It’s hard not to feel a little bummed this week; the holiday season is over, the snow has turned to pouring rain, and George is heading back to the boat at 5 a.m. Thursday to finish tying up loose ends before the first dump of the Dungeness crab pots on January 12.
I’m never one to let a dreary outlook affect me for more than a couple of hours, though. There are too many exciting things going on all the time!
For example, my mom called last night to tell me that the February 2009 issue of National Fisherman had arrived, and inside was my article in Dock Talk! It’s exciting and scary all at once when something you’ve written is now in black and white and in the hands of tens of thousands of readers. Even scarier when your own issue has not yet arrived, so you can’t get a look at it yourself!
Anyway, it’s in this spirit that I’ve decided today is the day to launch my new website. George gave it a final once-over last night and it passed inspection with him, so after I do one more glance through it myself, I think it’s a go.
Update: Here’s the link to the website. I was going to wait a little longer to post it, but I can see some of you have already found the site (judging by the site stats!). Thanks for going over to check it out!
