I'm All Over the Internet, But a Mention in an Honest-to-God Print Newspaper Gives Me Chills

It looks just like any other Washington Times page, doesn't it?

But wait! Upon closer study you may notice that my byline is there. In an ad. In a major newspaper. That's right. I'm being advertised right under a giant map of the United States. In fact, my little square is bigger than the map of the United States. I think that means something.

That's not Jack, by the way.

Have you checked out my Autism Unexpected column in the Washington Times Communities? (There are some other really incredible writers there too.)

Also, it looks like it's going to get warmer here over the weekend.

  2. Very cool! And not just any old newspaper, either. And not just a tiny little ad. Impressive.

  7. Well, of COURSE your square is bigger. Jack is far more important than some map of some weirdo country!

    Or it means you super-rock as a writer. Whichever.

  9. Chills... in a good way, right?

    I have read your column at the paper's website many times and I consider that the "grownup" version of your online-ness. I hope you take it as a compliment when I say I think I like the "gerbilly" version better. Yes, much.
