Been interviewed on national TV a couple of times.The only thing missing is a full-time job that I love. They're a little scarce right now, but I know that's coming.
Appeared in a national magazine or two, and a major daily newspaper.
Been featured on some high-visibility websites.
Started a couple of blogs that earn coverage in the trade press now and then.
Had some writing published in a number of outlets.
Started writing silly stuff on a regular basis for The Huffington Post (the latest one went up today).
Tricked a literary agent into taking me on as a client.
Got myself on the Twitter and the Facebook.
Found steady freelance employment.
Pulled my weight in terms of putting food on the table and kids through college.
Had some serious fun.
In short, I am doing better than OK--pretty well in fact--and am looking forward to what comes next. I sincerely hope that the friends and colleagues who share this dubious anniversary with me can say the same.
