Interview with Persephone Magazine

I was interviewed by Persephone Magazine.

“Persephone Magazine is a daily blog focused on topics of interest for modern, intelligent, clever women. We strive to give a voice to more women from a variety of backgrounds and with diverse interests. We feature articles not only from our talented staff of writers but from our incredible readership, as well; readers who give voice to their opinions and viewpoints out of a desire to educate, entertain, or engage with our community. We encourage thoughtful discussion and respectful debate. We are an environment that welcomes all perspectives that come from a place of respect and consideration for fellow community members.”

Creative funding: finding, choosing, billing, and getting paid.

 
On Thursday, July 18th 2013, I was a guest on Heritage Radio’s After the Jump program which is hosted by Design*Sponge founder Grace Bonney. On the show we talked about being paid what you’re worth, ways to fund creative projects, the role gender plays when it comes to doing work for free and overall the struggle of making a living as a content producer. I really enjoy talking about these topics with Grace because she has been running Design*Sponge for about 10 years and has seen the blogging industry go through various phases.

You can listen to the interview on iTunes or stream it on Heritage Radio. Please feel free to chime in on the conversation by leaving a comment over at Design*Sponge.

Also, I was super stoked that 99u (one of my favorite blogs) tweeted about the interview!
