About a week ago, I submitted a article to our local paper about the truth of being a CNA. I did not get paid for it. It was exposure I say. I sent an email to my contact there now about another idea for an article. He changed it around. So now I am working on another article about frugal living, saving money in the area. I figure the more I write, it can be added to my portfolio of my writing. It may also lead me to a paying writing gig too. You never know. Wish me luck.
