I never wanted to have my own blog.
Ever since I got my first professional writing job as a newspaper reporter in 2003, my desire to write for fun has decreased. Graduate school papers were a particular challenge because I’d be writing for a living all day and the last thing I wanted to do on nights and weekends was write some more.
But I got through it and since I began handling publicity for the university I work for as well as a few freelance clients, I realized I missed writing.
That’s why this feels like a new beginning– a “real” blog by Gina Vergel. It took baby steps. I’m a social media (Twitter, Facebook) fanatic and then I opened a Tumblr. I won’t limit what I share on here to one topic. I like crime news, politics, sports, music, fitness, etc. And I like humor.
So sit back, enjoy the show and feel free to give me feedback!
