I'm published on Levo League!

Screen shot 2013-07-22 at 8.32.27 PM Today is my second day at work at a new job (!) that I'll fill you in on (on which I shall fill you in? Nope, still ends in a preposition...in on which I shall fill you? Shudder! Too much.) at a later date, so this post will be short but sweet. My galpal Freyan just started working at Levo League, a great website for women around our age (20s-30s) trying to navigate their careers and busy lives with some amount of grace & humor. Shortly after she started there, she encouraged me to join their pitch list for article writers (she wrote a great article for them before ever working there), and so I did! And I wrote an article, and kaboom, they published it.

This article is specifically about the things I've learned over the past few months with my Etsy shop, and what you need to think about when starting a creative endeavor like this (especially when you also have a fulltime job), but hopefully I'll be able to write and share more articles from now on, on many topics! I love writing and seeing peoples' reactions to the words I put down, in whatever crazy order I have put them. It's good practice and good energy and gives me good self-confidence and good writing mojo. Good good good stuff. Blogging does that too, but Levo has a sliiiightly bigger audience than my blog currently does! I mean just by a little bit. A hundred readers here, a hundred readers there, you know how it is.

Check the article out (it's short) and let me know what you think in the comments!
