Hip hip hooray – today is the day!
My very first of ten columns runs in the newspaper today.
As I mentioned before, I decided not to included my blog address in my byline. I like my little blogging world and I am enjoying the anonymity of it. There are less then a dozen people in my life who know of my blog’s existence. I have given this a lot of thought and while I would love to see my happy band of readers increase, I want to feel comfortable writing whatever I choose; right now I do.
I have been vague about where we live on purpose and I have tried to keep our last name off this blog. I have messed up a couple times and had to fix some posts after they were published so those of you who are stalkers already know who I am and where I live. And seriously you are either really crappy at stalking because I have not seen you or you are really good at stalking because I have not seen you. Either way, knock it off.
So, if I ask nicely, can I trust that you will keep my secret? If you click on the link, read my column, and become inspired to leave a comment on the newspaper’s site, will you refrain from calling me Shoes or mentioning my blog? Yes? Excellent!
So here you go. Those of you who get the actual black and white newspaper bust out your silly putty, press it down on my headshot and have hours of fun distorting my face. I apologize that the online articles are not accompanied by the writers’ headshots but I don’t think silly putty is good for computer monitors anyway.
The only thing the editor changed was my title, Moving Between Worlds, which I personally think is better than what they came up with.
I hope you enjoy it! Here you go.
