#349: Get to the point where I can hire an intern.

Date: 12-15-2014

Due Date: 12-15-2015

The Resolution: Being a huge Howard Stern fan I've always dreamed of the day that I could hire an intern, paid or unpaid I like the title. As this site keeps growing and growing (content wise not popularity wise) I'm finding I need help in maintaining the behind the scenes minutia of blogging.

Right now I can see two areas that would both benefit an intern as well as TheWickerBreaker.com.

One is the general maintenance of the site both visually and adding things like tags, categories, RSS feeds, and all the other thing that I've heard of but have no idea how to implement to make the site show up in more search engines.

The second would be an editor/layout person. I tend to write in a very steam of conscious style which often leads to funky sentences and typos. I try to do my best at proofreading but with all the deadlines I give myself in a day I don't have time to make things perfect.

Being that I don't make a dime off this site and plan to continue these challenges as a blog for the rest of my life, I hope these positions will eventually evolve into paying gigs. 

At least that's how it plays out in my head.

Does anyone know if I would even qualify to hire interns?

I started out with a goal of becoming a paid screenwriter. I had no interest in any other aspect of filmmaking. I received and scholarship to The Vancouver Film School's Writing for Film and Television program where I graduated in 2005. I fell in love with being on set during my first non-school produced short, . I loved being around all the creative people, seeing people having fun while working. The whole liking your job was a new world to me, so I decided to give it a shot. I volunteered for any project I could, doing what ever was needed. The set was my Film School this time. While working as a PA on a feature I was informed that the DP wanted the three tallest PAs to help out in the grip and electric department. That is when I found the department that felt like the best fit for me while I continued to write.
