If you’ve been wondering why I suddenly went silent last week, it has nothing to do with turkey. Last week was crazy. We hired two new reporters, one for Northbridge and one for — wait for it — Millbury.
That’s right. As of right now, I’m editing three hyperlocal news sites. Not bad for a chick who was laid off a year ago and thought she’d left journalism, eh?
Its new writer, I’m happy to say, is Charlene Arsenault, who wrote for Worcester Magazine up until last year. I think she actually was laid off around the same time I was. It’s nice to actually be in the position to re-employ journalists who have absolutely no business being without a job.
So! Three news sites in one year, and we only started at the end of March. Who knows what’s in store for 2010?
