Hey y’all, I’ve been a bit distracted for the last couple of weeks. I’m applying for the Bellingcat Tech Fellowship ( https://www.bellingcat.com/become-a-bellingcat-tech-fellow/) and I’ve been focused on fleshing out my proposal, a tool I’ve been building for the last six months called Pam’s Pin.
Unfortunately when you’re a one-woman show distractions tend to break everything else down. I’ve got a bunch of different news (RB, Covid, Ukraine, etc) backed up, but I might have to just let them go until I get the proposal finished.
The proposal is due May 10, so by then I’ll either have overcome my impostor syndrome and gotten the application done or not. Posting should settle back in after that. Apologies and thanks for your patience. And as always, much love.
I’m happy to be patient! Wishing you the best of luck getting the fellowship!
Thank you! I just want to finish the application and put it out of my mind!
Good luck with your application!
Thank you! Cross your fingers for me. 🙂
Happy to wait. You need to tend to your own self first.
Thank you! Honestly though, doing RB *is* self-care.
Wonderful! I just finished reading We Are Bellingcat and I’m a big fan of yours as well. Don’t feel like an imposter. It sounds like an excellent match to me.
Thank you! Like you, I am a Bellingcat fan. It’d be amazing to work with them.
Do what you need to do! Take the time to make your best application and we’ll be here. Best of luck!
Thank you! I need to finish writing and quit noodling with it.
I’m happy to hear you have this opportunity and I know you’ll get it. You do such great work keeping us informed!
Thanks Jill! I feel like I’m trying to keep up with several different fronts, each of which is too important to ignore. It’s Current Events Whac-A-Mole lol
You need to do whats best for you. If some don’t understand, well, too bad for them
Thank you Tom. Honestly, this is the kind of no-frills motivation I need.
You’re PERFECT for this fellowship!! Best of luck with it. We’re all rooting for you!
Aw, thank you, Diane. I enjoy our correspondence!
Hope you get it. You certainly deserve it.
Stay safe, and good luck!
Thank you so much, Pam. I remember your support from years ago and I’m so grateful. You’re one of the people who made this possible, and if you want to take some credit you go right ahead!
Oooooh… good for you! (And — not incidentally — good for all of us who believe in you.) Will be waiting, with breath bated, for more news about the project!
Thank you! I owe you an update and it’s on my list. Apologies!
Sending good thoughts your way!
Good luck and best wishes with your application!
