One of the best things about being a journalist is receiving (positive) feedback from those you have written about.
For my story about a local roller derby league, which can be found here, the two women I wrote about were just so grateful and gracious (especially with the flood of e-mails I was sending them). Hearing that they liked my coverage of their sport, something that is a very key part of their lives, was just amazing.
On top of that, one of the editors I wrote for this past quarter offered to let me freelance for her paper. So that is pretty damn cool.
Things are going well.
