A year or so ago I wrote a piece for my Rhetoric class at Old Dominion that I was pretty proud of. It was one of the first times I really felt like I had put together research, writing, and editing to cover a serious topic well. I aced the paper and the class, and later uploaded the paper to helium.com to see if anyone else wanted to read it.
Months pass, and then suddenly this morning I get an email from the content director of the site telling me that my essay is the featured article on the site’s main page. They rotate the articles every day or so, so if you want to read it, head on over to the main page at Helium. If you happen to read this after they’ve already rotated articles, I also have the permanent page linked in my blogroll.
Thanks for your support!
