I Quit My Job to Volunteer Full Time for Jim Webb

Well, kind of.

You see, I am a freelance science writer/editor, so, I pretty much work for myself. I have completed all my current projects and will not be accepting any new ones for the next 4 weeks. (Lest you say I'm not really quitting, please remember: this will cost me money.)

I intend to devote my time between now and election day to getting Jim Webb's message out both here at Tokatakiya and around the blogosphere and spend as much time as possible phone banking. The Webb campaign goal is 500,000 calls before November 7th. I'm going to make as many as I can.

To keep track of my progress I will be having a "timpani roll" and a tote board (just like on the Jerry Lewis telethon). The tote board will keep track of how many calls I've made so far:

I expect that number to increase rapidly now. My goal is 2000 calls.

I hope that my total committment to volunteering for the Webb campaign will inspire some of you who want Jim Webb to win but don't think you have the time or money to help out.

You do.

Just take a couple hours a week to volunteer or donate $5 or $10. Remember, you can now phone bank from the comfort of your own home. Every little bit gets us closer to our goal: a Senator we can be proud of.

Very proud of you. I'm self-employed too, which gives me some flexibility, but then that whole office expenses, mortgage, kid's tuition, catfood, dog treats, and gas money thing rears its ugly head and I have to get back to work.

Glad you could get the time set aside. People don't understand that when you're self employed it really is a big deal when you choose to stop trying to make money.

I did volunteer to do a bit of leafletting and phonebanking and have been sending out a lot of letters to the editor, posting to enemy websites, etc. It's fun, but wish I could go full time.
