Week 6, day 1
I was told that today, Ty and I are the only ones in the WHOLE company who are at work. Everywhere in Canada except Quebec is celebrating Family Day, which is a statutory holiday (that I didn't even know about!), and so we're the only ones here. Not that it makes much of a difference in my work dynamic, since I only really work with Ty and everything is remote, so it's just a day like any other.
"Instagram" and "Instagrammer" as keywords have been trending apparently, so I've been put on a piece spotlighting local Instagram influencers and accounts to follow. I was supposed to aim for 21 accounts, which I thought would be pretty easy considering how much time I spend on Instagram looking for photo round-ups to do, but it was actually quite challenging. Finding accounts is one thing; having something cool and enticing to write about them is another.
My other article that was published is one that I did during my first (or second?) week here. It was originally supposed to be a piece about sledding in Montreal that I had written because a brand, Summit Vodka, was looking to sponsor an article about ice skating or cross-country skiing—both of which I have already written about. That's why I had written the piece about sledding, but I imagine they weren't so satisfied with it and it was replaced by my other piece.
