In an attempt to transform myself into a professional writer – my husband did it, so why can’t I? – I applied to two contributor positions at two book-related blogs. I don’t know if it’ll go anywhere; I sent them some writing samples from fashion_piranha and wrote a nice cover letter. Picking what to send them was hard, though – they don’t want reviews, which is 90% of what I do. I guess if I want to try to rank above amateur, I need to work on my feature material.
