I just got paid for my first professionally written article! It's not much, and it's on a topic that while I do have a background in (security), it's not my forte. I'd much rather be professionally writing about toys, comics or trading cards. But it's a start.
I have to thank my wife for sending me the link to the request for submissions. I'm extremely excited and I feel like this is just the beginning. I've wanted to be a writer for as long as I can remember, and even though I don't spend nearly the amount of time writing that I should, it's something that I really do love doing.
I might go celebrate and get some more cards, then I can blog about those, but in the meantime I need to write my second article, "How to Secure your Windows".
