After I asked about bringing on a straight contributor to TBP, the majority of Projectors liked the idea. We've run a few guest posts now from some folks we were considering and the Ed Team has made our decisions. *drumroll*
Please welcome Don Davis and Betty Greene Salwack to the Bilerico Project!
Don Davis is a complex recipe. In a large bowl, add 3 parts curiosity, 1 part "I Wish I Was Sam Clemens", 3 parts geek, 2 parts failed stand-up comic, a dash of photographer, a pinch of itinerant ne'er do well...and fill the bowl the rest of the way with cynic. You can see even more stories at his home blog, "advice from a fake consultant." Don recently guest posted a fascinating history of Gladys Bentley, an African-American trans entertainer in the 20s and 30s.
Betty Greene Salwak is a transplanted Floridian living in Indiana with her husband of 30 years and their two children. She began her professional life as a Language Arts teacher, became a sales trainer during her corporate period, and was plucked from the congregation of her church to write a five-year curriculum for the elementary Sunday School. Betty is a long-time Bilerico reader and commented under the username "Birdie." She recently guest posted about her fight against conservative Christianity. Betty will also be blogging on Bilerico-Indiana.
Please join me in welcoming these two shining lights to the Project.
