A busy Silly Girl

It has been awhile since I posted. I have been busy writing, being a Mom and interviewing for two editor's positions.

The interview process was four hours long and involved five people. I arrived twenty minutes early to be interviewed by the regional editor JB. He asked some tough questions but I was prepared. I have given a lot of thought about becoming an editor of a newspaper. It will not be easy but I feel I am up for the challenge. Ed position #1 is at twice a week paper with a staff of two writers and copy editor. Ed position #2 is at a weekly where I would be the sole writer and editor along with some freelance writers. There would be no layout and design. This is taken care of at the daily paper. I would love to have position #2 because I am not good at giving orders. Both jobs are multimedia based with posting to the website and using a video camera. Overall, it I got a position at either paper--it would be an excellent learning experience. Both are relatively close to home. Ed position #1 is 45 minutes away. Ed position #2 is an hour and half away. Hopefully, I will know something soon.

I was also interviewed by the current editor of position #1. Excellent benefits package. I'll keep you posted with the results.

I have been swamped with assignments and stuff. Today, interviewed a town clerk and tonight is an organizational meeting for bring Habitat for Humanity to the county. Tomorrow, I take pictures at a graduation and later that evening attend the high school graduation of my cousins. I am staying busy which keeps me from dwelling on things and stressing out.

Still haven't heard from the reporter's position I interviewed for last month. I have heard that the newspaper let another reporter go so the paper is now has two positions opened. Very interesting!!!
