Ch-ch-ch-changes: Part II

Featured

First, I must thank many of you who reached out to me after my last post. Your positive energy was much appreciated. I think it worked, because not only did I land my first contract writing gig, I also got rehired for my editing position. Yipee! The contract writing will be a part-time grant writing job that I can do from Israel. That’s a very exciting development and lovely way for me to step back into the nonprofit world. Then, the story about my position, well…how about you read this Jpost post, titled, “Working it: Some advice about journalism in Israel,” to get the full picture? :).

In any case, I’m very excited for these next steps and really appreciate all of your support. Hope you’re doing well, and look forward to seeing many of you in the Bay Area over Thanksgiving!

Interviewed Jimmy Wales, Co-Founder of Wikipedia

I have to say, one of the coolest things I’ve gotten to do so far in journalism was this interview. Jimmy Wales, co-founder of Wikipedia, was in Israel last month for Wikipedia’s annual conference. He had a lot of interesting things to say about Wikipedia, journalism, and the tent protests going on in Israel. Check it out!
