Taking Over the Blogosphere, One Piece at a Time (Exciting Announcement at CCIQ!)

2011 August 24

My quest for blogosphere domination via insane amounts of guest posting has paid off in many ways (including the securing of a rather high profile freelance gig the very first day my Hire Me page went up!)  And today, I have an exciting announcement that promises to leave even more Cordelian footprints across the magical interwebs.

You may have read my recent guest post, How to be an Awesome Employee in a Less-Than-Awesome Job, over at Brazen Life.  (If you haven’t, I’ll pause momentarily to allow you to do so.  Humming the Night Court theme song quietly to myself (and dancing just a little bit)…)

I was excited to see the great response it got in the comments, and apparently Brazen was too, because I’ve been asked to be a regular contributor!

Starting in September, I’ll be doing two posts a month for the Brazen Life blog, which is an extension of the fantastic site Brazen Careerist.  It’s all about encouraging and helping ambitious, tail-kicking young professionals to excel in their careers and their lives—something I am of course all about myself.  The blog is heading in an even more forward-thinking, outside-the-box direction and bringing in a bunch of fantastic, spunky new talent (how many adjectives can I pepper into one sentence?), and I couldn’t be more thrilled to be asked to be a part of it all.

I’ll be doing announcement posts here whenever a post of mine goes up on Brazen, but I would highly encourage you to subscribe Brazen Life as well so you can see the fully array of awesomeness that’s coming down the pipe.  Check out their subscription page to sign up for new posts (by a ridiculously impressive number of methods, I must say), and stay tuned for my first contributor post going up some time in September.

Huzzah!

      It’s a deal! (And thank you!) :)

    OMG!!! YAYAYAY!!!!  You will not believe me, but when we were e-mailing earlier this week and I was checking out your post and saw the 40+ comments, I was thinking “they’re totally gonna hire her”.  Haha.  I’m SO happy for you! you rock!

      Thanks, Amber! I do believe you, although I still *don’t* quite believe my good luck. Now comes the challenge of thinking up some additional quality post ideas each month. Fingers crossed! :)

    Oh and what is the other high profile freelance gig??? did i miss that?

      I’m not sure I really officially announced it, although I kind of inundated my poor Twitter feed about it when I first got it. I’m doing some freelance work for a California business muckity-muck now. Just a few assignments a week, but it’s a start!

    Congrats! I enjoyed reading your guest post there. Hopefully you will continue to inspire this close to burned out, not so young professional!

    • http://www.cordeliacallsitquits.com Cordelia

      And hopefully I will respond to your email that’s been marked as high priority in my inbox for forever now! I am a horrible correspondent.

      The short response is: “CONGRATS to you as well!!”

      The longer response will be coming shortly. :)

        Thanks! No worries, it sounds like you’ve been really busy!

    Eee!!  That’s awesome!  Go you!  (Now, I will quit the excessive abuse of exclamation points. ;)  )

      Aw, thank you! No need to defend the exclamation point to me. (!) :D

    Love your article at Brazen, & I just fwd’ed it to approximately 7 of my closest friends. Glad I found my way here… now if you need me I’ll be lurking through your old posts. xo

      Fantastic! Thanks for the shares and I’m glad to have you on board!

    Way to go Cordelia, even your announcement posts are more interesting than most bloggers regular posts.

    That’s exciting to hear your success and hope it goes well for you.  I need to get on writing guest posts again.  It’s hard to find the time, but it definitely is worth it.

    Definitely keep me updated on how it is all going.

      Aww, that’s so sweet!  You just made my day.  :)
