But this time for graphic design. I figure a lot of the dream day jobs I see require some sort of design experience in addition to my fabulous writing and editing skills. If anyone has thoughts on this subject, please let me know. I’m open to all forms of advice and input (and, short of anything illegal and cleaning, job opportunities).
I’ll get back to my writing about the asinine things in the world that bother me and whatnot shortly, but first, a programming note.
I’m looking to pay someone (that’s right, I will give you money in exchange for a service) to redesign and code my website/blog(s) so that they’re a) all in one place, b) pretty, and c) reflect this newfound bravery of being a serious writer and performer. Perhaps you scoffed at my use of the word bravery. Well I understand your questioning but must offer an explanation: I like to eat food, wear clothing, and have shelter. I am not the type of person who can live without knowing where a paycheck is coming from and how much it will be. That’s why I have a real-life-health-insurance-included-day-job: the bravery is in letting me be me on the internet and not really minding what my day job means. (Phew. I guess that takes care of this week’s therapy session.)
The ideal candidate will appreciate my sense of humor and whimsy , have experience with both Wordpress and Tumblr, and work for cheap enough that I can afford you.
Based on these things, I’m guessing my ideal candidate will also be a student or otherwise new-to-design person who doesn’t mind that I can’t really afford much and really needs to build their portfolio. (Plus, hey! I write really awesome recommendations on LinkedIn and will promote the heck out of you if we hit it off.) Also, I have various skills we can trade on. Most of them involve playing an excellent wingwoman and making your resume stand out.
In conclusion, if you are or know someone who might be the ideal candidate of which I speak, please contact me. I’m super awesome to work with and will totally give you a shout out when I’m on national television.
