Here it goes, my 1st blog post. Seems the shoe is on the other foot after this week’s terror attacks in France. The world ignores terrorism against Israelis. Now, they feel a lot more sympathy because it happened in France. Probably won’t be the last attack against a Western democracy. The world has to act & put an end to it, wherever it is. In the meantime, enjoy this picture I found on Facebook. Perhaps the world should put the same demands on France as it does to Israel.
About the authorThe journalism “business” has changed — from standards to platforms to layoffs — along with the American public, and I’ve managed to survive somewhat on my own terms.
I started in 1994, becoming an award-winning and respected TV newscast producer.
Even better was creatively producing websites and social media, and serving as a station's digital media manager — writing news, creating graphics and getting evidence of growing my audience here in the nation's fourth largest market, Philadelphia.
I also taught first grade for eight years. My principal saw my class website and made me electronic gradebook manager to assist co-workers when we stopped using paper gradebooks.
In 2018, I took courses and earned the Google IT Support Professional Certificate.
In 2019, I was a freelance newspaper reporter, but enjoyed copy editing and reviving the publication’s social media even more.
That got me striking out on my own with a local news website to join the blog I created, designed and write.
Ask me about all the details.
I did drive Uber to make ends meet until I started as a customer service representative at one of the world’s largest web-hosting companies, with more than 8 million customer contracts and hosting more than 12 million domains.
With classroom and newsroom experience, I know how to prioritize, analyze and take the best course of action. Getting results means attention to detail, following through and following up.
