In addition to the blog, I also write and send out a weekly column to the state’s print publications. The Grand Forks Herald picks up a column now and then. The High Plains Reader in Fargo runs one every week. A few of the small-town weeklies around the state run the columns now and then as well.

I’m happy to announce that the Minot Daily News will also be running my column weekly on Wednesdays. Which makes me pretty happy because a) it’s my hometown newspaper and b) the first job I ever had was delivering copies of the Minot Daily early in the morning, seven days a week. Something I did well into high school.

Anyway, for you readers in the Minot area, my first column is in today’s newspaper. You can also read it online here.

If anyone out there would like to publish my columns in a publication, email me at
