Dispatches from the living amongst journalism's walking dead

The next steps….

It’s been just shy of a year since I posted about my decision to come to TBD. It was such an exciting time and such a great opportunity – I had no idea that less than a year later I’d be out the door and on to the next thing.

After I was laid off at TBD, I was prompted to really think about What I Wanted to Do Next. It was a hard question to answer, because what I wanted to do next was continue working at the TBD I knew. I guess I’ll take the something close, somewhere that’d still let my fly my social media freak flag.

That’s why I’m happy to say I’ll soon be heading up social media for Huffington Post Politics here in D.C. No details yet, but I’m excited to be staying in D.C., still working for an innovative social media shop and getting into the three-ring circus of politics.

It was a tough choice to pick a next path that I struggled with all week, but I think it’s going to be a ton of fun.
