I am pleased to announce that View from a Nobody has been picked up by the Toronto Sun. I was formally approached a couple of weeks ago by the Toronto Sun to do a monthly column in their Sunday edition, on a three month trial basis. I am also getting paid a small amount for my contributions. Imagine that, someone actually paying me to write my nonsense.
Here is how this exciting turn of events happened. During February’s cold snap I was asked by a friend to help a friend of his with a frozen plumbing issue at a weekend ski chalet close to Blue Mountain. That friend happened to be Wendy Metcalfe the editor of the Toronto Sun. After I finished sorting out the plumbing issue, I sat down with Wendy and a few of her friends and my buddy for a little social time. The subject of blogging came up as part of the conversation, she read some of my stuff, liked it and the rest is history as they say.
Don’t panic loyal readers this will not affect what I do here but you will get to read the occasional post by me on a grander scale. I have to write about a broader scope of political issues ranging from Premier Windbag to “Hair Apparent” Justin Trudeau. Unfortunately I don’t get to write about local Collingwood issues in this new gig with the one exception of the conclusion of a certain OPP investigation.
My first column is this coming Sunday 5th April.
