I've got mail!

Today I received this in the mail . . . my first paycheck for writing articles!!! About a month ago I started writing for a Catholic organization that publishes monthly parish newletters across the country, and now I will get weekly assignments for which I will get paid. Getting the mail has never been so fun.

What an ego boost that would be! Congratulations. Perhaps you will be on your way to making some serious dough.

Congratulations on Johnny Paycheck!

Now if only we could get paid for writing blogs, we'd all be rich ;)

Like I always say...don't forget the "little" people who knew you before you were all rich and famous!"

By the way, if that's your house in the background - I'd buy it in a second. If it's your next door neighbors house, well, I'm sure yours is much prettier! :)

I didn't cash my first writing check for months. It was the first tangible reward I had received in years and I just kept staring at it.

Which newsletter? I'm wondering if our parish gets it. What will you be writing about? Are the articles online?

Karen said...

Woo-hoo! Congrats!

Kim,

Uhm, yes, that's our house. I'm looking at the mold on the bricks over the front porch, though, and I'm thinking I need to add that to my husband's "Honey-Dew" list.

Holly said...

That's often the best kind of mail!!

Lisa said...

How wonderful, Bia! Many congratulations!

Congratulations, Bia! What wonderful news. Sorry it took me this long to get back to your blog and read it. I've been swamped this month. Will you post some of your articles the way Rachel does (or do they not allow that)? Hope lots more of this mail arrives in your mailbox (in front of your lovely house).
