Haven’t been in touch for a while. This is partly the reason.

To those of you eager to read more blog posts here (this is blog #150!), and news on ThePhillyFiles.com, I’m temporarily sorry.

No, I haven’t been sitting around, doing nothing.

I’ve been coming up with new ideas for sections and on a separate note, going out trying to make a living.

This is the email I sent subscribers of ThePhillyFiles.com, a little while ago.

Click here to visit the site.

Click here to subscribe for free. (Hint: If you didn’t get the MailChimp email from that site by now, and it’s not in your spam folder, then you’re not a subscriber.)

You’ll find all of the other links from the email just underneath it.

Click here for easier reading on a separate page.

Enjoy, and please try to make use of ThePhillyFiles.com! There’s already plenty, with more to come.

About the author

The 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.
