Verb Nerd Industries is my pitch site for freelance writing, editing and blogging gigs. Why bug all you innocent hikers with this news?
Well. If so many of you hadn’t repeatedly encouraged me to keep updating Two-Heel Drive, I’d have probably given up ages ago. And I’d have no track record to sell potential buyers of stories and blog posts. Recap of the projects that have come my way thanks to a simple hiking guide:
- Hikes column, San Jose Mercury News.
- Mobile guides project, EveryTrail.com
- Freelance and full-time work at Trailspace.com
Granted this probably won’t pave the way to the New Yorker or anything, but it’s a substantial body of work that wouldn’t exist if I hadn’t kept slogging away on the blog all these years. So this is a long way of saying thanks for hanging around all these years.
And there’s this: since this blog seems to be the only thing getting me any work, I’ll have to keep at it.
