Laura to guest edit The F-Word Blog while I go on holiday!

// 3 November 2008

Just a quick service announcement, folks: Laura is going to be guest editing this blog for two weeks starting on Saturday.

This is because I’ll be in San Francisco from the 8th to the 21st of November (back in time for Reclaim the Night, of course!), visiting family and friends (hence the photo of the mural on the amazing Women’s Building in the Mission District).

In the past I’ve just sort of muddled through if I’ve been travelling or other demands have meant I couldn’t pay close attention to the site. But experience has taught us that it’s probably a good idea to have someone ‘on duty’ (although none of us blog or contribute to this site full time, of course) so that I can take a proper break. I might blog occassionally, but Laura has kindly agreed to step in as ‘guest editor’ this time…

San Fransico? I’m envious, as I’m sure a lot of commenters would be! ;)

I hope you have a lovely time, and I’m sure Laura will be excellent as ‘guest editor’. The F word must require a ton of work, and you all deserve lots of credit for keeping it rolling. Keep up the cool work. :)

Thanks Anne! I’m really grateful for Laura stepping in to help out :-) I’m sure she’ll do great :-)

There are lots of bad things about living over 5,000 miles from your immediate family, but I’m really looking forward to it :-)

Yay, Laura!

Think it’s worth reiterating that posts here are not edited by someone else before publication. Each blogger publishes their own post, they are not approved by the site’s editor as this is simply not possible – we are all volunteers.

Yep, what Catherine said.

Sounds like a great trip. See you at the march!
