So, I don't think I've mentioned this yet, but I've got an official job at the Washington Monthly. It's basically a handyman kind of job, where I keep the business side going on a daily basis, and do anything else that needs doing, like some guest-blogging.

It's not exactly a well-paid job, and there aren't benefits, but given that it's the Monthly I think it's about as good as could be expected. Obviously there are a lot of opportunities here too, but I think the most important part is that I really like the place and the people. A lot of people I know these days are stuck in jobs making a lot more money than me, but doing things they hate with people they don't like. I'm young, with very low overhead, and I think the side benefits of having a job you really like in the right field is easily worth the low pay. I'll stay here for awhile, count my blessings, and try to get some more stuff published.


  1. Congratulations! the place needs some new blood. Good luck!
