New Name, New Mission, New Biz

OK, for those of you who haven't heard, I am no longer a full-time newspaper reporter. I have, like so many others in my field, been downsized. Being the "glass half full" type, I figure this is the time to get my rear in gear and go full-time as a freelancer.

As part of that, I'm going to commit to a daily blog. This will serve a few purposes. On one hand it will keep my momentum going... I'll have to write something every day, on the other, it will give prospective clients the chance to see what I do when I'm writing casually... whether that's useful or not, I don't know, but there it is.

My daily posts may not be long or involved, but I will commit to putting them up every weekday. Maybe it'll be a book review, maybe it'll be a bit about something in the news, but it'll be something.

Of course, the re-name reflects my post-a-day intentions. I'm counting on all you to call me on it if I skip out.

This totally needs a "like this" button.

I haven't figured out how to get it on the individual posts yet, but there is now a "share this" button on the right side of the page.
