If I've never published a book before, what are some good first steps? After all, not all writing now is in books but also short form media, copywriting, articles, etc. I've got a blog I'm updating regularly and I like connecting with my fellow writers. I genuinely both love and hate writing...

What would you do if you loved your job but hated your work environment? Would you leave? How would you cope?

Which is better: continuing to work a job you've grown to dislike because it is advantageous for you career-wise, or finding a new job that you genuinely enjoy?

I've always believed that if you pursue a career you love, then you'll never work a day in your life, so I've followed my dreams and have always planned to pursue my passion, even if it might not result in the most high-paying job. This passion is writing. However, throughout the years, I've...

Am I going to be able to support myself, and possibly a family one day, if I pursue a career in journalism?

My mom would never tell me that I shouldn't chase after my "dream job" because of my potential salary, but she has told me that a career in journalism is one of the lowest paying professions. Should I be concerned, and quite possibly heading into another major?...

What's the most comfortable and steady position to be in when it comes to journalism while still making a difference?

By making a difference I mean having an impact by giving news to the world without constantly feeling like you're "missing a deadline" or stressing about giving news as fast as possible. #journalism...

What's a good major to pursue if you have an AA degree in Health Sciences General Studies and you enjoy subjects involving English/Writing?
