I’ve been away for a while. That’s the curse of finding paid work: not as much time to spend on the fun stuff. But, I have been able to squeeze in a bit of time to experiment with video. I’m trying to spice up my posts for Gadling and Luxist with footage that I’m shooting with a Flip HD. So far, my work is nothing short of amateurish, but I’m hoping it at least brings a bit more life to the stories I’m pulling together.
This video is part of a growing trend in my travel writing work: hotdogs. For Gadling, I’ve covered dogs in East Anglia, Curtain Bluff (a resort in Antigua) and Madrid. Maybe I’ll do something on Gray’s Papaya soon. It’s a great local place for dogs.
My regular gigs continue to be varied. I’ve added DailyFinance and BloggingStocks (the latter daily, the former occasionally) to the grind, and I’m having fun with them. I also got picked up recently by Envy recently to write a few travel pieces, and I hope to write more for that mag in the near future.
So, I’m keeping off the streets, but I hope to be writing regularly for the Migrant Blogger again. I miss the fun stuff.
