"Fan to Pro's" Tips for Getting Publishing Jobs Despite the Downturn

Fan to Pro is a neat blog that shows people how to apply their fannish and geeky interests to their jobs and careers. I guess I never thought of writing and editing as geeky, but maybe that's because I'm too fannish about it?

At any rate, this recent post caught my eye. It makes some good points about how to redirect your writing career dreams in a way that capitalizes on the fast-moving trends of the industry. I've been thinking of doing a post on this very subject, with a more specific spin toward the book sector. So stay tuned for that one (hint: I think graphic designers and page-layout people should be learning XML).
