Hey everyone!

OK so let’s separate a few things: my partner recovered from her COVID, now I have it. It’s OK, but it’s day 2 and I’m feeling weird. Head ache, tired, coughing, achy body. My mind is moving pretty slow, but I’ll rest after this. 

Secondly though, it’s my 30th birthday on Wednesday! I’d organised a shindig, but that’s been cancelled. Alas, such is life. I’m very thankful for what I have and always will be. Shout out to those who’re struggling. As always, if you need any sort of help, reach out and we’ll do our best to help!

Finally WTF: so many jobs this week?? Is it hiring season or what? If there’s one job you should all apply for, it’s the DuckDuckGo one below. $160k?? Insane! Aim high and land on the clouds!

Calls to Pitch

I try to ensure all the positions are well-paid, and if not, they’re helpful in some other way. Our readership varies from new writers to established writers, so some jobs are better for others. Either way, if you have any questions, get in touch with me or the employer, see how you can help, and grow your network! I try to only show remote jobs, but sometimes allow odd interesting jobs to pass through.
