Updates Galore!

Good afternoon all (morning for some of you)!

I'm still alive, no worries. This was a big weekend for me. I moved from New Jersey to Orlando, Florida and I am now working full time as a PhotoPass Photographer in Disney's Hollywood Studios. Yes sir, I work for him. The boss. The Mouse!

It's part of the Disney College Program, and since I applied in the semester before I graduated, I was accepted. I'll be here until January and hopefully later to extend my program. I need to be a good little worker, so I can eventually get an internship with the Imagineers.

Anyway, here's the updates around the blog:

The Awkward Writing series is still ongoing. I haven't posted in a while about it. The 4th installment will be posted tomorrow, the 21st. We currently have 17 participants in the giveaway contest, ranging from 1-4 points each. So don't forget to comment and do all the extra hullabaloo to rack up those points. Points=entries!

I've finally caught up with all the comments made on last weekend's Weather blogfest. Thanks for all who commented and assisted in the tiny edits here and there.

A new blogger, J.C. Martin (the fighter writer), is hosting a blogfest on Tuesday, August 31st. The theme is to post a fighting entry (under 1000 words for courtesy). Do sign up! She's new to the blogger universe and deserves to be noticed. She has some talent. Visit her blog HERE and rack up some points to win a $10 Amazon voucher.

Lastly, be on the lookout for the start of my Industry Leaders Interview Series, to begin mid-September. I'm still on the hunt for those wishing to offer me interviews. If you know anyone in the industry who might be willing, please share!


  1. Thanks for signing up to my blogfest Justin! You're good for 7 entries! Woo-hoo! :)

  2. ooooh...interesting career goal. Have you worked for Disney before? I have many friends that work in the Anaheim camp and they all love love love it. Good luck!

  3. No, this is the first time coming here as an employee. But it really is the best job in the world. It may be hotter than hell working in the parks for hours, but when you have fun doing it, it doesn't feel like work.

  4. I still need to come meet you and your writer friends sometime. But the farthest the bus takes us is the walmart, publix and walgreens. And the Orlando Mall.

I believe this as a philosophy, from a man who saw war and setback, and conquered all to bring us the greatest fantasy series that has ever been published. Leave your little comment and I'll get back to you.
