So I recently signed up to be a Vice President of the local American Marketing Association. I say ‘a Vice President’ because there are like 10 of us. I volunteered for the Communications position, thinking it would give me a chance to hone my copy writing skills and diversify my web minded self.
I had lunch with a few of the other VPs today, and met the VP of Web Content. I’m thinking that I will provide her with the content, and she’ll post all of that content (a well deserved break for a girl that posts content ALL DAY LONG). I asked her if she knew HTML, which is the basic language you need to know in order to work on the web.
“Oh, no, I just outsource all of that.”
Well, considering we don’t have a budget, we won’t be outsourcing, and it was decided that me, the VP of Communications, would really man the website, and she would just provide me with the content. So it’s a bit bass ackwards, but I guess it will work.
I’ve lately volunteered for a bit too much. I’m helping my water color instructor with her site, I have a freelance project on the side, and was volunteered by one of my organization’s execs to create a website for the new Reno Ice Dome.
I guess it’s all a good thing, considering I’ll have a bit more spare time on my hands. To make things more interesting, I start training to become an instructor for the University of Phoenix, where I’m hoping to teach MBA classes. At least that bit of extra work will pay, which will help me with the *gulp* significant increase in rent I’ll start paying next month.
