New Job - First Week Recap

by - July 08, 2018

Week one of my new job as regional publisher of Wiregrass Magazine is in the books, and it was nothing like I expected it would be. On day two of this adventure, our air conditioner died. Luckily it's still under warranty but that means we're having to wait to get it fixed. So instead of staying in a sweltering house, we checked into the lodge at Lake Walter F. George for a few days. Other than the 4th of July, I spent most of the day working in the room (with occasional glances at the water). Early evenings were spent with family taking boat rides and grilling out.

So what did I do my first week? Mostly I gathered information for our after-school guide and community calendar. I emailed some of my old TV contacts, but most of them were out of town for the holiday. Next week will be busier in terms of contacting people about after-school programs and advertising, and I've still got lots of info gathering to do. Oh, and it may be another week before I can comfortably get back into my office (it's pushing 100 degrees up there). In the meantime, I'll be working from my in-laws' kitchen table, when I'm not out meeting people and telling them about the magazine.
