Come Gather 'Round, People...

...for I have a few things I would like to discuss!  (Warning:  This post is mostly business, with a splash of that Gyllenhaal kid toward the end.)

1.  As many of you likely remember, for the past month I've been writing a blog to promote a new website that allows college students the opportunity to rate and review their dorms and campus housing.  The site launched on Monday and...along with that launch came the news that the guys behind the site had dumped their entire tech team and social media team (!), yours truly included.  So, um, that was weird.

The whys and hows of it all are still a mystery to me, but I wanted to thank everyone here who read that blog, whether it was once or twice or you were one of the few who left me comments there.  Your enthusiasm surpassed that of anyone else involved in the project.  I'm really lucky to have such supportive friends and readers and I hope you know how much I appreciate you.

(Also this means I'm now wide-open for freelancing opportunities so if you know anyone who needs a writer/blogger, I'M AVAILABLE.)

2.  Thankfully, the blogging gig is no longer my sole source of income; I'm starting a part-time job next week.  As I seem to always be saying, this shouldn't have any effect whatsoever on this site.  (Except maybe that the posts will pretty much always go up in the afternoon instead of the morning.)

3.  The forum.  Is so dead.  I remember to check it, like, once a week, and it's my own damn forum.  In the next day or so, I'm going to remove the link from the top of this page.  If you would like to still visit there, please bookmark it!  I won't delete it just yet, but I am going to try to re-centralize our community back to this blog.

4.  In about a month, is going to start selling I Was a Gay Cowboy Before It Was Cool shirts (!!).  Which is awesome.  But if you want one, you should still buy it from me (they bought a license, which is fantastic, but it's a one-time deal and I get no individual royalties from them).

5.  And LASTLY, Jake Gyllenhaal?  Is still buying overpriced beverages to-go:

Which is strangely comforting, you know?  When all else in the world is changing, we can always count on Jake to stay the same...

Jake's expression conveys the miserable emotions conjured by the How's the Living crew. He's buying coffee, but IT'S NOT FOR THEM.

Woohoo! Congratulations on the job,and on selling the royalties..sounds like an eventful time for you x

I have to say, I'm really disappointed in Jake who is cheating by using a coffee tray instead of juggling them in his hands like in the old days. *sigh* We're all getting older, I guess.

Oh my god, i can honestly (and embarassingly) say that i had totally forgotten about the forum :O What with my holiday overseas, and then the lack of internet for the past few months, and moving to the other side of the country. I feel SO bad, and i was a mod there too *smacks herself in the head*

And well congrats on the job! Thats so exciting... fill us in, whats it for?! And part time is perfect :D

I still visit the forums, but it IS pretty dead.

Melissa, COMMENT WIN. :)

S.H., you should totally buy a shirt!!!! They are awesome, and I'm not just saying that because I have one and wear it to every Jake movie that comes out. :D

Thanks for all the congratulations on the job!! I found out last night that my new boss has checked out this blog, so you are all under strict instructions to only say flattering things about me. :)

And I'm glad we're all in agreement about the forum. There just doesn't seem to be enough going on to sustain it properly right now... :-/

1. Weird campus-page-people *kickstheirasses*

2. Yayyy for the job

3. Yep, it is dead :( I did come there every now and again, but nothing just happens - I guess it's a mixture of a lot of things

I agree with coffeecat, what the heck is all this tray malarkey Gyllenhhal, this would never have happened back in the day. It wasn't acceptable then, and it's damn well not acceptable now - shape up young man, or well have to send the "boys" round.

Becky Heineke May 22, 2011 at 7:57 PM  

^^^ I third this!! He's getting sloppy and we really shouldn't accept this from him, dammit.
