Welcome, Phil

I am adding another link to the blogroll, and it's to yet another person I've never met. However, I feel like I know him, and I know you'll love his blog, so I'm adding him. Welcome, Phil.

Phil has a fabulous photo blog showing the entire region Up There. He just took over my old job at CBC North, but he used to work for Name of Paper Withheld. Never fear: he has not attracted Little Miss Know-it-All's wrath.

I'd been reading his blog for months when he called me at work to line up an interview with one of our staff. (We have a rule that all media requests go through me. This is a bit weird when a reporter has to call Name of Town Withheld to arrange to speak with a person he sees in the northern store every day, but it's still the rule.) I think I scared him a bit, because I really felt like I knew him, but he had no idea who I was. I've TOTALLY been there: wandering through Northern with a sick feeling in your stomach because the prices are ridiculous, having your boots freeze to the ground during a live hit, feeling completely like a fish out of water while you try desperately to find someone who will talk on the record.

I had purposely avoided leaving comments on his blog, because after the hatchet job Name of Paper Withheld did on another blogger here in town, I was not anxious to invite similar scrutiny of my blog. That day, though, I came home and left him a comment that linked back here. I've really enjoyed reading his posts, and I know you will, too.

That's you! Is this the first time you've seen this? I had a lot of fun putting it together.
