The big news this week is, well, the news! I'm referring to the brand new online news site, The Ocracoke Current which went active yesterday. This is the brainchild of my wife Sundae Horn and her partner in crime, Jenny Scarborough. These two industrious young women have been talking about doing something like this ever since they gave up collaborating on the Ocracoke Observer nearly a decade ago. When they called in the assistance of internet expert Carol Pahl a couple of weeks ago it began to appear that the idea was more than just talk. And then, early yesterday morning, voila!
They've dragged me aboard to contribute a regular weekly column entitled "The Shipping News." Yeah, I know what you're thinking: "They think Rob's going to make 'regular weekly' posts? In their dreams!" So, as you can understand, I'll probably be pretty busy in the coming weeks and may not be able to keep up this blog with the dependable regularity you've come to expect. Just kidding!
Actually, I think the girls have done a terrific job so far (if I say so myself). But I hope that, rather than take my word for it, you'll check it out for yourselves: www.ocracokecurrent.com.
If you like it, please spread the word! Thanks.
