Earlier this year I was pleased to announce that I would be writing a weekly column for the Barnes County Independent. Now I’m very happy to say that the Ashley Tribune will also be carrying my column starting this week. My good friend, and Tribune publisher/editor, Tony Bender is also threatening to include an article about me announcing the column.
He’s a creative man, but he’ll be working from decidedly uninteresting subject matter.
On a related note, if there are any editors or publishers out there interested in picking up my column, please write me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
As a writer, I’m finding that I enjoy this more traditional newspaper-style column format. It’s a very different medium from blogging. You can’t just throw up a few links to explain the back story while introducing a topic. You can’t just put up a picture or a graph to quickly illustrate a point. I finding it a challenging departure from the sort of writing I’m used to, and so far it’s been a lot of fun.
I’m glad of the opportunity to do it.
