I’ll keep working for you…
It’s easy to scoop my headlines and write similar stories. It’s easy to take a look at my posts and write from there. You know you’ll get the clicks / likes / comments regardless of the effort – because your company’s reach is huge.
That’s not me. I’m the only reporter showing up to these meetings lately. I can think of at least two stories I wrote this week that were picked up by the mainstreams – after I published.
The independent route isn’t easy. But this isn’t a complaint post.
This is a grrrrr, there’s more stories out there & I’m determined to keep going!!
If you’re thinking local instead of big box, community instead of corporations – you’ll love The Phoenix! If you’re not a subscriber already, your first month is free!
