Welcome to the New Reality Online!

Welcome to my new website — the official website for M.C. Coolidge! This new site is one-stop shopping for all things MC — by that I mean, it’s a place where I can let folks know about my public relations business, my editing services, my writing, availability as a public speaker, website design and content services, and of course … share my “Reality Online” blog.

Wow! It’s hard to believe that just slightly over three years ago — August 2008 — I launched MC’s Reality Online blog. I had no idea whether anyone would visit my blog, much less come back for a second visit, much less care about what I had to say if it wasn’t in black and white on a printed page.

I’m grateful — so very grateful — to report that not only did many of you visit, but you came back again and again to see what I was yakking about it and share your own thoughts in the comments section. Many of you forwarded blog postings or shared my blog url with others … helping me grow the site from roughly 2,000 “unique visitors” in 2008 to over 43,000 (and counting) unique visitors in 2011.

Along the way, my readers helped me pick up “Best of the Suncoast” awards from 2007 through 2010, and twice landed me on Sarasota Magazine’s “Best of Sarasota” listing.

I started MC Reality Online because I’d moved on from the Pelican Press, which had sought to limit the scope of what I could write about in terms of national issues like the election, race, etc.

The support and loyalty of so many of my online readers gave me the encouragement to continue to push for a paid, print column and finally, in late 2010 — the Sarasota Herald-Tribune gave me a regular gig: my Sense and the City column, each Thursday in the TICKET section.

I’m still committed to keeping my “reality online” presence — though, obviously, I haven’t been posting as frequently as in days of old. If I had my way, I would write on my blog every day, but unfortunately cat chow must be purchased … so I’ve got to focus on the work that brings in the kibbles. Still, I try to find time in between everything else to sneak back to my computer as regularly as possible and post a “reality” blog worthy of your blogospheric attention. I hope to do that even more going forward.

I can’t thank you enough — everyone who’s clicked through the old MC Reality Online site and who now has taken the time to visit this new site. I invite you to — and hope very much that you will — come back and visit, or keep in touch through Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIN, and RSS.
