3. Respond to email!
4. Writing assignments…both assigned and those based on your own interests.
5. Other stuff that comes up.

Workload will be about 6-10 hours a week and there is absolutely no pay, but the glory, oh the glory…

Special Topics in Calamity Business - Free Marketing Tips!

I debuted a new feature today on the Indie Fixx Guest Blog called Special Topics in Calamity Business.

Periodically, I will be asking successful indie entrepreneurs to share some tips & tricks with readers on how to run an indie business. When starting any new endeavor it’s important to remember to not reinvent the wheel, but find mentors and other informational sources to help you with those things that others have already figured out. To that end, Jennifer Perkins of Naughty Secretary Club shares some advice on free marketing opportunities.

If you run an indie biz and would like to share some tips for Special Topics in Calamity Business just shoot me an email.

Looking for a guest blogging gig?

I’m planning on starting a Guest Blogger feature on Indie Fixx.

So, if you are interested in doing some Guest Blogging and want some more info, send me an email with the subject of guest blogging.

I have a few specific topics in mind, but I am also open to your suggestions and areas of interest. Ideally, I’m looking for both peeps who just want to do an occasional post and for peeps who are interested in doing a reoccurring column. When you contact me, please send me a link to your blog and/or some other writing.

Do you give time and/or money to charity?

Are you a crafter who cares? A DIYer who donates? I'm looking for indie businesses, artists, designers and other creative people who donate time, money and/or goods to charity for a story on Indie Fixx.

If you are interested in sharing how you share, email me . I'm not interested in any particular area or type of charitable giving, so whether you give money and/or time to people, pets, the environment, historic preservation, the arts, public tv/radio, it's all good. If you have organized a charitable giving project, I most definitely want to hear from you.

The focus of this story is going to be what a generous, sharing, and conscientious lot indie, diy, creative people are and to encourage others to get involved donating either time, money or both.
