Paid to Play is going weekly! In between every fortnightly chat show, I want to bring you a separate update on how I’m going with getting Paid to Play, my takeaways from the experience and your feedback and questions!
I record and publish The Paid to Play Podcast because I believe that other people can value the things we enjoy doing, and that if we stand by that value of our play, we can all earn money – whether a little extra on top of our day jobs or enough to support ourselves completely – from them.
But one thing I always want to make sure I do is to practice what I preach. If I reckon others can stand by their play and ask for reward from those who value it, then so can I. And the best way I can do that is to talk about my own endeavours.
The good bit is, there have been some recent and very interesting developments on that front that I’m keen to share with you!
Over on my personal web log, I revisited some of the issues that stop me – and a lot of us – from getting stuck into the things that, if I gave myself a chance, could lead to my earning a living wage out of the things I’m honestly interested in and enjoy doing.
But from that post alone, you’d think I’ve not been making any progress. I’d like to apologise for that impression.
Because in the last couple of weeks, I managed to score myself a freelance gig.
