101 Things You Can Get Paid to Photograph
I want to redesign our website.
That’s where you come in…
I need to buy a URL and come up with a website name that says “fun.” And I’m hoping you can help.
You see, we’ve called ourselves the Travel Division (of AWAI) for so long it’s hard for me to think of us any other way.
But the truth is, we’re not really a travel division anymore. At least, not since we started publishing programs on pet photography that don’t require travel. And soon we’ll be talking about food writing, which may or may not include travel. And we have some other, not-necessarily-travel-related ideas we’re tossing around, too.
But the one thing that all our current (and in-the-works) programs have in common is, well, “fun.”
They offer you ways to enjoy yourself, live well, learn something, foster your interests, maybe pick up a few new passions along the way — and even get paid for it, too. And, as I said… they’re just plain fun.
Some of our photo workshop attendees admit that they use our workshops as a travel club, more than anything else. Sure, they take a lot of pictures when they’re there and they learn how to sell them when they’re there, too. But they also like the idea of traveling with a group of people who share their interests. They make new friends. They have fun.
And sure… while it is certainly nice to get paid for the travel articles you write, some of our readers admit that they really like travel writing because it gives them an excuse to travel. When you travel as a travel writer, you see the world in a totally different light than when you travel as a tourist. It’s just plain fun.
So — with that in mind — will you help me come up with a name for our new website?
Something that says “fun.” Something that reflects the idea that “living richer” doesn’t necessarily mean making more money. It’s about enjoying life more. After all, people don’t lie on their deathbeds and say they wish they’d spent more time at work.
Everyone could use a little more fun in their lives. And we’d like to help put it there — whether it’s through travel or pet photography or food writing or just simply traveling the world with friends (see today’s writing prompt).
So if you can help me think of a name, I’ll gladly repay you in free reports.
And I’ll start today with our first of many to come: 101 Things You Can Get Paid to Photograph In and Around Your Hometown.
I’ll include download instructions here below.
And, to be honest, you’re welcome to read that report — even if you don’t send me your ideas. But I’d greatly appreciate it if you would…
In fact, I’ll even give you credit for naming the site by putting your picture and a special thank you on the site for the first month it’s live.
