Driving to a new destination

Last Friday I got some exciting news that I’ve been dying to share with you. I mean, I did a Snoopy dance in my living room in the middle of the afternoon! And I’m pretty sure that I’ve had a perma-smile on my face ever since.

So what is this fabulous news?

Next week I’ll be driving to a new destination. And no, it’s not another trip. My zippy little car and I will be pulling into the employee parking lot at Crain Communications in Detroit where I will be starting my new job.

I’m SO stoked and overjoyed to tell you that as of next week I’ll be the new Community Manager at Autoweek and

Don’t panic!

Detroit Moxie will still be here shining a light on all the cool things going on in Detroit. Yes, there will be a transitional period and I might miss a beat here and there while I get my bearings.

But—I’ll be here! I promise. You, Detroit Moxie and I have been together for over two years and we still have a long way to go.

Many people manage blogs and websites while working full time and I’m sure that I can do the same. I’ve done it before.

You might be hearing from a new voice or two along the way but Detroit Moxie and I are entwined. We’re one.

The new job is a challenge that I’m ready to tackle and I’m delighted to continue on this path in my life.
