Back in 2008, I had an article published in The Root, an African-American oriented web publication that is the brainchild of Henry Louis Gates Jr., and published by The Washington Post company.

I spent all of 2009 trying to get back into The Root, but in 2010, I finally broke through and now they've published my third submission (http://www.theroot.com/views/your-mother-prostitute) in as many months. Next April I'll have to declare my income from freelancing (which after years of not having to qualifies as a good problem).

I'm now encouaged enough to pursue some other publications and sites I previously lacked the confidence to even try querying.

Jack Palance was right. Confidence is sexy. :D

CGs, and go go go for those other publications! Query 'em until they're dizzy -- can't hit the top of the heap until you aim for it. :D

Congratulations! Throw a party! Or better have someone throw one for you.

Congratulations!

Throw a party! Or better have someone throw one for you.I wonder, could you throw one and then deduct it as a business expense? ;)

Ha! What a way to look at it, but you know, I think I'd feel the same way. Congratulations!
