I’m still not satisfied, but I’ll keep at it. For starters, I want to remove the slogan, “Thoughts from a small-town newspaperman.”
For the life of me, I can’t figure out how to do it.
This blog will be more than a mere daily journal, but much has happened in the past few days, so it’s worth some comment.
My day started this morning at that newspaper whose name I no longer feel like promoting. Had to clean out my old office.
Much of the rest of the day was spent networking — on the phone, via text messages, tweets and Facebook comments. Oh, yeah, I met a real, live person for some networking at lunch. And I may have also done some successful networking in a cycling class this morning at the Muscatine Community Y. I guess the lesson in that is you never know who you might meet — or where you might meet.
And the same is true online. It pleases me that this little blog has had more dialogue with readers in the past 24 hours than has that old newspaper’s website. I know who only some of you are. To anyone else who may be following this effort, I’m glad you’re here. Please keep coming back and posting comments. Also, please be sure to tell others about this little corner of the Internet.
That’s it for now. It feels as if I’ve worked hard today and I really haven’t done much. I’m tired.
Here’s to getting some better sleep tonight. But first, let me tease you with a news tip: Something interesting is going to happen in Muscatine on March 7. Once again, I think I may be the only Muscatine reporter in the room and I’m looking forward to it.
