I have been freelancing for a company called I Say! Digital who have been paying me to write blog posts for posh London fashion shop Poison Angel. I basically just tell people to buy their pretentious, over priced clothes.
And when I say 'over priced'... I mean ridiciulously over priced!
(They can charge £1,200 for a hoodie, but only pay me £30 to write 7 blog posts for them?!? Daylight robbery!)
As disgusted as I may be with myself right now for 'selling out' to the fashion world (a world which I knew next to nothing about until two weeks ago) I am just happy to have been paid to write. A small step in the right direction for my fledgling career.
It doesn't pay the rent, but it is kinda fun. Just ten more years of blogging for them and I will be able to afford one of their t-shirts. Super!
P.S - The title of this post is a line from a song which has been stuck in my head for the best part of the day;
'Heavyweight Champion of the World' by Reverend & The Makers.
Whatever happened to those guys?
P.P.S - It was nice to write a blog post again without having to worry about fulfilling a word count. Screw you, word count!
