Happy New Year 2010!
Over the last few days, I have been kicking around what I want to accomplish this coming year. That is when I have not been working on my Full Disclosure Statement for my Golden Dawn blog.
On the Golden Dawn end of things, I am going to be keeping it simple. After all, I just started the PHAM subgrade of Adept Minor. As the joke goes around the lodge, every week that passes means that I am another month behind in the required work.
I did think about the possibility of Golden Dawn harmony. I decided that I would rather continue speaking my mind, despite the opinions of those who would like me to shut the h*** up.
I did decide after reading an internet success book that I would like to develop a love/hate relationship with some loud mouth, hopefully one that will send loads of traffic my way. I am thinking Ann Coulter will do just fine. I did have someone voluteer to be my enemy, but I think that I can do so much better. So Ann Coulter, I am coming for you.
I have yet to decide if I am going to put up any more of my writing on Helium. My output for them has suffered this last year. Part of the problem is that often when I should be writing more stuff for them, I am actually stuck spending the time rating articles to keep earning on my current set of articles. I would let that site go completely if it wasn't for the fact that I have a couple of articles that are actually doing fairly decently there.
Bukisa has became a completely low priority. The fact that they only pay for unique visitors does not fit well with my writing habits. I tend to write highly related sets of articles, therefore getting paid by the pageview works better for me.
I am going to continue writing stuff for the student newspaper, including the astrology column that I am reprinting though Associated Content. I am also going to develop a set of astrology articles for Constant Content to test the waters for that market. After all, I realize that I actually like doing that type of writing, even if occasionally it seems more like creative writing than anything else.
I do plan on trying to get my act together sooner in the upcoming semester. The voice of my sister nagging me all semester made me realize that I am quite willing to toss a lit match on that particular gasoline-covered bridge; for some reason, being in college and working as a writer is more important to me than the opinion of the last relative still to talk to me.
And as always, I will be hunting for those elusive well-paying writing gigs, and those articles that end up getting a lot of Google Lust.
So I think that I can accomplish all this, especially if I can figure out an annoying way to do so. Remember Ann Coulter: 2010 is our year!
