Some Exciting News

To those of you who read my post yesterday:

I wrote that piece with fiery fingers, it wasn't nice. I decided to take it down because it was pissing off half of you and upsetting the rest. I'd actually like to leave this whole drinking and driving episode behind me now because I'm over it and I learned a good lesson. I'm probably going to turn the story into a weekly series but before I announce any more about that I'm going to give it some thought.

Anyways, I'm back! You can all expect daily blog updates, just like old times.

I also have some really exciting news. This weekend I was sort of offered two jobs, one writing some freelance stuff and the other?

Drum roll please.....

In two weeks I'm going to be My Broadband's new tech journalist! It's South Africa's sixth largest website and I'm going to get to spend all day writing about and testing TV's, computers, phones, games etc. I'm so happy to be joining their editorial team and I'm even happier to finally have a REAL writing job!

PS: If you happen to want to vote for me in the South African Blogger Awards 2009 (and you should, please) then you can do so here. Thanks!

Don't you just love new jobs...
well, I don't mean it like that..you shouldn't be going out and getting new jobs just because you love them...
I mean, it's exciting. All except for the process of the application filling and interviewing...

Way To Go!!
