    What I Learned Reporting on the Death of Princess Diana

    I was 20 years old when I landed my first job in professional radio. I began work as what we called a board operator, the person in charge of making sure that syndicated programming, in this case the Leeza Gibbons Top 40 Countdown on Mix 96.1 FM in Davenport, Iowa, ran according to schedule. This was a time when satellite delivered programming was reserved for talk radio and before automation software began making entry level positions in radio obsolete.

    Confessions of a Fanfiction Writer

    Confessions of a Fanfiction Writer

    I have been writing fanfiction for thirteen years; sometimes I am very on top of my game, while the rest of the time I am glaring at my computer screen like it is the reason I am unable to think of anything. When I first started writing I did not even have a computer—I literally had a binder with a divider for every story I was writing at the time, which was a lot, and probably a dozen notebooks—and my ability to write was laughably terrible.

    Making Money Online: Is Opinion Outpost Worth It?

    Making Money Online: Is Opinion Outpost Worth It?

    Taking surveys in exchange for money is one of the most popular ways of making money online and one of the reasons for this is because there are so many different websites that allow you to do this, that making at least some money is normally guaranteed from at least one of the websites.
