  1. Hilarious. You know what got me my job? Tinkering with SEO/social media a bit.

    Well, that, along with the whole journalism bit. I like to think I wasn’t half bad…

  2. Tinkering is the one activity that keeps the world moving forward. So tinker to your hearts delight. Now just tinker to find a way to keep newspapers relevant!
