This past Wednesday the local Alpharetta Neighbor published a profile of four local bloggers and they were kind enough to include me in the article. Over the years I have had my picture in newspapers a few times and every once in a while a local paper has quoted me on an issue. But this was the first time I had ever been the subject of an article and I want to thank the Neighbor for making it a wonderful experience.
The author of the article, Joan Durbin, has been writing for the Neighbor for as long as I can remember and now I know why she has been so successful. Ms. Durbin was incredibly kind to me and the other bloggers she wrote about. I’d also like to give a shout out to the Neighbor photographer, Erin (I hope I remember that right), for not taking a picture of me in my messy office. My heartfelt thanks go out to both of these ladies for helping bring GA Jim to an audience that may never have heard of me otherwise.
When I first started this blog 2 years ago it was partially because I couldn’t find any other local blogs providing content for Alpharetta and North Fulton County so it is great to see that there are others out there doing their thing. If you haven’t read the article about the local blogs please go check them out at the Neighbor here. And if you want to know more about my fellow bloggers you can check Lee out at rootsinalpharetta.com , Bob at liveinalpharetta.com , and Jennifer at northsidefood.blogspot.com
