My name is Tracey and I’m an upstate NY native. One of my New Year’s resolutions for 2011 was to get back in the writing game. I went to college to become a journalist…and well that didn’t quite happen. My career path has gone in a totally different direction…I actually work in the medical field and in retail. But over the last few years I have slowly gone back into the communication field…starting with doing photography of sporting events locally when I finally got a digital camera, then using my Twitter account to live tweet hockey when I got my BlackBerry in October. I probably won’t use this as a way to get a job back in the field (I’m actually pretty satisfied with a 9 to 5 and beyond schedule by this point in my life), just as a side interest.
So what will I talk about with this newfound blog? A variety of things. Right now I’m smack in the middle of hockey season. I cover the Albany Devils (AHL hockey) with my Twitter feed (@tel915 is my handle…I could use some new followers…) and also do photos on my Facebook (when the stupid photo uploader actually decides to work) and on Webshots. I also live for road trips, so maybe some city reviews of where I go for games. Once spring/summer roll around, it’s all about the Yankees and the Tri-City Valleycats (your 2010 NY Penn League champs whoohoo!). Maybe throw in some retail hell stories (and believe me I have a lot of those), and some cat tales…I have 2 cats, Sascha (10, black/white female) and Riley (5, orange/white male), who I adore but they drive me nuts sometimes.
Okay introductions over with…trust me you’ll learn more as I go on…
