A Confession

Red hasn't posted about herself in quite some time. All this blogging about food and fun stuff has been way more exciting than the posts that frequented this site a good year ago--all that job hunting feels oh-so-distant. But Red was always acutely aware that the tagline of the blog was all about getting into magazine publishing, and that she hassn't quite gotten there yet.

...But what now?

Well, you see, Red has been doing a lot of interesting work in the hours of the day that are not 9-6 (and sometimes, just sometimes, on lunch breaks too). And much of it, she's happy to admit, is magazine related. There's plenty of good news to share, but she'll reveal it slowly... when the time is right.

For now, this is what you might want to know. All this break time Red's been taking from this here blog has been well justified (or so she hopes)--those few "free" hours in the day have one towards something big and exciting, something oh-so-magazine-y. It's an annual publication that a kind someone put her in charge of--a magazine for magazine folk, if you will--and the work has been gearing up to something really magnetic. It's a killer project--just what Red loves to do, knows how to do, and is still just a *teeny weeny bit* intimidated by. But what's the fun if it's not a challenge?

So where does that leave us? Newly-turned Editor-in-Chief Red has lots of work on her plate, but she loves getting the love from all of you. She'll be popping in regularly, in any and every minute that time permits her to, but maybe not every single day.

Is that OK with you? Your blessing would make her feel so much better.

In the meantime, while you think about it, maybe you should go over here... this recipe for nectarine scones sounds like summer in a bun.

If you hadn't noticed, Red's taking the week off. Why? It's her birthday today! And with a short week for the Fourth, things are a little busy. Stick around--big news is on the way!
