Keeping Up With Tai Gooden

Hellooooo My People!

I have had so much going on lately. First, I had to say a tearful yet joyful goodbye to Necole Bitchie. I was a contributing writer on her popular celebrity blog and she made the tough decision to move on from her blog. I miss writing for her and emailing back and forth with her every day, but I am ecstatic about her decision to pursue happiness. Through her struggle to leave NB behind, I received yet another confirmation that I am doing the right thing by leaving a predictable life behind and diving into freelance writing.

I have also been busy picking up extra work with HelloGiggles, The Mary Sue, and others. It’s been a whirlwind, but I am so grateful for it. I also had the honor of being mentioned on a podcast not once but TWICE. Verity Podcast is an all women-run show that focuses on all things Doctor Who, and they mentioned my article on The Guardian about how to combine talent and fandom love to make a little cash. If you remember…that was the article that caused a bit of backlash toward me so it was good to hear someone say they liked it LOL! They also mentioned my fledgling blog Bad Wolf Blerd. It was definitely an exciting moment, so listen to the podcast!

Next up is a trip to San Diego for business outside of freelance writing, a possible press appearance in Maryland at Intervention Con in August, and then a panel appearance in November. I’ll tell you more about the November event as it approaches 🙂

Have a great weekend!

-Tai Gooden
