Well, I enjoyed it most of the time

My editor has been canned by About.com, leaving all of us who worked as "guest writers" out -- at least, I can no longer access the "Staff" section of the board, so I'm assuming. They have an "apply now" in the guide section, but I know so little about modern mainstream country it's not a job I'd be qualified for (unless they want an editor on the "country music" site who actively despises Carrie Undertalented, Faith Hill, Tim McGraw, and Toby Keith....).

So I finally wrote back to Roughstock; I'd been meaning to get on board with them some while ago but I neglected to because I'm lazy and also sites like that are really preaching to the choir and I liked spreading the word about the alt-country folks where it might have done some good -- to people who didn't know about them and needed to.

Well, we'll see how it goes. I know I had my quibbles with her (and more than my share of grousing), but on the whole, I liked having the contacts.

I suppose it's time to actually update my website and figure out blogging software, or just link it to my MySpace blog.

I did enjoy the show last night; I'll have to review it somewhere, since I took all the notes and pictures and everything.

In the meantime, the insanity continues.

Adopt one today! * Adopt one today! * Adopt one today! * Adopt one today! * Adopt one today!

Well that sucks but you'd think they'd at least have the courtesy to tell you since you had a contract

Ah, well. One of these days!

Yeah, I know. It would be VERY nice if they would contact us directly and inform us about these things - I have a LOT of content up at that site, and Shel doesn't know at all what's going to happen to it.

Lucky! :-) I can't even manage to grab a Gold (although I did finally nab a stripey and one of the fancy new pinks).

I like the new Risa & Hayate icon! :-)

I sent out queries to some of the magazines a while back but didn't get a nibble; I may have to try again. I've been accepted as a writer on Roughstock, though -- I'll be submitting the disc and show review I WAS doing for About there this week, at least!

I feel like I have to get a trifle more knowledgeable to write for No Depression, though...
