From Nothin’ To Something

And just like that I’m about to re-enter the realm of the gainfully employed. Granted, it’s a temporary copy-editing gig with a four-to-six week window, but it is a gig nonetheless  and one for which I’m tremendously grateful — and the finite time frame makes the 20-mile commute through the thick of the city that much less unbearable. Plus it pays a bitchin’ hourly wage — a few bucks more per than I typically charge for my freelance webstuff services.

And as a bonus it takes a bit of the building pressure off a second interview scheduled this Friday for a full-time content management job much closer to home. In other words, if I don’t land that one, at least I’ve got this thing to fall back on across the threshold of the new year.

I report tomorrow at 8 a.m.

Will Campbell arrived in town via the maternity ward at Good Sam Hospital way back in OneNineSixFour and has never stopped calling Los Angeles home. Presently he lives in Silver Lake with his wife Susan, their cat Rocky, dogs Terra and Hazel, and a red-eared slider turtle named Mater. Blogging since 2001, Will's web endeavors extend back to 1995 with, a comprehensive theater site that was well received but ever-short on capital (or a business model). The pinnacle of his online success (which speaks volumes) arrived in 1997, when much to his surprise, a hobby site he'd built called VisuaL.A. was named "best website" in Los Angeles magazine's annual "Best of L.A." issue. He enjoys experiencing (and writing about) pretty much anything creative, explorational and/or adventurous, loves his ebike, is a better tennis player than he is horr golfer, and a lover of all creatures great and small -- emphasis on "all."
