Over the holidays, a colleague from a couple jobs ago asked me about about writing for their company blog. Marketing, basically — not the most engaging subject matter, but the pay is decent and there’s no threat of compromising my self-importance. Just submitted my first article; the research required made it out to be a pretty fun experience, actually. Assuing they like what I wrote, they’ll help keep me busy in the coming months. Might just be the type of opportunity I need to move forward in my new career.
