You know how life takes you different places and you end up doing things you never imagined you would be doing?
Take, for example, my current job. I work for Avenia Bridal doing online marketing. Basically, I write and maintain their blog, I run their Facebook page (and Facebook ads), I'm learning how to oversee their website, and I help figure out other online marketing strategies. My writing (for the blog) means I interview past customers (brides) as well as our artistic director, Nancy (I ghost-write her). I also have to keep up on current wedding/bridal gown trends, ideas, and happenings, and I research other blogs/websites/forums to get information. After a month of doing this, what is the verdict?
I love it.
Weird, eh? I'm kind of a tom-boy at heart, and so finding myself writing for a boutique that sells high-end wedding gown couture is pretty funny. But I really enjoy this idea of marketing, and I really love the people I work with. I'm also impressed with the product and the integrity of the owners. It's a great job because it's less than part-time, on my own schedule, and I get to write! I also love socializing, so the networking part (which is starting to happen) is really fun. Plus they pay me to write. How cool is that?!
Anyway, even though it will look like blatant advertising, I just finished a post that I think you guys might like; it was about a girl I've known for nearly 9 years, and her mother and I have had several callings together at church. So fun! The coolest part is how she and her husband came together. Read it here!
