I'm looking for original self-marketing ideas for a writer and/or a designer. Okay, social media is important: Design your own page, update it frequently and get your friends to like it and promote it to their friends. But I'm looking for those kinds of tips that you've read and thought to yourself "Well that's original!". Something on par with Nine Inch Nails'/H2DA/Radiohead's decision to give their music for free "lest they come to the unique live concert experience" marketing ploy. Have you ever come across a Seth Godin or a Malcolm Gladwell book (or anything else) and was struck by something interesting?

Where am I going in this career? What do I do or say to move forward? Why can't I just be happy that I have decent job in my field (when so many others are without work)? [more inside]

I'm compiling a list of architecture sites/blogs/magazines to promote the architecture firm I'm working for. The firm does idiosyncratic, residential work that is a modern take on generic residential vernacular (their houses look a bit like Atelier Bow-Wow's residential design). What publications and blogs should I get in touch with? [more inside]

I'm producing a short Flash piece and am looking for inspiration. Could you point me to examples of good < 1 minute, basic promotions that artfully weave text motion with good music and photography/video? Not looking to get interactive here, just a simple but intriguing, inspiring motion piece.

I have a freelance graphic design and web development business that I'm working hard to make a living off of. I've been fairly successful thus far but I'm not quite there yet. Where can I advertise my business on a modest budget, either online or in print? Other ideas for promoting my work are quite welcome as well. [more inside]
