Well, I'm on the road again. Last month, I made a major career move. I accepted a job as a reporter at Stateline, a news service out of The Pew Charitable Trusts in Washington, D.C.
I started a few weeks ago. I'll be covering trends in demographics and state policy across the U.S. Yes, meaning I went from covering one state to 50, and one county to 3,000. It's a jump, but I got this. I'll also be helping coordinate social media.
You can read more about Stateline here. I haven't quite got the elevator pitch down just yet, but basically we research state policy and write about what lawmakers are doing (and aren't doing). Our goal is to better inform, which perhaps will lead to better policy (Stateline is a project in Pew's government performance division.). You'll be able to read my stories on www.stateline.org, but that may not be where most people will read them. Pew partners with major news outlets, offering our stories for free. So, hopefully one day soon, you'll be reading my stuff from a national media outlet.
More on my new adventure, TK!
