…Great with deadlines and a true professional. In addition to her journalism skills she’s also a great editor, online community organizer and also understands how to extend a publication onto various social media platforms. platforms.
Gia is…a voracious, determined learner, unafraid to ask questions and dedicated to doing the best job possible; she is supremely organized and remarkably efficient; and most of all, she is a joy to work with, always possessing an excellent attitude and enthusiasm for her job. I cannot recommend her highly enough. enough.
Gia (Georgia) was a great asset to our web team. She took a lot on and was a quick study. She is technically savvy, creative and diligent. Gia likes a creative web marketing challenge and rises to the occasion.
There have been several other people in Gia’s position with us since she left – none have been as good. good.
So here’s roughly what I’ve been doing for the eight months since my last post:
- Moving to Texas
- Writing for ANN
- Working on another half-dozen of side projects
That’s pretty much it. I’m finally in a space where I’m taking on a bit more freelance work, and also just launched a new site (in beta)– just a for-fun project. I’ve been writing for a site called JobDeals that’s devoted to local service providers, and for a TV site that hasn’t launched yet (more on that later). Aaand I’ve been helping the wonderful Teri as she tweaks her site, JacksonHoleBuzz.
Most importantly, I’ve been having a lot of fun!
Yes, I mentioned a while ago that I would be taking some anime-related work in June, and have since started my part-time gig at the <a href=”http://animenewsnetwork.com”>Anime News Network</a>, the largest and longest-running anime news site on the ‘net (I think). I’m helping out on both the news and the features front, writing, editing, brainstorming, etc. Here are a few items I’ve done over there:
- Review: The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya
- Convention report: FanimeCon 2010 (includes several interviews)
- News: Bleach, 2nd Hell Girl Season Streamed
Just a handful of what’s been going on and what’s to come for me at ANN.
Well, not ME– but Fran Kearton, a relative whose book, <u>French Beds I Have Slept In (And Some I Wish I Hadn’t)</u>, I’ve been editing for some time now! The book is in the final stages before it gets printed, and we’ve launched a website for the book in preparation!
Fran has been blessedly patient with me for the duration of this project, since I’ve been editing her book while working full-time elsewhere, but now we’re finally almost done! Soon we’ll have copies that Fran will sell and who off at signings and readings.
