2011 isn't the only thing coming to a close for me. I've published my final columns with the Toronto Star, as of last Monday's Motherlode, and the Wheels column that's up today. It's been a blast - I couldn't have taken a better step in my career then spending the past 5 years there.
Soooooooooo. Where to find me? The Globe and Mail! I'm officially on board the Drive section as of January 1. Going national is a great move and terrific opportunity. My first column will run January 6th - the auto section runs on Fridays. You're gonna have to get used to getting your car fix a day early!
Motherlode will live on with the Hamilton Spectator, and on my site, of course. You'll be able to keep finding all my stuff here, but the Globe has lovely glossy printing.
2011 has been a crazy year, in more ways than one. Yeah, that one too. It's been wonderful and difficult, enlightening and raw. I wouldn't trade the learning for anything, but I'm looking forward to 2012; hope you'll stay put for the ride.
