I’m happy to announce that I now identify as a gainfully employed freelance copy writer. From now on my pronouns are Peggy and Olson.
This decision was a difficult one. But I have to be true to myself. I hope my stunning and brave stand will encourage every other Peggy Olson out there to step up and speak out.
But seriously, folks. I can’t tell you how relieved I am not to be lying awake at night worrying that I won’t be able to pay my bills. That’s not a particularly fun feeling; and it’s one I’ve had every night since 2012.
I’ve been so poor I had to learn how to mend my own clothes. And let’s just say I’m not particularly good with a needle and thread. Last year I tried to mend a torn seam in a pair of shorts. The sloppy sewing job didn’t survive the day. So I resorted to Gorilla tape.
What can I say? I identify as Peggy Olson, not Susie Homemaker.
The downside of course is now that I’m Peggy Olson, I haven’t been posting much here at PatriotRetort.com. The upside is at least my sparse posting isn’t caused by Lupus-related problems.
Getting the perfect work-from-home gig is a Godsend, let me tell you. And I am ever so grateful for it.
Since January, with social media throttling down on political content, PatriotRetort.com has taken a hit in the shorts. As a result, the per-click rate from ad revenue dropped significantly. So this job came at just the right time.
It’s only been a couple of weeks, but as I get into the groove of being Peggy Olson I’m sure I’ll get better at managing my time. And once that happens, I hope to spend more time writing here than I currently am.
But until I get there, please bear with me. It isn’t that I hate you; it’s just that I’m a workin’ gal.
