One year ago today I left my job as a TV production nerd to become an idealistic grad school dork and figure out what is happening to journalism in this new world and many other clichÃ©d terms that describe our migration from print to digital formats. And it is today that I finally say goodbye to the place I spent my days in the past year. Whether through school, working on our wonderful creation during the Summer, or helping the past few weeks to get an online newspaper built by high school journalism teachers up and running, I have spent a lot of time at the Reynolds School.
Today was the last day I’ll spend there because I am moving on. On Monday I start a new job at the Nevada Commission on Tourism. I’ll be writing for the website, brochures, and other material. I really can’t wait to get started. In fact, I think I’ll kick ass at it because I really like Nevada and want to tell everyone about it. Yup, more clichÃ©s, but at least this time there isn’t a better way to say it.
What will happen with this site? I really don’t know quite yet. My initial thoughts are that it will remain the same. In fact, I probably will be more active because my brain will be working in the same fashion each day. But we’ll see. You can follow where I take the day job on my personal site. I’ll at the very least update there, and have a few other things in the works, so keep your eyes open.
*Not a year exactly, but 52 weeks, yes.
