40ish and beyond... 40ish and beyond...

A shameless brag on myself! ******UPDATE, IM SHAKING!!!!!!*******

UPDI began a media project a few months ago. I guess you could say its an online magazine. It wasnt something I thought of as a money maker but more of a media vent and celebration of parenthood. Im getting ready to go live and I have been really doubting my abilities. Well I just got a letter from our local newspaper publisher who bolstered my enthusiasm greatly.

I had sent him a letter to the editor a long while back about politicians viewing statistics with the blindness to the faces that comprise those very numbers they use to determine funding throughout the year. The newspaper publisher sent me an email asking to publish my letter as an article outside of a letter to the editor and to tell me to pursue writing because he found my work talented. 

(He didnt offer me a job, but I will take it anyway!) 


****I JUST GOT ANOTHER EMAIL FROM THE NEWSPAPER PUBLISHER ASKING IF I WOULD BE INTERESTED IN BEING A FREELANCE WRITER FOR THE PAPER! OF COURSE I SAID YES!******

Your entitled to brag shamelessly.  That is quite an accomplishment.  I'm certainly impressed!  All those who have been telling you that you're brilliant have been proved right.  Congratulation!  May this be just the beginning of your success.  ~ Cutios

I absolutely love your avatar. Morticia!. the only picture I ever saw of my mother was one in which she looked just like Morticia. I still remember that so vividly and that was over 40 years ago. Love it!
