This year, I made a “professional” goal to get published more in magazines. *clearing throat* Okay, more like to get published AT ALL. I have been published in the past but it was never through any large amount of effort on my part. Most of my publications came through being invited or being asked to contribute to an article or literally dropping off a box of projects and waiting a year or two or three for them to either get published or sent back.

Lame, huh?

Well, this year I decided to make an effort to actually get published. Its not like I am some big wig super designer who is getting all these invites to contribute projects to articles. Reality is that I get published about once a year right now *OUCH*.

I was pretty succesful with reaching my goal of starting a YouTube channel and making videos in 2012. I mean, making videos is really fun for me now! But 2013 started off weird and I just could not get motivated so I started a Pub Call Support Group on Facebook. Anyone can join — all you have to do is want to get published. Just click THIS LINK to ask to join — I approve new members pretty quickly :)

Commit to Submit Saturday

Well, I kinda didn't follow through on submitting my own work though I am pretty good at cheerleading for other people! LOL

While I was watching everyone else get “happy emails” requesting their work for publication, I was just sitting here making stuff and not submitting. So this month, I decided to start. Here is a list of all the pub calls I have submitted to so far. Fingers crossed one of them sticks!
