So I'm thinking that another way to get my voice out in the world is to offer to do some radio spots locally. Not sure how many stations there are in my immediate area (there used to be several), but I'm going to give it a shot and find out. If they like what they hear, the price goes up, naturally. This is similar to what drug dealers and Hickory Farms do; give out free samples to get you addicted, then reel you in to buy the good stuff at full price.
With 2011 looming and looking like 2010's uglier sister with less personality, the need for some income is becoming keen. Hopefully someone stumbles across this blog, reads it, and can at least point me in the right direction.
