Well, I did it! I’m finally a published author! Sort of…
A few months ago, I was asked by Thrillist to assist with a piece ranking New Orleans-area strip clubs. If you’re unfamiliar, Thrillist is a lifestyle/leisure publication similar to Maxim, Esquire, etc. Their content is excellent and they don’t put out the same biased, editorial garbage as magazines/newspapers like Where Y’at, NOLA.com, etc.
Anyway, you can read my article about New Orleans strip clubs right now! Click the link, share with your friends, and let the online world know you want more strip club info! Now, back to my rant against New Orleans media…
I realize I sound biased since I’ve never been asked by any other publication to write something. So, I’ll counter by telling you that New Orleans Magazine and Gambit both put out great stuff. And there’s no chance in Hell I’ll ever be asked to write for them. So there!
The stories run in Where Y’at are basically dictated by advertisers, and NOLA.com is just a journalistic trainwreck. OK, back to the point – Thrillist has some insanely good articles about New Orleans, especially for an online publication based in New York. You should check them out.
My hope is that I did right by the editors. I know I tried my best. While I would’ve put something different on this blog, this is – by far – the most professional piece
I’ve ever written I’ll ever write. My first draft to them basically trashed every club except for Penthouse (and I even ripped on them, too). Not quite what they had in mind to promote the New Orleans strip club scene. They probably think I’m idiot by now, but hopefully they’re happy with the finished product.
Also, I’ll post some of the awards that didn’t make the cut! I promise – they’ll be entertaining!
