Today was my last day as an associate editor at The Fresno Bee. For the past 19 years, I’ve worked for The McClatchy Company, in various writing and editing jobs. It’s the only newspaper I ever worked for. Now that chapter is over and it’s time to move on to something new. As much as I’ve loved being a journalist, I suspect that ending this job ends my days as a professional journalist.
It doesn’t end my days as a writer though. That’s always going to be a big part of who I am. So now I’m here.
