ActiveRain Plus Blog Talk Radio Equals Paid Writing Assignment (LOL)


ActiveRain Plus Blog Talk Radio Equals Paid Writing Assignment (LOL)

Who knew that this post:


Plus Co-Hosting with The Value Pages Group (and firing off a sample of my writing in a little text box) would get me a freelance writing job.

I love this place. Seriously...

You guys have no idea who is reading and auditing your blogs. I'm having mad fun at work making better use of LinkedIn and the rest of my social media accounts and will confess I was being facetious when I picked the Lookie-Lou-Itis link for them to sample (LOL).

God loves fools and little children. Based upon my work they seem to think I'd make a nice NY Working Moms writer. How cool is that? Very!

I sent them a 74 word wee people bio (LOL). I am soooo into the monetize your bog thing. Now I have to figure out how to be "informative and clever." They believe I have the clever part down pat (LOL). Is Wordy C informative? Hmm... I may have to act like a Paralegal over there, eh? Oh well... The link love will be interesting (LOL). ;-)

Congratulations, C.  Doing what you love and getting paid for it. 

Posted by Jane Peters, Los Angeles real estate concierge services (Home Jane Realty) over 10 years ago

Thank you, Jane. Now I am sitting over here typing in MS Word 2010 Beta. I never blog in beta... I guess there is a first time for everything, eh? ;-)

Way to go Carolyn!  I think they're right... you'll be great!  Congratulations!

Posted by Steve Shatsky over 10 years ago

Thank you, janeAnne. I am thinking of using that one over there. :-)

Thank you, Steve. I am looking forward to it. Drafted one article and have four more to go.

That is just so awesome, the power of the 'Rain is just too much to ignore!

Posted by Richard Weisser, Richard Weisser Retired Real Estate Professional (Richard Weisser Realty) over 10 years ago

Brilliant people for sure...hiring you to do what you do so well.

 Love that you shared this perfect example AR and success! You never cease to amaze me. It is time to head back to Maryland!

Richard, this place is amazing and I love playing in the Rain. :-)

Margaret, I should be in the hood for RainCamp. I am trying to figure out how many days I can run amok in MD, DC and VA (LOL). :-)

C, nice work. We are all proud of you. You have got the magic gift of powerful words. All the best.

Posted by Karen Watkins (LRA Real Estate Group LLC) over 10 years ago

C, way to go! I have read quite a few stories of how blogging here has brought speaking and writing opps.

And by the way, the pic of you is very nice!

Posted by Andrea Swiedler, Realtor, Southern Litchfield County CT (Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices New England Properties) over 10 years ago

Thank you, Karen. I hope to put it to good use while I'm enjoying myself. :-)

Thank you, Andrea. Do you know what was a huge help? Moderating a group forum of over 1,000 writers who contributed over 28,000 on-line articles (Club Chaos), writing over 950 posts here (outside and inside blogs)  and being a regular contributor to a team blog. My wee people bio was fun:

I QUOTE: "Carolyn Tann-Starr, a regular contributor to ClubChaosAgents.com and The Value Pages Group, is a Graphic Artist and Real Estate Paralegal raising two sons who are learning disabled. Noah, the Net Geek, suffers from Autism and Stephen, the Minion Blur, suffers from PDD-NOS. Her "Life With Wee People" series regarding being a work at home mom with special needs kids has been featured on ActiveRain.com and in other social media forums." They get my contact e-mail after that.

Writing about the wee people creates all kinds of interesting e-mail. Who knew it would become a tag line for me getting paid to write? Cool (LOL). :-)

That's amazing C.  Congratulations on making what seems to come so naturally to you into an actual paying job that will benefit others. -- Tanya in Montreal

Posted by Tanya Nouwens, Montreal Real Estate Broker & Stager (RE/MAX ROYAL (JORDAN) INC. / Tanya Nouwens Inc. www.readysetsold.ca) over 10 years ago

C - You're a shining example of how what was originally real estate blogging has expanded into so much more and taking journeys into previously unplanned areas of life.  Congratulations on your new freelance gig.

Posted by FN LN over 10 years ago

Ah.  We are close to Office 2010.  I wish you hadn't told me because I HAVE to have the latest software.

Posted by Jane Peters, Los Angeles real estate concierge services (Home Jane Realty) over 10 years ago

Thank you, Tanya. I am looking forward to it. :-)

Thank you, Marc. It will certainly be an adventure. :-)

Jane, go download the beta off of the Microsoft website (LOL). It's gorgeous. :-)

Posted by C Tann-Starr (Tann Starr & Associates, Inc.) over 10 years ago

I am not one bit surprised at this news!  You are going to be great (or I should say, greater)!

Posted by Ann Allen Hoover, CDPE SRES ASP e-PRO Realtor - Homes for Sale - AL (RE/MAX Advantage South) over 10 years ago

Ann, I am banging away getting ready for Wednesday's show while working on five drafts for next week. I have to introduce you guys to my gal pal Jessica. She's posing for me. Chicka is gorgeous and such a sweetie pie. Looking forward to chatting about my sketchbook shenanigans while I get prepared for the new gig (LOL). I am doing a recap of the radio show because I think it may be useful. I have to get that on my outside blog ASAP. My kids are hindering my efforts. Stephen is in rare form. They ate all the oranges and I can't keep them out of my kitchen (LMAO). I may make them all take a nap soon. Will blog about the peace and quiet if I pull it off. :-)

Posted by C Tann-Starr (Tann Starr & Associates, Inc.) over 10 years ago
C I just stopped in to say I love that photo of you in the post!!
Posted by Cheryl Johnson over 10 years ago

Hi Cher! :-) Will call you if I find a sane moment. It seems publicists are lining their clients up for air time. I have homework to do because I don't know who our potential guests are (LOL). This should be mad fun. :-)

Posted by C Tann-Starr (Tann Starr & Associates, Inc.) over 10 years ago

Way to go Carolyn - you inspire me daily!  Can't wait to start reading the content!

Posted by Sheila Kennedy (J29 Project) over 10 years ago

Thank you, Sheila. We are going to have fun with this because they're fine with me writing what ever I want. I shall be linking back and quoting a whole bunch of AR people (LOL). There are a lot of helpful people explaining how to do cool stuff over here. Professional career advice from fun people. What a nice way to keep your day job while earning another stream of revenue. :-)    

Posted by C Tann-Starr (Tann Starr & Associates, Inc.) over 10 years ago

Very cool C, congrats on the new adventure my friend and best of luck.
