TM Forum/Management World Americas

I took a moment away from shipping Florida Press Club awards to attend the TM Forum/Management World Americas event at the Rosen Shingle Creek Resort (where we had our 2009 FPC banquet*) in Orlando. The people at SmartMark Communications had kindly asked to host a breakfast for the members of the Florida Press Club, but […]

More quick tidbits

More quick bites: Our intern put the winners online: http://www.floridapressclub.org/Contest/win2010-1.html. Jennifer wrote a very sad resignation letter for our front page. I camped in Melbourne Beach over the weekend with my lovely college friends and met some new friends through them during our annual celebration of my friend Bonnie’s birthday (You might have seen her […]

FPC banquet concludes, and NaNoWriMo begins

Yours truly had a very fun (but exhausting) weekend with the Florida Press Club, so brevity is essential at this point. I went straight to work after my drive from St. Pete Beach, and today I had to pay our plaque guy and organize receipts before going to work again. In no particular order: Thank […]

Florida Press Club crunch

Have I mentioned we need a contest coordinator for next year, so all of you fantastic journalists, copy editors, designers, online journalists, freelance journalist and every other kind of -journalist can keep reeling in those awards? You do want your awards, right, and on time? Consider it said: We’re in grave danger of not having […]

Model self-promoter

I love doing new things, so when my co-worker Jacque, who sits across from me, mentioned needing a model to display her amazing crochet work for her stylish Etsy shop, I said, “Absolutely!” (And how could I resist having “model” on my resume?) Definitely check her store out for birthday or Christmas presents. I particularly […]

Typo hunts and other things to do

Ha, between planning for the upcoming Florida Press Club banquet in October, motivating myself to finish a restaurant review and book review for the News-Journal, plus nabbing possible freelance work — relax HR, nothing against my contract — it’s easy to forget to update. Very easy because I thought I had linked to an interesting […]

In the meantime

Don’t worry. The job hasn’t sucked the life out of me yet! (Haha, I’m joking, Human Resources. I love the people at the N-J!) While I get back into the groove–I’ve been both the trainer and the trainee in these past couple of weeks–I want to direct some hits to The Florida Press Club‘s website* […]


Writing that my grandmother died Feb. 14 felt too hard to write, so that’s why I took such a long break. Mom-Mom, as I called her, and I had a remarkable relationship, and she was always there when I needed her. Last night, I was reminded of how thoughtful she was while I was cleaning […]


I’ve been insanely busy now, but I wanted to mention I have a book review published in the News-Journal. Strangely, though, I cannot find it online. I will have to remedy that. The Florida Press Club conference was fabulous. Thank you to Sara Quinn for stepping in to be our speaker, since Lucy Morgan had […]
