Announcing "Teatime with Angela," my Coweta Shopper tea column!
Today is an exciting day for me because I'm now officially a tea columnist! Not long ago, I ran into Joe Williams, publisher of The Coweta Shopper, at a Chamber event. He asked if I would consider writing for his publication, which is a free advertising publication that also includes some feature articles, and he said he particularly wanted something that would appeal to women readers. He asked if I'd come talk to him, we set up a meeting, and soon the idea for "Teatime with Angela" became a reality. The first issue will be landing in Coweta County mailboxes today, and I'm so pleased someone has actually hired me to "talk tea" and hopefully meet even more tea lovers—because The Coweta Shopper gets mailed to 48,000 homes each month!
For my first topic, I chose to discuss iced tea since that seemed especially fitting for Georgia in the summertime. (Some of you may even recognize the vintage iced tea pitcher and glasses that appear in the teaser photo on the front page and with the column itself.) I don't think I'll have any problem coming up with 12 topics a year, and my biggest challenge will be condensing all I have to say about tea into a single column per month!
Since The Coweta Shopper has an e-edition posted online, that means you don't have to live here to read the column. Just go here to read the column online. And please keep your fingers crossed for me, because I definitely want to live up to the expectations of Coweta County's tea fans!
