A Bit of a Change in Answering Reader Questions...

As you can see, Modeling 101 has become quite filled with posts in the "Answering a Reader Question" series. While I will still continue that series, I have recently realized that I want to do things a bit differently. Oftentimes when I get a question from a reader, it has to do with their own situation. In this instance, it makes sense to post it as a part of the "Answering a Reader Question" series. However, some questions readers ask are in regards to certain topics that I think would be great to write about as regular blog posts.

So that being said, when I come across such reader questions, I will change up my method of response. For example, my current reply to questions from readers is:

Hi, [name of reader or simply "Anonymous" if they don't leave their name]! You'll find the answer to your question in its own post, titled "Answering a Reader Question #..." Thanks for reading!

Well, if the question is one that I think would make for a good blog post, my response will now be:

Hi, [name of reader or simply "Anonymous" if they don't leave their name]! Instead of finding the answers to your question in the "Answering a Reader Question Series", you'll find it as a regular blog post, titled [Name of Blog Post]. Thanks for reading!

Even though the content will be in traditional blog post form, I will still mention the reader's name (or list them as "Anonymous") in the beginning of the post, as well as restate their question (if needed) so that it helps to put the subject/topic in context.

In addition to having a new way to add more posts to my blog and break up the Reader Question series, I think this new approach will also be more informative to my readers in general. While the regular Reader Question series does offer great information about the modeling industry, having traditional blog posts are easier for people to find while browsing through my blog. Can you imagine trying to go through 250+ Reader Question series posts to try and find more information about something? It would take forever!

So that's my latest blog format update, which you'll see implemented in the very next post! :-)

I've recently been offered a contract from Silver Models and I'm not sure how to tell if the contract is a good one, not to mention the agency. They said I should have my lawyer take a look at it...what kind of lawyer would be familar with a modeling contract? Are there lawyers that specialize in this? I'm a man and I'm new to the fitness & modeling industries...so I feel a bit lost. I've searched the internet for info about the agency but I haven't found much and considering I'm not living in NYC and new to the industry...I don't know who to get advice from. Any words of wisdom?
