And now a little about the “work” aspect of our road tripping lifestyle.
Over a year ago I committed to finally making good use of my overpriced journalism degree by building my writing career and expanding my editorial capabilities beyond the world of three legged dogs and bone cancer.
Although I was a regular contributor to the Eureka Times Standard Newspaper for about a decade (the main newspaper of our old stomping grounds) and wrote daily articles for our Tripawds.com community, I never seemed to have time to pursue actual paid writing gigs from new clients.
Faced with the reality that my current writing efforts weren’t going anywhere or generating income unless I made an honest attempt to pitch my services, I started looking for outlets that could improve my talents while actually paying something.
My efforts are slowly paying off. Here’s my latest piece about the beautiful area we fell in love with back in 2009:
“Red Feather Lakes: Northern Colorado’s Best Kept Secret.”
I wrote this for Go Colorado, a fantastic website about the gems that make the Centennial State our ideal place to homestead during summer.
