You know I sleep under the peep’s desk in the afternoons, right? Right. Like this: I love this bed, by the way.
When I’m under Her desk, I hear a lot of stuff. Like typing and phone calls. Stuff like that. When I heard Her talking about looking for new freelance work, I thought, “what the hey? I can help with that.”
And you know how helpful I am.
So, here goes. My interview with the peep.
What type of freelance work are you looking for peep? Well, Stuart, you’re awfully kind to ask, but I don’t think your pals really care about that, they care about you. That’s why they visit The Scottie Chronicles.
Don’t argue with me please. You know I always get what I want. And right now, I want to interview you and help you reach out to a world of potential clients. I hate that phrase, “reach out” – don’t you? It’s so trite.
Let’s stay on topic, shall we? OK. Thanks for caring my precious boy. As a writer, I’m always on the hunt for new stories to tell.
What kind of stories? You’re not being very helpful, here. Don’t you know how to network? Where’s your elevator speech? I’m giving you a plethora of potential business referrals here and you’re mucking it up. WOW. You’re really serious about this. You’ve got that Scottie Focus mojo going on here don’t you?
Yes. And don’t you forget it. I get what I want. Always. Continue please. Who would hire you for an assignment? What type of work could you do for them? Yes sir. Here goes. As a non-fiction commercial freelance writer for hire, I write feature articles, website and social media content to support marketing and public relations campaigns, fundraising materials such as donor profiles and direct mail solicitations…things like that. My current clients include colleges and universities, nonprofit foundations and businesses. I’d like to branch into traditional and digital news media.
Now we’re getting somewhere. Do you have references and samples? Yes, I’ve got great references and lots of samples of my published work.
What about a website? Or a LinkedIn profile? Oh yes! I’ve got those marketing tools, but I must admit, my website needs updating. Can you help me with that Stuart?
I’m doing the best I can here, peep. Don’t look a gift dog in the mouth. Got it. Sorry. And Stuart, thanks for your help. You’re the best. Hey! Why don’t we write a book together????
There you have it folks. Shameless peep promotion. Email me at StuartTheScottie@hotmail.com if you want contact information for my peepstress. Next time, I’ll tell you about other peep. The artist. And graphic designer.
That took a lot outta me. It takes a village doesn’t it? Grrrrrr.
Thanks for reading. I gotta keep myself in green beans and this is the best way I know how.
Back to snooze land pour moi.
