Fabulous Freelancer Friday: Musings and Job Postings for the Week of 1/7/19-1/11/19

Hello, everyone, and welcome to my first Fabulous Freelancer Friday post!

The goal is for this to be a newsletter of sorts, since many of you are subscribing to my posts via email anyway. This past week has really seen an influx of fellow freelancing millennials. Thank you all for being here, and I’m wishing each and every one of you lots of luck in your respective freelancing journeys!

Reminder: I’m now accepting guest posts! They’re scheduled in for Mondays, the next available slot being January 21st. For more information, please see my Guest Posting Rules.

With that, let’s begin!

MUSINGS

  • Upon reading the HBO news article, “What to Know About the Game of Thrones Prequel,” which included a cast announcement, I was particularly happy to learn of these additions:
    • Georgie Henley – Such a versatile actress, she’s perhaps best known as Lucy in The Chronicles of Narnia films. She also was excellent as a young Jane Eyre in the eponymous miniseries starring Ruth Wilson.
    • Toby Regbo – Francis from my favorite television series, Reign!
  • You know how sometimes, your phone’s news feed includes some really “where on earth does this come from” information? Mine certainly does! Yet, it’s in that randomness where really uplifting, beautiful, unique stories can be told.
    • I’d never heard of Chanco, a baby girl in Japan who was born with what could possibly be the best full head of hair ever. She recently turned a year old, and has, unsurprisingly perhaps, become a hair model. What’s great about this, though, is that her Pantene commercial adorably conveys an important message:

JOB POSTINGS

Those who are regular readers to my blog know how I’ve cautioned against any and all forms of “provide sample articles” and “submit your rates” job postings.

To that end, something I’ve noticed more of lately are postings that ask for applicants not to write sample articles, but to propose several potential article titles that they’d want to write about. Beware of this, too! Sure, it might really be a test of creativity, but it’s also, in my opinion, a tricky way to get ideas for articles without actually hiring anyone.

Please do your own due diligence before officially applying to any and all job postings!

Here are some opportunities that, at the very least, look interesting in some capacity:

Until next time!
