For Me was part of Hachette Filipacchi Media (the company that publishes mags like Women’s Day) and they paid me incredibly well, so I was psyched about our whole relationship. Alas… As I’ve said before, I apparently have the unmidas touch.
But I’m nothing if not resourceful.
Indeed, things seem to have balanced out. I’ve been doing the editing thing for ION since the beginning of the year, and that’s going really well. I joined the board of the WMA Foundation (also a fairly major plus), and as of this week, I’ve become a Fresh Daily blogger for Beyond Robson. So maybe that thing about stuff happening in threes (both good and bad) is true. At least, it’s true when you work for it.
Anyway, the new issue of ION is out. I wrote a story about the RBC painting competition (only because some flaky freelancer didn’t fulfil her responsibility to turn in a story and I had to scramble at the last minute), and my friend Sarah did one about PostSecret.
