Today, in stands RIGHT NOW, is a newspaper, with an article WRITTEN BY ME. It is the first of what will be a standing column of opinion pieces. I am told by the editor that my poetry “will also go over well with readers.”
I hope to use the platform to develop a few new skills, get some print experience, and of course — it’s great exposure!
So it’s sitting there at the news stand. Patiently waiting for readers. I doubt I will be able to wait until after 3 pm when mine will come in the mail.
I think I will go buy 10. I mean, it’s my first article!!
And I am too excited to sleep. So I thought I’d share my good news with YOU GUYS. My readers.
Thank you for being a reader 🙂 If you enjoy reading my blog, will you please share it? Or reblog one of your favorites? Help my little baby-blog grow?

In a time of terrible divisiveness in our country, it is nice to see a diverse group of people coming together for this project. It is important for people to find the things we have in common, and focus on what unites us.
Calling all “George” cheerleaders…celebrate with me a small recognition. Our giant undertaking is making waves in my small community.
I made the FRONT PAGE of the local newspaper !! Check out the coverage “George” is receiving in my small town:
We all have talents. I think it is fundamentally important, that no matter what our talents and passions are…to do something BIG with them.
Making it happen…
We recently had a one year anniversary of this project and after writing an extensive blog article on it, I sent the information to my local town, who then directed me to contact 2 local newspapers, and gave me contact email addresses. I did. One of the newspapers contacted me and collected the information to write the article.
and there’s more…
What is even more exciting for me: they love my blog articles and asked me for sample articles. They are interested in hiring me as a writer/contibuter for the newspaper. Pretty cool huh?
