All that special work I've been immersed in the last few weeks was not for naught......I got a new gig. After an extensive "try-out," I've accepted the position of Editor/Guide to US Liberal Politics at About.com.
My About.com site will go live in about 2 weeks, after I get a boatload more work done on it. My About.com site will explain liberal viewpoints on all major national issues, and will exclusively feature interesting profiles and interviews with longtime and emerging liberal leaders, activists, opinion-makers and more. (I'll be sending out a weekly newsletter on Tuesdays, so be sure to sign up for it.)
Heart, Soul & Humor will continue to publish my outspoken opinion pieces, as it always has. These two sites will be complementary and will be linked together. To read my body of work, you may want to visit both sites.
I'm now part of the press. I'll be accepting pay only from About.com. I'll also be maintaining a blog at About.com, so I'll be considered a professional, as versus amateur, blogger....which means I can't compete in some of the cool awards contests in the blogosphere.
I'll make the announcement here when my new About.com site goes live. I truly look forward to bringing you more clarity on US politics in a colorful, interesting, accessible manner.
Thank you for your loyal readership. I am grateful.
