A Brand New Venture

Well, I guess I should go ahead and christen this blog with its first post. For those who are new to my blog, I am a 25-year old editorial assistant working at a dream job in children's book publishing. I've been blogging for 5 years now (god, I can't believe it's been that long now) and I thought it was high time I made the switch from the not-so-private diary format that I'm used to, to a more journalistic, public style of blogging. So here I am, coming out from behing the filters and starting a blog where I have to think before I speak, where I am forced to post intelligently because the whole world is watching. It's an exciting concept and I'm looking forward to it. And of course, I'll always have my old filters to go back to when I need them, but for now I'd like to raise a glass to the start of a brand new blogging adventure.

...now I just need to find myself a glass

...and some champagne

Welcome! Hurray! And I, too, raise a fake glass of champagne to toast you.

Hey, congrats on the dream job! I'm looking to get into publishing too, but I'm not sure how to go about it. I still have a couple of years left in school to get my honours in English, then I was thinking of taking some kind of college course in publishing (and perhaps creative writing, if I can squeeze that in).
Any suggestions on how to get started?
Congrats on the new blog, look forward to reading updates!

Oh, and incase you were wondering who I am, I'm dreamabella from Livejournal. :0)
I forgot I even had a blog here... good thing I keep a little black book of URLs and passwords.
Now, back to my essay (last one of the year, SO HAPPY!). LOL

Hey Laura. Thanks for the comments. It's been FOREVER!

As for publishing tips...well, you've just inspired my next blog post. I'll try to update sometime tomorrow with some good advice.
