That’s right, everyone – I’m back.
No, the strike is not over. And the first person to call me a scab or use the phrase “crossing the picket line” gets hit with a lawn chair. (Just kidding! Or am I?)
Having this blog on strike no longer serves its intended purpose. I set out to bring attention to the WGA strike, and I feel I have done that as much as my personal strike can do. Now it’s time to get back to the keyboard and bring attention the opposite way.
This was not an easy decision, and I consulted a lot of friends for their opinion before making my choice. I felt in my gut that it was time to come back, and after some banter, the unanimous decision from my friends was that they would also like to see me return.
Not to mention, I’ve got to explain that huge drop in my net worth soon, or some of you readers are just going to start freaking out.
I will be doing some strike related articles, in as much as I can tie them to personal finance. So, be ready for things like “How to Help the Writers Without Spending a Dime.”
I have to say… it feels good to be back.
If you want to write about strikes, I recommend reading up on the “dollar auction.” You might try Moral Calculations by LÃ¡szlÃ³ MÃ©rÅ‘

Yay! Welcome back!
I think the strike has already accomplished what it really needed to do: accelerate the return of American Gladiators. So thank you for helping with that, Stephanie!
Welcome back! Maybe Letterman hired you back 😉
Yay! Glad you’re back!
Happy New Year and I’m glad you’re finally back!! I liked reading the other blogs, but it’s good to have yours back cause you’re around my age.
Thanks everyone! I’m glad to be back! 🙂
@Don: I read a bit of Moral Calculations, and it seems really interesting and relevant to the strike (who knew?). Unfortunately, Google Books has random pages that are missing, pages which are necessary for understanding. So I’ll have to hold off finishing until I can get a hard copy of the book. But thank you for bringing it to my attention!

My husband is obsessed with the strike! He follows all the news and gives me daily updates on what is going on and all that jazz. I think he feels some how connected because we would someday like to live in sunny California! He also thinks the “CBS Your Nut” campaign is too awesome. We love it when people stand up for themselves and what they believe! Yeah writers! Keep fighting!!!!
