One of my former students, Maddy Osman, recently reached out to me about a new project she started for people living in (or visiting) Chicago.
The project is a lifestyle blog called Chicago Cheap Ass. Despite the slightly abrasive name, the blog aims to show those living on a budget how to enjoy the city of Chicago. Maddy covers topics as diverse as food, transportation, entertainment and dating, and it has a companion Facebook page with current deals.
For those looking to start a blog, Maddy is happy to be a mentor. She has experience in the marketing and technical fields necessary to be successful. Feel free to reach out at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you’re local to Chicago and need a creative outlet, she’s always looking to feature interested writers as well!
