I was planning on building the packing box today, and I may still get some of it done. Unfortunately, I doubt I’ll get it done…but it was for a fortunate reason. Last night, I bought a weekly newspaper here in town. I’ve been a political blogger for the past several years and about two years ago I became a columnist for The Albany Journal. On November 1 of this year, I become the publisher of The Albany Journal.
I sent out a press release this morning, then took my son to school only to learn it was pouring rain. I work outside. No big deal really. Well, now it’s not raining and I’ve had several phone calls including a local television station who wants to do a story on the purchase. You see, as best as I can tell, this is the first time a blog has ever purchased a newspaper. Pretty cool huh?
So, I have an interview in a little over an hour, and I have a couple of other things to do, and I’m not 100% sure I’ll get the packing box done. However, it’s a heck of a reason, right?
For what it’s worth, it’s even wood related. Paper is made out of wood, right????? ;)
