I mentioned in my small goals post for the month that I was starting a new job. It’s true! This week I start working for Taste of Home, a food magazine based in Milwaukee. I’m really excited to start a career in a new industry, and I’m absolutely thrilled to be working back downtown.
This is a really wonderful opportunity for me to stretch my writing muscles in new way. For the first time in my professional career, I’ll be writing copy for copy’s sake (and not to sell sweaters, socks, wheelchairs or diapers). I’m a touch sad to not call myself a copywriter anymore (I really was trying to live that Peggy Olson life), but I also think that associate digital editor has a nice ring to it.
I’m a day into this new gig, but if the Mary Berry welcome sign at my desk is any indication of how this gig will go, I think I’ll be just fine.
