Hello to all the Florida Press Club members coming here from The Bee, our lovely newsletter. (Go to floridapressclub.org to download it.) And, yes, the name has a meaning. Ask me at the banquet.
The other officers and I have been very hard at work notifying finalists, promoting the workshop and banquet, coordinating with our awards guy for plaques and certificates, and doing general club maintenance. So, if my blog is not as lively as normal, please give me a pass. (For example, it’s 3:30 a.m., and I just finished a round of emails to our members.)
I’ve never been afraid of hard work. I also don’t mind sharing when I am working hard because I feel it’s equally important to let everyone know the effort involved in doing something like this.
You are your best cheerleader — or should be in this day and age. So, on that note, feel free to click around on my website.
- I am partial to a recent social media post inspired by Poynter: “Social Butterfly Effect.”
- I interviewed my favorite author for this post (whose new book I coincidentally received this week) and wrote about my experiences talking to her in “Kim Harrison mentions Q&A on her blog.”
- My rant against e-mail being changed to email caused a random Twitter user to comment on “AP Style: e-mail is now email.”
- For my favorite older posts, you should click on a blog roundup I did back in February after a friend recommended my blog.
My writing, designing and editing clips are also available, but on a limited basis due to my company’s policy. If you need something, just ask.
