10 Years?!!!!! Thank You!!!

10 years ago today I started I/DO/PROMOZ.

It is hard to believe - but here we are!  I am older, greyer and balder... but still love this business!

It began as a way to meet people in the industry and hopefully further my career.

10 years later, I'm with the one of the best companies I've ever worked for(TEGNA) and I am lucky to know so many terrific promo pros out there!

I have contemplated for many months if I should give it up after 10 years. But I'm not quite ready to do that. I'm happy to hear from people who enjoy the blog -- and since there isn't something else quite like it(even after 10 years) -- I've decided to keep on going!

I follow a ton of stations on Youtube and Vimeo - yet always seem to find it difficult to find work to feature. I'll try and update more often!

Some of you send me spots - which is much appreciated! donsjr@hotmail.com is the address.
 
I've never made a dime off the site(never figured that part out... doh!) -- so feel free to send one of the 3 Cs.... cash, check or chotchkies!  I mean, hey, my kids have to eat/play with useless crap!  :)

Thank you to everyone who has supported the site over the years. I really enjoy sharing great work.
