So...guess where I am right now.
I interviewed Wednesday, I was offered it Thursday, I quit my job Friday and, um, what day is it? Oh yeah. I'm now employed by the fine folks at CBS, and will be working full time from the KPIX newsroom as I bring you Eye on Blogs.
It's weird, the twists and turns of life. It's a really weird experience, when your new boss at CBS-5 asks you your college major and you respond, "fashion design." I mean, this wasn't the origianal plan.
But writing and blogging and doing whatever the hell else I do on the internet is without a doubt, my passion. It's why I wake up, I'm horrified to tell you. When the opportunity arose to take a huge risk, leave the security of my friends and family at my day job and see if I could really do this...I grabbed it. And spent the past weekened wondering what I've gotten myself into.
My friend and colleague Brittney Gilbert has created an awesome forum for local bloggers at Eye on Blogs. I plan to continue her work in promoting the talented cast of characters running around the local superhighway. And I plan to do so much more! Once I figure out how to, you know, work a lot of new, computery software.
The next three weeks will be a little nuts, wrapping up the day job and trying to post on Eye on Blogs as much as I can (and again, that's another technical kink to work out), but you guys...I'm sitting at a desk in the KPIX newsroom right now. I can't stop smiling/wondering when they'll figure out what they've done and escort me out of the building.
Please, please, oh God, please support Eye on Blogs in any way you can. We're going to have fun.
I can just feel it.
I love that you read this,
