingo for such a complicated process, but whatever) and the good people at WordPress make such easy-to-use blogging programs. Or software. Something like that.
Anyway, I decided to enlist some help as that seemed the only reasonable thing to do and hired my friends Nick and Cory, who actually are brilliant when it comes to doing things like making a webpage, to help me out.
And - ta dah - they did it!
Or, at the very least, it makes me feel totally awesome.
In future weeks I hope to learn some Very Important Things like how to update this webpage and how to use it to my advantage to get a million dollar book deal and all that, but for now, I'm just very happy to show this initial version off.
And, as always, very grateful to these genius, technically-savvy, creative types in my life.
If you'd like to hire Nick and Cory to do something totally amazing for you, you can contact me and maybe, if you're worthy, I'll hook it up. I mean, maybe, if you promise to truly respect their super talent and how cool they are and everything.
