Reconnecting on Linked In

February 3rd, 2009 at 10:32 pm

I'm on LinkedIn, the professional networking site. What a blast it's been "rediscovering" old friends or colleagues from long ago. Today I reconnected with someone who worked as a news reporter at the same paper I did, about 25 years ago. Since then, he published a book (fiction) and has a contract to publish two more. He's a "success." I would be tempted to tell you his name, because he is the son of a very famous musician, but I will respect his privacy.

I also had a nice online chat with my very first editor at the very first newspaper I worked at on Cape Cod. She still works and lives on the Cape, but at a different paper. I had the opportunity to tell her how her solid editing skills taught me a lot as a young writer, and really set the stage for my future career. How often do you get to thank someone for changing your life in some way? I was grateful for the opportunity.

    Try this website: taylortownpreview.com

    She usually has the list of coupons up by Thursday before they come out. You can order exactly the coupons you want. Most cost $.10 a piece, plus the $.42 stamp to mail them to you.

    If you see some really good coupons that go with a sale happening *that* week, then go ahead and get the paper, otherwise this is a way to get *just* the coupons you will actually use.
