As you read through this paper, I will be on my way to Lake Charles, Louisiana to celebrate my aunt’s birthday. That’s right, I am taking four and a half days off work and using the days to de-stress and prepare for the next seven months of classes, all while mentally preparing myself to come back to the job, ready to do whatever I can to bring in more readers.
I was recently told by several people that they really enjoy my writing style and thoroughly enjoy the articles I read. This was a welcomed compliment, because, as I’m sure many of you will agree, it is always nice to be appreciated for the work you do. And I want to continue producing material that is enjoyable to read. You, our readers, are the driving force behind our paper. Without you, I wouldn’t be able to do a job I love. So I would like to express my appreciation to all of you, for giving this 24-year-old the ability to carry out her dreams.
And I’d love to continue hearing from you! If you ever have any ideas for stories or would like to have your story or talents in our paper, please write to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. The heading on our paper says we are a community paper and we encourage everyone to submit their story ideas. Remember: the success of this paper will be a team effort between you and us.
