An Ode to Carrie Bradshaw


Great news! I’ve been offered the chance to guest-blog on Simply Solo! I know I’m still a long way to go from being like Carrie Bradshaw, but hey, it’s a cute start.

I stumbled upon Simply Solo the other day while I was browsing through the tags page. I was reading the latest post and realized that it was a guest blogger writing a piece specifically for Simply Solo as a featured post. I thought to myself, wow… I think… I’m interested. *grinning*

So I braved myself to email and ask how to be a guest blogger, or whether or not it’s even possible – not knowing whether you can ask or you have to be asked. But then I got a sweet reply saying that there will be an opening for me next month if I’m interested to write an original piece for Simply Solo. Interested? Uh-huh!!!!

And so the pressure’s on now. Ugh… *coldsweat*

What to write now?? So many topics, so little ideas?!! Come on now.. it’s not the time to have a writer’s block! Hmmm… I’ll sleep on it. Dont worry, cgryp.. I’ll write you something. If Carrie Bradshaw can do this for those Manolos, I can do this for…errrr…more traffic to my blog? Haha..

Okay, kidding aside, I do want to be like Carrie Bradshaw – minus the credit card debts, of course. How marvelous would it be to be making a living from writing?

I know it’s not all fun, Robert Benchley said “The free-lance writer is a man who is paid per piece or per word or perhaps”. But I guess, I’m just dreaming of finally being able to do what I want to do. To be paid for something that I actually enjoy doing. Yeah yeah I am a paid so-called copy writer at the moment, but it’s different. I want to write my own pieces, my own ideas, my own words…not writing something someone forced me to write.

Anyhow, this is a good start. At least, I can train this brain and fingers again. They have been in a deep zombie-mode for almost a year now. Oh, for the record, there’s no pay in being a guest blogger for Simply Solo. I just trully appreciate being given the chance to write. Simply thankful.
