A big New York thank you--fuhgeddahboudit!
In the wee hours of Tuesday morning, I took a piece I'd posted here awhile back called New York Stories, tweaked the title and did a few minor edits, and reposted it over at Blogcritics. To my delight, it generated a nice number of comments, and I had a ball bantering back and forth and talking real estate with various folks. It quickly made it to the "hot topics" board and was named an Editor's Pick of the Week. I'm proud to say that in the two months I've been over at BC, this piece is the sixth Editor's Pick I've garnered.
I'd republished two other New York Story Shithouse posts to "the BC," and I now officially have a column called "New York Stories" for these kinds of essays. I plan to import some other New York stories I've printed here, as well as devise some new ones--so it's all good.
I'm grateful that I have a forum here where I can let it all out and kvetch, and my blogpals will understand and sympathize. It means so much to me, so thank you guys!
