I've loved to write since I was young, but four years of college essays sometimes make you forget important things like that. Posting to this blog, regardless of whether anyone actually reads it, has let me stretch my dormant writing muscles and it has felt so good. Like a great pilates class good. For my fingers and my brain.
And now, because of it, there's been a fairly exciting recent development.
If you live in Calaveras County, you may have noticed that my name's been cropping up a bit in the Calaveras Enterprise. I'll be writing a column for the newspaper describing my adventures in Ireland at least through the end of April. I'll be in the Tuesday edition every week til then, so don't forget to pick up your copy!
A big Thank You to everyone at the Enterprise, especially Buzz, for welcoming me onto the team. And thanks to the readers of this blog, whether you exist or not, for being the intimidating and critical audience I needed you to be.
P.S. If you missed my last couple of articles, you can read them here.
