Fabulous Freelancer Friday: Musings and Job Postings for the Week of 2/11/19-2/15/19

Hello, everyone! Friday has made its way to us again, so here I am with my usual roundup of thoughts and opportunities!

In blog happenings, this week I slightly revamped the footer to include my affiliate disclosures, and added new graphics to the sidebar. I also implemented my very first pop-up! As for traffic, my reviews continue to be particularly well-received.

Remember, I welcome reviews from our freelancing community, too! Please visit my Guest Posting Rules to learn more.

MUSINGS

  • Speaking of reviews, some of you might remember my recent post, “What’s the Potential of Steemit, a Monetized Social Media Platform?”
    • I continue to post content from this blog over there, as well as additional creative sorts of things (here’s my profile). As a writer and a hobby photographer, I’ve found it a great community to learn from.
    • Truth be told, I haven’t really gotten around to the whole community participation aspect as of yet. So, imagine my surprise when a member nominated me for the Week 45 Pay It Forward Curation Contest! I’m not entirely sure what the rewards mean, but I feel honored, just the same!
  • I haven’t really watched much of the Academy Awards in years, but I was still aghast to learn that they’re relegating cinematography, hair/makeup, film editing, and (to a lesser degree of aghast-ness) live-action short to commercial breaks.
  • That whole debacle brought to mind the movie Hostiles, whose cinematography is among the best I’ve ever seen. Ever. Actually, I cannot say enough about how profoundly important this movie is on several levels. Hostiles takes the traditional Western genre, turns it on its head, and creates a masterpiece of social commentary. Here’s the trailer:
  •  I encourage you to Read Chief Phillip Whiteman’s Op-ed for Indian Country Today, Hostiles Movie Reflects Native Culture with Sensitivity and Accuracy
    • Two of Chief Whiteman’s poignant quotes really bring to light the movie’s message:
      • “Scott Cooper’s Hostiles movie is a reminder to humankind that we are all connected, a notion that is a large part of Cheyenne culture and one that this country needs right now.”
      • “We are all capable of being hostile, but love is a far greater force…I encourage you to see this movie, and go with an open mind and open heart.”
