For those who follow my writing, and I hope your numbers are growing, I wanted to make a quick announcement. I am now, officially, a professional writer/reporter/blogger/editor what-have-you. Instead of trudging through work everyday in the unforgiving world of business/finance, I have elected to write about it. Because writing is much more fun.
As I said a while back, from January through May, I was on a stint in a non-permanent capacity working as a reporter in Forbes’ Washington DC Bureau. Today I started working for The Atlantic. Permanently, full-time, etc. I am a new blogger/editor for their Business Channel. That means that I will be writing a lot, all the time. Think of it as what I used to do here, focused on business and economics, on steroids, except that I’m getting paid for it.
That also means that I am officially moving to the DC area. I’m still subletting in Arlington, trying to decide (opinions welcome) if it’s worth paying approximately 4% in higher taxes to live in DC, or if I should stay a little further out in the trendy northern Virginia suburbs. (I say that without a hint of sarcasm. NoVA rules.) I leave behind New York City. Good riddens. Been there, done that, got the I HEART NY T-shirt. May it rest in
its rats’ feces peace.
Does that mean synchrodan.com will cease existence? Of course not. The Atlantic is not particularly interested in my ramblings on topics like the paparazzi, Gari or peeing. So I hope to still blog on other non-business/finance/economics topics through this site. In the event that I do other cool stuff like TV or radio, I’ll be sure to post about that here too.
Anyway, if you’re interested in my Atlantic work, check it out here:
