Return of the blogger

I’m back! I took sort of an unofficial hiatus from the blog over the past couple of months (well, let’s face it, most of the year) for two reasons: I got a new job and my wife and I had our second child, which doesn’t leave a heck of a lot of spare time for blogging.

The thing about the new job is that it isn’t in journalism. I work for a PR firm now called Weber Shandwick, doing corporate communications. At first, I thought I might have to either abandon the blog entirely or completely reinvent it, now that I’m not in the journalism field anymore. But I’ve thought a lot about it, and now I think that’s a silly attitude. First of all, I love media and media criticism. Haven’t stopped reading the major industry blogs or tweeting on major media stories just because I’m no longer official a reporter. If anything, I should be a little freer now to be more of a media critic (although with the obvious caveat that if a story comes up involving a client, I’ll either loudly disclaim it or, far more likely, won’t write about it. With the specific kind of work I do now, I’m not anticipating it to be a huge deal).

The subject matter covered here might expand slightly to cover my thoughts on PR, being a dad, or life in general, but that was always kind of where I wanted to go with the blog eventually anyway. Working on my first true post, which should be up shortly. As always, I appreciate any feedback, and thanks for reading.
