    Happy Thursday!

    Here is a random piece of content for you, because I genuinely wanted to share this with y'all. I was featured on the new podcast Offbeat Grad by Samantha Tetrault.

     I Was Featured On The Offbeat Grad Podcast! | I was recently featured on Sam of Samanthability's new podcast Offbeat Grad. I wanted to share the interview that I did with her, with you! So click through to check it out! #Podcast #FreelanceWriting #Blogging

    Samantha is a fantastic blogger and SEO/B2B freelance writer that I “met” online over the past few years. We are in the same blogger network (InfluenceHer Collective) that I belong to for this blog, The Happy Arkansan. She has a seriously great website (Samanthability) that offers all sorts of excellent advice to young adult women.

    She reached out to me a few weeks back when I was dealing with a few behind the scenes things (storms and storms and not having a steady internet connection.) As soon as I figured everything out, I hit Samantha up, and we scheduled an interview time.

    In this podcast we chatted about:

    • How I got started as a blogger and freelancer.
    • Using Upwork and actually gaining some success from it.
    • The reason that lawyers need freelancers to create blog posts.
    • Why you should be a likable human being in the workforce.

    and so much more! I may also say “for sure” a lot in this episode as a nervous tick/filler. I don't even say “for sure” a lot in real life.

    I am embbeding the Stitcher link, but you can also find the Offbeat Grad podcast (and this episode) on Apple Podcasts and Google Play Music!

    You should seriously look into following Samantha's Offbeat Grad Podcast; I have been adoring listening to all the episodes thus far.

    I know that this was a bit of a niche topic for a “post,” but I wanted to share this excellent interview with y'all. Samantha is doing amazing things and making blogging and freelancing more accessible career paths. More than anything, she is normalizing the art of going off the beaten path after college. You DON'T have to get a 9-5 job and have your soul eaten away piece by piece. You also DON'T have to go to graduate school just because you are unsure of what to do next.

    I hope that this podcast episode inspires you all and that you check out what Samantha is doing to help the blogging and freelancing world.

    Thanks again to Samantha for reaching out, and giving me a good out for content this week lol!

    Lastly, not so pro-tip: do it anyway. I have been doing so many things lately even though they are scary and out of my comfort zone. This interview was one of those things. Combat your comfort zone, and make something awesome in the process. On the other hand, you don't have to be a hero all the time! It's okay to take it slow and be in your comfort zone sometimes.
