Sorry, I know it's been heavy around here. But yay! I'm going to Denver!
"Once you're there, you will be credentialed press and you will be
working every day. All day. Hard. Conventions are an *extreme* amount
of fun, but it's not a junket.
Stories will move on the Capital News Service wire, so in addition to
having a great experience and a great line for your resume, you'll get
some good clips, too."
I've never been to Colorado and since I'm a geek who's hellbent on seeing all 50 states in my lifetime I love adding a new one to the list. I also hear this convention might be a little bit important. Hmm?
There's so much going on and I have a feeling that things will look so different for me this time next year, but I have no idea how that'll be. I am so impatient.
I also got the check today for the first photography assignment for an event that I handled all by myself, from shooting to editing to prints. It was more than we agreed upon, too, because he was happy with my work. I hate talking about money and how much I should be paid for stuff like this because I shoot so much that it's crazy to get paid for it, but it really did feel good. One of my goals for May is to get an Etsy store up with some prints, but I really need time to do that and I haven't had a whole lot of that. I'm motivated to do it though, and it's pretty easy to set up a storefront for any kind of art there. If I was a better web designer I'd put my own gallery up but I have a feeling I'll go super micro and focused about that, which means it'll take me a long time.
Not so bad for a little old Thursday.
