I received some
good great news earlier this week. The Dominion newspaper in Wellington, New Zealand confirmed they’re planning to publish a travel article I submitted for their consideration a few weeks ago.
One of the personal goals I set myself at the start of the year was to get an article published – and be paid for it.
So far I’ve had several pieces published in a variety of hard copy and on-line publications, but this will be my first paying gig.
It’s not so much the (small) sum of money that’s important to me – but that professional editors think my work is interesting and well-written enough to pay money for.
So this week I’m officially one happy man.
I’ll post a copy of the article once it’s published, hopefully in the next week or so.
