Back in January I introduced to you all a new writer that was brought on board to blog here at Pink is the New Blog and for the last 6 months, Melissa has been a faithful and hard worker … for all of us. Today I am taking a bit of time to formally welcome a newer writer to the site. For the past week or so, Shannon (who playfully and cleverly introduced herself HERE) has been posting to the site and based on the response from the vast majority of people, she has been doing a most excellent job. As a result, I am ecstatic to reveal that Shannon is here to stay and will be writing for PITNB forever and ever and ever (well, if I get my way, that is).
I think you will all agree that Shannon brings a very fresh, funny and terribly interesting new voice to the site and we are very lucky to have her. Shannon has written for other publications so her mastery of the written word is a welcome addition. I got to meet Shannon in person for the first time a couple of months ago on one of our visits to NYC … in fact, I had just completed a 6 mile run, I was late for our meeting and she had to endure me in all my gross, sweaty glory … and she still took the job! I knew right then and there that she was a perfect match. As I mentioned back in January, the addition of new voices to the site comes from a desire to heighten the Pink is the New Blog experience. For years, my voice/opinions/perspective have been the sole source of entertainment … but the time for growth and change has come. I am terribly excited by Shannon’s addition to the site and I hope you will continue to welcome her with warmth, friendship and fandom.
Sadly, I must share that Melissa will no longer be writing for the site. Without question, she has proven a dedicated and hard worker since her debut on the site and I thank her so much for her time and dedication to PITNB. I hope you will join me in wishing her all the best in her future endeavors.
With Shannon on board, I think we are all in very good hands. I have a lot more fun NEW stuff planned in the coming weeks and months, stuff that has been in the works for a very long time now. I’m so excited for the next new chapter of fun around here so … stay tuned! As always, I thank YOU all for your loyal support of the site. Pink is the New Blog is nothing without you and I cannot tell you how much it means to me that after 8 years, I see no signs of slowing down. There is goss to be had, y’all! Let’s have at it!
As always, your comments are more than welcome. Let the lovefest commence!!0
