A new chapter

I set up this blog a few months ago to have a medium to entertain and interact with friends, family and readers in a different way. But, when you write for a living, it doesn’t always leave time to keep up with side projects. It looks like that’s going to change.

As most of you know, I’ve been writing for the Washington Post’s D.C. Sports Bog for the last two years. I’ve been under contract, and in December I was told that they were turning my position into an employee position. It would mean that I would be required to apply for my job, which at the time wasn’t a big deal.

Unfortunately, when the job description was sent out in January it was not for the job I currently hold. There were some fundamental changes and new requirements that I felt I could not successfully do while raising the infant that is due in May.

I’ve spent the last couple of months trying to work with the Post to stay on in some capacity, but it looks like that won’t be happening. My contract is up at the end of February, and I’ll be leaving the Post at that time.

I’m not sure what the next step will be yet (Ezra, call me maybe?). The goodbyes can wait for now. I’ll be with the Post until the end of the month, and you can always find me on Twitter, via email and in this space.

Good luck. You did a great job. The blog is one of the best things in the paper and a rare source of wit in a town that needs more wit.
