Get Paid to Blog from Home!

February 12, 2013



Yes it’s true. I’m finally starting to make good on this writing gig. It’s small change, as the visual above indicates, but I am excited nonetheless. Today is my first post for the literary magazine Ploughshares, based at Emerson College in Boston. The Ploughshares blog is a great conglomeration of deep thinking, shallow thinking, and everything in-between.

There are posts reviewing literary boroughs around the world, proving over and again that you don’t have to live in New York City to be a writer. There are posts that create Spotify playlists to go along with your favorite novel and posts to reinforce your deeply held belief that some reality television might actually be good for the soul. 

For my first blog post, I decided to encapsulate this idea of one-stop shopping by writing about fly-fishing, Buddhism, the Dewey Decimal System, and more. All I can say is that if you could pick one blog post to take with you onto a desert island–something beyond the wikiHow post on surviving on a desert island (too obvious!)–this would be the post. Click away and happy reading!
