Writing for the Prairie

March 13, 2012

Sometime during the first few days of 2012, I sat down to reflect on 2011 and write a few goals for the new year. (The list might have included items like Have a baby. Survive having a baby. and Keep breathing.)

I put my finger on a big love of my life last year – the fact that I really, really love to write – so one of my goals was challenging myself to do something a bit more formally with my writing. Namely, could I get someone to pay me to do it?

My first thought was Silicon Prairie News.

I love the site and their mission, I’m a big fan of the guys who founded it, and I have attended (and raved about) many of their events over the past couple years.

Next thing I knew, I was the newest SPN contributor for the Kansas City area. Wohoo!

SPN’s goal is to highlight and support the growing entrepreneurial community in the Midwest, and I’m honored to be a small part of that mission. I’m having a blast interviewing a few folks that are doing cool things in the Kansas City area, attending events, and sharing their stories. And also, press badges! So fun.

Annie Sorensen’s Contributions on SPNews

I’m excited and honored to be a part of the SPN organization, and to be earning a few bucks for my writing. How cool.

Stop by and say hello sometime soon. I’d love your thoughts.

Better yet, stop by and share a story or two of someone in the Midwest who’s breaking the mold and doing inspiring things. They deserve it.

Thanks, as always, my seventeen lovely readers, for being there and supporting me in all of my wild ideas and adventures. Couldn’t do it without ya!
