Humorist

I am a comedian with no formal writing training. I do stand up, and I keep a blog. I started journaling five years ago, and am looking to branch out and do some essays. Unfortunately, I know little about the writing world.
I've been told I write well, enjoy writing, and would love the opportunity to learn more about writing opportunities. How do I start? How do I travel and write? That is what I would love to do. Help.

Housesitter/Petsitter

Category: Home / Domestic
Description
I started housesitting a few years ago in the Washington, DC area. Word of mouth is how I started, and then it spread. I was living at home, so the privacy was nice.
Right now, I am saving money and am looking for housesitting assignments in the next few months. The house I stay in will be rented by the spring, so I'm starting my search now. I have money for rent, but housesitting is more fun.
I am great with pets, plants, furniture, and neighbors. I don't bring strangers in. I don't leave doors unlocked. I don't need payment. The place is enough. Okay, thanks.
