PLFM Says Goodbye

Once again, I’d like to thank you guys so much for following WWHM blogs.

Since the economy tanked just over a year ago, I’ve gone from self-employed technical writer / copywriter to once again finding myself slumming around in my skeevy, seedy and thankless back-up career. I’m currently working three jobs just to make ends meet, which brings up the primary reason why I’m finally shutting down PLFM: Time.

I just don’t have any anymore.

As you guys have noticed, I don’t post much anymore to either blog. WWHM will continue, but more likely in the same capacity I’ve been following for the last few months. I’m working on my next two WWHM entries right now, and hope to post them in the next few weeks. I work diligently to make each post better than the last, so if you stick with me, I promise to make it worth your while. I’m working hard to improve my writing.

As for PLFM, we felt it was time to let it go. I never felt comfortable, nor very skilled, at combining my lame sense of humor with my piss-poor excuse for investigative reporting. My time is so limited, I need to focus instead on getting my ass employed again as a writer. I have to. Before I fucking strangle myself.

For those of you seeking a good source of material similar to mine, I recently struck up a friendship with Jami Howard, a great writer who runs a site called Date Wrecks. She posts awful personal ads and dating stories, and not only does she do a great job, but she posts several times a week. You can find her here:

She really fucking calls them out, too. I’m proud of her.

I hope you guys stick with WWHM. I may not post often, but if you subscribe in one of the three million ways you can now subscribe to blogs, you won’t miss a post. I'm NOT going to stop writing.

Once again, I’d like to thank you guys so much for reading and I really hope you enjoyed our content from the past year.

(Note: If you currently work for an ad agency / web development firm / any other organization with open opportunities for writers/ copywriters, please feel free to email me. I’m looking for a FT gig paying a barely livable wage in Seattle, Phoenix, Los Angeles, Las Vegas or any other city somewhat close to a large body of water.)
