... and make way for Kristi Gilbert, new Columnist/ Contributor for Patch (AOL's local news arm, which has 775 bureaus across the country). The Editor came across my blog and inquired as to whether or not I would be interested in writing for them. I have been specifically asked to write for the local Hinsdale-Clarendon Hills bureau and I will have my very own "Mommy column" which will cover all sorts of things including being new to the area and our adventures in and around Clarendon Hills & Hinsdale. Exciting stuff! It's not the Tribune, but I'll take it! And even better... it pays!
I have a feeling I'll be getting writer's block now that there is pressure... and a Sunday evening deadline. I'll keep you posted as things evolve. Wish me luck! :)
