When I was a general-interest features editor at the newspaper, I created and edited an every-day-of-the-year column called Bulletin Board — in which readers offered stories and commentary on everything under the sun (except politics). It became a much-loved daily conversation that continues to this day, on my blog (BBonward.com) and in the Sunday Pioneer Press.
I also edited four books of Bulletin Board stories, all published by Andrews & McMeel: “The Best of Bulletin Board: Of Simple Pleasures, Cute Kids, Dumb Customers, Kind Strangers, and Other Scenes From the Human Comedy”; “The Simple Pleasures: A Bulletin Board Collection”; “WARNING! Cute Kid Stories Ahead!”; and “Life As We Know It: Extraordinary Stories From Ordinary People (The Best of Bulletin Board Vol. 2).”
