After over four years of blogging here at DailyKos and eight months of writing for the Washington Post's Capital Weather Gang, I'm beyond thrilled to announce that that I've been brought on by Gawker Media as the writer for their new weather website called "The Vane."

The Vane is going to cover everything from the weather itself to the business of weather. A prime example would be the TWC vs. DirecTV feud, as well as the snow/ice storm that hit yesterday and today.

The first two posts on the site are "Massive Storm Destroys Washington D.C. With Three Whole Inches of Snow" and "Philly News Reporter Gets Clobbered by Snowplow."

I am deeply thankful to all of you who have supported me and helped me over the last couple of years. I'm not going anywhere. In addition to writing for The Vane, I'm still going to write and comment here at DailyKos until Markos gets sick of me. I am sticking to the weather...just in more places now.

Make sure to add The Vane to your bookmarks and visit often.

You can also follow me on Facebook and Twitter, and if you stay away from social media sites like poison, I'll always see you within the confines of the orange.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
