Oh I'm so excited! I have been put in charge of doing the layout for our brand new company newsletter. I've even been given Microsoft Publisher to work with, after complaining heavily about the constraints of Microsoft Word for such projects.

This is my thing, you see. I am completely in my glory and totally focused in on this to the exclusion of my real job of editing. Those damn court deadlines can wait, right? The best part is, because I've got an awesome supervisor with a sense of humor, it's not just going to be a dull and dry "4th Quarter Earnings were up, Biff now works in the IT Department" newsletter. It's going to be bright and funny and brilliant!

There's about 7 or 8 of us on the newsletter committee, and I hope I'm not stepping on anyone's toes. They are using a lot of my ideas, and I'm trying hard to listen as well as give input at the meetings. They don't like my name for the newsletter, though, which I was disappointed about.
I'll post a page when the final layout is in. Sometimes I wish I could work for a big corporation, just doing their newsletter, but then it would probably stop being fun, wouldn't it?

    I worked on the department newsletter for the last couple of places I worked before I became a stay-at-home mom. It was my favorite part of those jobs! And both times I was stuck using MS Word, too. Lucky you!

    Way to go! A few of my freelancer friends have taken up writing newsletters and tell me they love it. I can’t wait to see it. I know you’ll do well.

    Good luck with it, should be a great laugh :-)

    PS thanks for commenting on my blog, and sorry I've only just got round to reading yours. Work tends to get in the way of important things such as wasting time on the 'net.

    And if I'd been more awke I would have remembered to post as myself, not anonymous. Sorry :$

    I got promoted to the IT Department!?! Cool!
    Hey...wait a minute. This company doesn't have an IT Department! D'OH!
