Blog status: secure

May 29th, 2010

Just a quick and happy note to tell you I have been retained by the Star-Advertiser as a blogger! To think, I was sitting in limbo all week (we were told that this week we'd hear about our status) waiting for that call or e mail, and I happened to check my SPAM folder today and saw the e mail had arrived Thursday. Oops.

So, that's nice. I'll be here if you still want to hang out.
