Happy New Year. We hope you had a nice break from work and were able to relax and recharge your batteries. We’re glad to be back ourselves. We have some new additions to the site this year we think you’re going to love. Coming soon will be a section devoted to politics in underemployment, video interviews, and the occasional vlogs from some of our regular contributors.
A quick word on our new political section. Government policies play a large part in shaping the economy. In response to this fact, the staff decided to include pieces with a political bent as part of our regular content. We don’t define ourselves as a political site or affiliate ourselves with any political party. The articles will not all lean one way or another politically. What they will be is thoughtful, passionate, and well written. We hope the political section will result in engaged and spirited commentary from our readers.
You may have also noticed our awesome new logo. We debuted it a couple weeks ago without any fanfare, but we want to point out we hired a talented underemployed designer to create it, and she did a fantastic job. We love it, and we hope you do too. If you want to hire her, do it throught this email, firstname.lastname@example.org
A couple of last notes. The Underemployed Life is completely self funded. We pay all of our writers, promote their offsite work, and make sure people know who they are through paid advertising. Because we take in no revenue currently, and we didn’t want to put ads on the site, we decided to launch a merchandise store.
At our store you can get all manners of products with our logo on it. T-shirts, coffee mugs, mouse pads, and a lot of other great things. Any proceeds we get from the merchandise you buy goes directly to the running of the site. We can’t thank you enough for your support. Our quick growth is directly attributable to you, and we sincerely appreciate it.
In 2017 and beyond, The Underemployed Life is committed to bringing stories, interviews, and articles that give you reasons to keep coming back. We’re proud of the work we’ve done, and even more excited for what’s to come. With you in tow, we hope to build a community that expects more from their country than just “a job.”
And in case you thought we forgot, here’s our clip of the week. Enjoy.
