READ THE ARTICLE. YOU BETTER HAVE TO.
Fifty Cent's first album title reads Get Rich Or Die Tryin'. It's true. We stay with our jobbed lives because of that intrinsic need to provide sustenance to ourselves and to the people around us.
It is because of that need that I decided to search for other ways to make money while still employing myself at our amazingly-cool advertising company. No, I got no plans of leaving. I'm enjoying my stay at the office and got no immediate plans of leaving. Just wanna make extra dough to help pay the bills. It is not greed that makes me wanna do it but it is just that need to make more money.
It is for this reason that I wanna write more. They often say in movies and tv shows (and even parents for that matter) to always follow what you're been saying, right? That's what my heart's saying. Do some writing.
That's one of the reasons why I blog. I wanna get noticed by some writers out there with hopes of getting me hired someday. I'm just being honest! I wanna contribute for some magazine or whatnot. Its gonna be very good for my resume right? And talk about the experience I'm gonna be getting should I become a contributing for a magazine.
Since I'm planning to be one, I just thought about getting rid of my pen name, which is Curbside Puppet. I don't want future employers (or co-magazine writers) to refer to me by my petname! I want them to know me by first name. I want them to refer to me as Jerick. My real name. Writers who got blogs refer to themselves using their names, reputable bloggers in the Philippines who I met thru the IBlog5 refer to themselves using their names as well. To hell with security! I'm not divulging a lot here in the first place! No picture, no conatct number, just the name! I don't even have a celfone number posted on my Facebook page!
From now on, I'm calling myself here as Jerick (the former curbside puppet). Swallow it guys.
