So, this has been in the works for far too long. Earlier this year Sally Howe, Editor and Owner of the Campbell Express, asked me if I would be interested in writing a column for her newspaper that could cover any topic or topics I wanted to write about. Over the years I've written and contributed to a few articles for her and several photos I've taken have run in her newspaper. I was interested, but was so busy at the time that I asked if she could wait until my schedule opened up at the end of the summer. And guess what? She said yes. Cool!
So what to write about. Hmmmmm. I decided I wanted to cover inspiring ideas so I needed a name that would work whether I was talking about weddings, technology, food, pets, or anything else that struck my fancy. "Try Something New" is what I came up. In each column I will introduce something that I hope will be new to the readers of The Campbell Express. It may be to go somewhere, as in the first issue explaining what brides and grooms can expect at a wedding fair (like the upcoming Bridal Faire at the Ainsley House in downtown Campbell on Sept. 26th), or it may be a project to try at home in the kitchen or something to build or learn about.
I'm very much looking forward to writing for the Campbell Express. In a way, it's like writing a blog post because I always treat my blog posts like news articles in not cutting corners on research to make certain what I'm writing is accurate.
There are three ways to read my column:
