Simply Delightful!

I love my blog.

I have been thinking about that for the past 24 hours, and I just had to say it. I met Mike because of my blog – along with a lot of other fantastic H-Town bloggers. I’ve made close friends that I adore through my blog. And the latest? I got to work today doing something I could absolutely love – and I’m there because of my blog. Leslie, the owner of the company, is a long-time reader of my blog.

So, what am I doing? I have a feeling it will be a matter of “you name it!” – and I love working like that. Today I wrote copy for an advertisement postcard for a pigeon hunting trip in Paraguay. Who knew that there are something like 8 million pigeons there and that people hunt them? Then I worked on gathering content for newsletters for two different companies. I started working on gathering information for a client that is working on applying for grants and needs a comprehensive list of companies, requirements and deadlines. After that, Leslie & I discussed a client that needs a website created in 4 weeks. We’re writing all the content for it. My task? To determine what pages we will need and come up with the content (they have an existing site and brochures which is done by a brochure design in NYC) to fill it up while keeping it nice and clean.

The office is in a small house just inside of the loop, near Memorial Park. I could take my bike down there and go ride it in the park. There are four of us set up in the living room, and while I would have assumed it would be loud or annoying, it really wasn’t. I have yet to meet the graphic designer, but my other two co-workers were great. I was quite instantly at ease.

There is even an office dog, Ramona. Just like Ramona from the Beverly Cleary books. She is adorable, and I’m normally a cat person. An office dog – how cool is that? An office dog. That just rocks!

Seriously, I don’t think it could get any better. I get to work with nice, hard-working people. It is already obvious that Leslie truly believes in keeping everyone informed as to what is going on within the company. I get to do work that not only requires thinking, but creativity. I’ve learned that the combination is key to my happiness, and I left there today quite happy.

i want to be the first to say that i haven’t seen you this happy about working before. as someone who has met you because of your blog, and have been reading your blog for years (and gotten to know you in person), i haven’t seen you this enthusiastic about working before! and i think it’s great! and working in a house is great! even with a house dog! how more family-oriented can this be? i’m very happy for you, Christine!

Well, at first I was going to say that I have been just as happy starting out in the past. However, that’s not entirely true – I am a pretty observant person, and I can pick up on things sometimes. You know, the whole “vibe” thing. I have been able to sense the problems lingering in the background right away, even if they don’t come to a head for months or years down the road.

So yes, you are right. I’m really happy about working there. (And I’m not just saying that to suck up to Leslie or anything!)
