Went to my first Indy 500 yesterday and had THE BEST TIME! Weather was perfect, racing was dizzying with speed and excitement (J.R. Hildebrand’s final-lap crash was RIGHT in front of us!), and I shared the experience with my family and treasured friends from near and far. The people sitting next to us were from […]

In my former life as editor of Hoof Beats magazine, I attended a meeting of American Horse Publication where writing coach Ann Wylie gave a fantastic presentation on how to make our magazine articles better, and I use her advise every day.

A select gathering of my Ohio State journalism students have joined me this evening at the Columbus City School Board meeting, a mere six hours after we welcomed social media guru Nate Riggs (http://nateriggs.com) to our class for a talk on blogs. Our hour with Nate flew by, as he filled our head with ways […]
