That's a Wrap!

I just wrapped my first day blogging over at ATL. Whew. Blogging for a living is mentally tiring, but I enjoyed several things about it. I got to write about things that I find interesting, and I liked the fast pace. I get distracted easily, so it's nice to have a forum for writing short, direct posts.

The process starts with reading a vast amount of news and commentary, then filtering what news you do or don't have something funny to say about. After you figure out what you can write about, you have to filter it again for relevancy. Then you write the post. It goes like this over and over again, until the day is over.

It was brutal but exciting. David and I did a tag-team effort today, so he could show me how to use the system. Next Friday, I'm doing it all alone. Talk about pressure.

Overall, people have been pretty encouraging, and I'm ecstatic about the opportunity.

Don't listen to the haters and jerks. These guys wouldn't have the guts to approach you in person and get shot down. I like your wit and style, and I hope you have a long run on ATL.

If you are going to hate at least use proper grammar. "Your" is not the same as "you're." Also there are spaces between periods in ellipses and between the preceding and trailing words.
Ex: The hater . . . really liked it in his butt.
