Well, that was fast. My stint with the Arizona Guardian, the startup website covering politics and news from the state Capitol, has come to a end sooner than any of us expected.
We parted ways amicably last week, about a month and a half into my tenure there. In that time, I wrote a few good stories, offered some ideas on technology/social media and got to work with some seriously talented journalists.
While I won’t bore anyone with the details of my departure, I will say that I have great respect for the Guardian and the big impact it has had on Arizona politics given its newcomer status. I wish everyone there the best of luck moving forward.
For now, I intend to return to freelancing and exploring other journalistic opportunities. You may have noticed I also came back to Heat City today with a story about Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s massive campaign spending. You can expect to see more stories here in the immediate future.
Finally, and this really can’t be said often enough: Thank you to all my readers and fans for your constant and continued support. You make the work worth doing.
