New Blog Alert

Dovetailing nicely with our recent racous discussion of the Mulshine Beast, I discovered Ink Drained Kvetch.

No need for me to add superlatives, I'll let Wendy introduce herself.
My name is Wendy Parker, and after 25 years in the newspaper business, I have left it to pursue new opportunities in journalism. As of Sept. 1, 2008, I have accepted a buyout from the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, where I worked for nearly 19 years, mainly as a sportswriter. For the last four years, I was a producer and editor on the AJC’s website (ajc.com), where I got a chance to reinvent my career...Now, I seek to recreate my career once again. I surprised myself by how easily and enthusiastically I came to embrace digital media. This blog is my attempt to persuade fellow journalists with a primarily print background to understand that if I can do this, so can you.
Now that's what I'm talking about.

Wendy was assigned to the Lady Bulldogs basketball beat up here for years and she is all kinds of awesome. Anything she's got her name on...I'm totally down with it.

Thanks for the plugs from both of you. It really means a lot.
