I have an announcement.
I am not pregnant.
Admit it, that was your first thought. But there are no babies cooking over here.
Some time ago I mentioned that I was going back to work. And then I never mentioned it again. So now, finally (the not knowing has been killing you, hasn’t it?), here’s the scoop:
I’m working again. For money. Because don’t get me wrong, I’ve been working all day, every day at a really fantastic job. It’s so fantastic, in fact, that I’m going to continue doing it (motherhood, in case you’re head-scratching), but I’m going to mix in a few paid gigs, too. Turns out, I missed working. I missed helping people craft pieces of writing. Now, after a nice stretch of all mom, all the time, I’m shaking things up a bit and couldn’t be more excited.
My new professional home is Missy Stevens Writes. It’s not a blog; all blogging will stay here.* Missy Stevens Writes is where you go if you need copy. Any copy. For anything.
Today I’m also very excited to announce my relationship with Eli Rose Social Media. I’ll be working with the talented founders, Liz Jostes and Kristin Zaslavsky – you may also know them as A Belle, a Bean and a Chicago Dog and Taming Insanity – on all manner of marketing and communications word-smithing. There happens to be a post about pitch letters on their site today. If you’ve ever wondered how to pitch a company, go take a look.
There you have it. The big news. Thanks for indulging me here today; we’ll be back to regularly scheduled wondering and whatnot tomorrow.
*Here, by the way, will soon be getting a face lift and going through some small changes. Look at that, something else for you to look forward to.
BEFORE YOU GO!
Again with the shouting? Sorry about that. Sincerely. I just don’t want you to miss this:
My wallet isn’t even winded yet. Come on, let’s make it hurt a little. Please. We can do better. When you’re done here, click that link and help make my wallet sweat, won’t you?
