Look What the Cat Dragged In..

Sorry for the elongated absence, folks. There is good news to be had amongst it all, though. After four years and a series of false starts, myCaledon has finally launched. I set out to make a really good website based on the Toronto.com model for the small town I live in just north of T.O. It’s taken an incredible amount of time and effort but it’s finally up, and feedback has been great so far. I produced a print ad and put it in the local paper yesterday and I’ve already seen a significant amount of traffic come through, including entries in the contest.

Wild.

In other news, and I have no idea if they’ll find this page through a web search or my e-mail address, I’ve taken a stab at furthering my journalistic desires by applying at the National Post, a Canada-wide newspaper published by the Southam folks. They’re seeking a Sports Reporter to cover the National Hockey League daily for the paper and as soon as I saw it the gears started up. I’ve been writing about hockey on Gaming Jackpots for a while now and love it, and my columns are always well received. Hopefully the National Post agrees – I’ll keep everyone posted.

Speaking of that, hockey season is almost here! Who’s up for a pool? Let me know in the comments if you’re in, I’ll set one up soon.

Cheers!
