Happy Sunday. I’m currently cozied up in my booth (yes, my booth) at Starbucks working on homework (kind of) while drinking my chai tea from a RED CUP. Starbucks…you’re jumping the gun here. It’s literally October 25th and you are playing Christmas music and serving drinks in red cups already? I’m not opposed…in fact, I think red cups should be around all year…but still.
I just wanted to pop in and say that I’m officially a writer for Slant News! If you don’t know what Slant is, it’s a news site similar to BuzzFeed that is rapidly growing and expanding. It’s currently ranked just below BuzzFeed, but I have a feeling that will change soon because I think the website is more user-friendly and modern.
Anyway, I will be writing about five posts a week but since I just got the job I submitted some of my older pieces. This “9 Gross Things” article that I published on Thought Catalog last year is currently in the top spot over at Slant! For some reason, this particular article has been my most popular ever. (It reached 1 billion last week on TC!) I guess people are really interested in how disgusting girls can be. 🙂
Two of the other articles I published yesterday are here and here. I would love if ya’ll checked them out (since I am paid per view) and gave me some feedback! I’m really excited to be able to write more and not feel guilty that I’m wasting time since it’s actually a job for me now again rather than just for fun. Not that I should have felt guilty about it, but I did.
I just wanted to pop in and share that will you guys because I was pretty excited when they reached out to me from finding me on Thought Catalog! I have to get back to homework now (ew) but I will definitely be on the blog more this upcoming week. I have my 3 week post-op appointment on Wednesday, so that will be interesting.
