I’m very excited to share with anyone who reads this that I scored some sweet freelance work with a great online community-based news organization called Patch. I was contacted by the editor of the Coronado Patch, Kimberly Cunningham, about 3 weeks ago. When she asked what I was interested in writing about, can you guess what the first thing I blurted out was??
I told her I was a foodie and was completely obsessed with all things edible. I sent over my resume, some writing samples, and of course this wonderful blog url. She hired me and I am lucky enough to be doing a little of something I really enjoy–writing about something I have a passion for.
My section will be called “Fresh From the Farmers’ Market” and will be weekly. I get to travel down to Coronado on Tuesdays, check out the goods at the market, and find a story. The website launches next Thursday, September 30. You can go to patch.com to check out other patches, or, come next Thursday, go to coronado.patch.com and check it out.
I feel truly blessed, not just to write about food, but to be given this work as my very first professional journalism experience. I hope many more opportunities blossom from this one. For now, stay tuned, I’m working on getting a Cuban Black Beans and Rice recipe up here!
Thanks again to all who follow and read this, all for the love of food!
