I’ve lucked into an unusual opportunity: a semi-pro blog with the on-line publication New West. I’m really excited about this venue, as it gives me some of the cachet (and credential) of a column while I still retain control over what I cover and write about. This combination will give me the needed push to do some more journalistic writing (i.e., I won’t be as shy to ask people for access and quotes).
That’s where I’ll be doing most of my posting from here on out. (Margin Notes may turn into more of a “what we’re doing these days” space, if I have time.) I hope you’ll follow me there, even though my subject matter will of necessity change a little (although my editor tells me that the memoir pieces are “always appropriate”).
My feature at New West is called Missoula Notebook. Hope to see you there.
