Tools and Toys

A couple days ago, Shawn Blanc emailed me out of the blue to ask if I'd like to become the third writer for his other popular site Tools and Toys, alongside himself and Stephen Hackett.

I've been a big fan of both of these guys' work for quite some time now, so needless to say I jumped at the chance to work with them. I'm honestly a little amazed that I would even be given such an opportunity. I mean, they're both extremely nice people and all but I can't help but feel a certain level of anxiety about meeting their standards. Still, I'm really looking forward to the work and I'm already learning a lot about the way I write.

Just to be clear, I don't have a permanent position there just yet. This is simply a trial period, and if a month from now Shawn still thinks I'm a good fit for the site, then I'll get to stick around. My first post went live today, if you want to check it out.
