Being a punk pays off sometimes... Cheers!
At the beginning of this month I took a leave of absence from Kit Burns was framed! and told everyone that it was possibly the start of something big. I also said that if it didn't pan out, we wouldn't speak of it again.
Well I am pleased to report that it has worked out. I have just accepted a position with about.com to be their punk music writer! It's my first staff writing job outside of advertising, and I am so excited, I'm gonna pop!
What does that mean for my regular readers? A few things...
First, you'll have another blog to read my writing on, as well as articles, interviews and reviews.
Second, I have ten days to bring my site live, so my posts here will be sparse for the next two weeks. Once that site is up, I should have plenty of time to devote to both places. My posts at thisaremusic may suffer, as I will be writing about music in another place (sorry Mike!).
If this were an acceptance speech, I'd thank everyone who reads and comments here. This site has allowed me to exercise my writing skills and keep my chops fresh, as well as provided a place to get people to read what I have to say. Thanks guys!
I'll let you all know when the new site is live, and I expect you all to visit me there!
