Movin' on up

So the features editor at our paper just resigned, and the higher-ups promoted me to her position! I happily said yes, and then, in a fit of insanity, I proposed that I not only do her job but I continue to do mine.

Why did I do that, you ask? I have no idea. Perhaps I’m a control freak. Perhaps I’ve grown too attached to my little twice weekly Bluffton Packet tabloid. Honestly, I think it has more to do with the fact that I just hired one of the coolest young reporters ever, and I didn’t want to stop working with her.

For whatever reason, the idea seemed to make sense at the time, and it was a proposal that was accepted by the publisher as “brilliant.” So now I’ll be in charge of three reporters, an assistant features editor, a news clerk and a host of freelancers.

Wish me luck! I’m sure as hell gonna need it.
