I'm excited about all the writing opportunities we can and do create for ourselves. These passion projects often don't make a dime for months. It doesn't matter. We keep at it because we believe in the idea. We embrace our vision, meld it with our drive and carry the whole shebang out with our storytelling. Sometimes even opening our platforms to other writers' voices.
So, I am sharing my two newest writing endeavors. They are both still in development stages, but, in the spirit of this blog and to gain some accountability, I feel I should spill the goods.

The only thing I have left to do is find a way to entice writers. Maybe link-love or in-text ads. I dunno. What do you think? Hey, better question: Do you want to contribute? Get at me!

I'm working on finding the perfect free platform for now (maximum design control and linkable slide shows don't seem to coexist on most platforms), to keep costs down until revenue starts flowing. Spread the word through social media and have a system in place for citizen contributions. This is the hard project. Business permits, tax forms, employees and all that jazz.
Enough about me, what are your passion projects? What stage are you at? What keeps you going?
Psst...serious about the political blogging. Just let me know.
