Congratulations Mr. President!

I am so proud! This is the most momentous happy occasion that has taken place in my lifetime. There have been momentous unhappy occasions, such as 9/11 and the death of Princess Diana, but this is a positive moment that will change me forever.

I don’t know about you but I am numb. I feel overwhelmed and in a state of shock over having helped create such a historic event. And to be watching CNN when they were the first to declare Barack Obama president-elect is a moment I will never forget.

What was even more amazing was the extent to which the world was watching. They said on the news that 78 countries were watching. I spoke to friends in Australia and Austria and their entire countries were on the edge of their seats. My husband spoke to a friend in France who couldn't wait to hear the news and our choir director's family in Norway was watching excitedly.

I am thrilled and proud, but also a little bit numb at the enormity of this event and the fact that I played a role in it. My husband says that Barack Obama was not born, he was sent. I think he is right.

Now I can't wait for January 20th to see him sworn into office!

I know times are tough right now and some of you are laying off full-time employees. This may leave you in a position of needing to outsource more of your content needs to freelancers, and I just want to ask you to consider me when you're looking to hire from the outside.

I can help you with white papers and case studies; I can ghost-write articles that get your clients' bylines; I've written research reports, web site content and press and collateral materials.

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any content projects you need help with. You can reach me at 203-854-1055 or Thanks.
