FIRST OF ALL: If you think I've stopped blogging, you're bananas. I'm just over here at Tumblr: molls.tumblr.com
I moved there because Vox won't let me host ads. I could make up some excuse about the interface being better, but it's really not that great in my opinion. I liked Vox a lot but I simply cannot afford to work on something all day that can't pay me.
If you haven't been following my blog over at the new spot, let me catch you up on my life right now. The Molls Show is kicking butt and we just released Episode 2 today and soon you'll be able to find it on Hulu and many other sites that syndicate the top content on the web. I have been going on some auditions, pitch meetings and other creative/general meetings although nothing has fully paid off yet. During the day I've just been trying to keep the blog fresh and poppin' per usual while applying for jobs on Craig's List, knitting scarves to sell on Etsy and vlogging. And ya know, just keeping it real as always. I feel like in some sense I've become the prime example of how this recession is affecting people in my field left and right. I am smart, capable, experienced and ready to work... yet there are no jobs for me. I'm trying the best I can right now to pay the bills in a creative way so that I don't have to abandon blogging and my readers. Part of me knows that if I wasn't so consistent with my blogging I would lose some of the presence that I have worked hard to build and that's a big fear for me. I'm not Britney Spears. I can't take off and live a "normal life" for two years and then release an album and be back on top. I gotta keep my slow climb going, ya know?
On that note, I am now offering a new service. I am selling custom made videos to my readers and followers who might like that sort of thing. Here is what I have printed in my Etsy ad:
OK, so some of you guys probs know me from my super awesome internet videos. If you don't, you're crazy! Get with the now! I'm all over the place! I actually don't even think that highly of myself, it's just a freakin' fact.
So check this: If you buy one of these vids, I will personalize a video with either the topic of your choice or anything I feel like doing that I'm pretty sure you'd enjoy. Then I'll set it up for you on Vimeo with a password protection (or for open viewing if you choose) and then you can do whatever the hell you want with it.
Here are some occasions you might like to order a video for:
-A loved one's birthday
-Your own birthday
-Masturbation (hey, man- whatever!)
-Getting a promotion at work
-Having a particularly shitty day
-Finding out your tumor has shrunk
I will also break up with your signif oths for you, tell your mom your gay, lie to your professor and say that you interned for me or tell you that you're special and that you mean something to me in a convincing enough manner that it will boost your self-esteem. Whatever you want. I'll do it... EXCEPT:
-Nothing pornographic or that makes me uncomfortable on that level.
-Learn a dance routine. C'mon. That's worth more than 50 smackers.
Videos will run about 2 minutes in length and no more than 5 minutes (the standard for web videos. Trust me. Go to Funny or Die or YouTube. Most successful videos don't run over that length.) If you would like me to say, read you a chapter book, you will have to purchase multiple videos. I will not purchase any costumes and/or props, but I do have a huge collection of "hilarious things" that I will likely incorporate in to the video.
That's pretty much it. If you have questions you can email me at mollymcaleer [!at] gmail.com
I love you.
So far I've filmed a couple of motivation speeches/cheer up videos, I'm working on a parody that should go up later tonight or tomorrow and this music video which I filmed all day yesterday and had a total blast doing:
And keep in mind, I will make you a video for ANYTHING! You're a DJ who wants a good viral video to pimp your track? Give me 24 hours and an idea of what you want and I'll make you a video. Gotta special someone and you want a unique way to surprise them? Have the internet's most shameless lady give her props. Running for Mayor of your small town? How about a big-time internet endorsement from your girl Molls? Want to get back on Weight Watchers but you can't get over that initial hump? I'll give you all the moral support and/or tough love you need. Basically, you want it, you got it. *And don't forget, homies. My blog got 51k hits in January and it climbs every month. You're not just paying for a video, I also can provide you with an outlet for your video to be SEEN!*
Also, if you don't care for a video but you want to help out your main bitch and her puppy, you can now make a donation to Wagandstuff's College Fund.
I love you. Deeply.
