Ayup, that be me. And anyone who reads this blog on a regular basis (if there IS anyone who qualifies, that is) knows that it wasn't all that long ago that I posted about what a rockin' site that was. Toolmonger.com is like a freakin' porn site for someone like me. And now I write for them. How cool is THAT?!?
I'm assigned to the "find new or interesting tools that we haven't written about before and write a quick note about them" beat. Once I get the hang of it, it will probably be pretty easy to do. And it's something I really feel that I'll enjoy doing, even after the novelty and ego "ohhhh they wanted ME to do this!" factors wear off: I really enjoy writing, even when it's just for my own pleasure. And as brief as these snippets happen to be, I'm writing not just to hear myself think but because people actually come to that website to read what has been written!!
That byline thing has me a little skittish, though. I'd certainly be happy enough if it wasn't there; introvert that I am, I don't have a problem letting all the glory go to the Powers That Be who run the blog, and just knowing for myself which things I wrote. Now I'll be seriously Googleable I guess.
Since this is my house blog I suppose I should give an update on the house:
- I did a little more work on the dining room floor, but not much.
- I put the books in the new bookcase and I'm picking up another bookcase from freecycle tomorrow. We're now four empty boxes closer to being unpacked from our move over a year ago.
- That's all.
