Cash In


A very wise young man recently made me understand that I'm kind of an idiot. For some time now, this site has landed me freelance writing gigs as well as the occasional new media consulting job. Still, I've never used DXM to actively solicit potential clients, instead simply relying on the exposure I get here, at the Huffington Post and so on to speak for itself. In other words, I've always excelled in promoting just about everyone and everything except myself.

Well, considering the number of hits I regularly get and the viral readership I can pull in through my connections and contacts, it only makes sense to be more proactive in my search for freelance work (as was suggested by the aforementioned young man). Hence, there's now an extended bio attached to my profile in the top right hand corner of this page as well as information about just a few of the services I've been quietly providing on and off for the last year and a half and will continue making available to businesses, political organizations, private parties, you get the picture.

Just figured I'd give the regulars a heads-up that this is the direction I'm heading in these days. (Obviously, It shouldn't have much of an effect on the output here, since this site essentially acts as one big advertisement for me.) If nothing else, you can now see my extensive work experience spelled out in black and white.

Thanks from the Management. We now return you to your regularly scheduled nonsense.

Did you mean to say "new" media consultant, or "news"?

New -- as in new media. Digital. Course I deal with traditional media as well. I figure I've been making money here and there doing this for quite a while -- time to make it official.

Tara Parker said...

My mistake. Wasn't thinking about that.

You should guest lecture at CU's SJMC and observe the painful degree to which the professors are "uncomfortable" with the merging of traditional and "new" media.

It's like the Hatfields and McCoys here. Guns a'blazin'.

And because we'll buy you beer.

Oh, and on a serious note, godspeed on the freelance highway!

Quantcast.com is what CNN.com uses for their traffic ratings.

Congrats, Tom. Your tenacity has officially worn me down. You're back in the fold. Hope it was worth all the effort, man.
