Week 2, day 2
Articles published today:
My first piece of the day, which is my second full day so far, was one based on two tweets from Canadian politicians (Justin Trudeau and Harjit Sajjan) calling on Canadians to send birthday cards to a Canadian veteran who is turning 100 years old on January 31st. This was a really fun piece to write because of the research I had to do about it, which is something I really like to do in general. I spent a good part of the morning digging around for some background information about veteran Ed Stafford's life, and when it was published, Ty told me I could tick off all Canadian cities on this article because this was a national piece (my first one!). I got a bit excited about this, I've seen a bit what the numbers are for Montreal, but Vancouver, where the Daily Hive was founded, and Toronto have much larger audiences.
The next one was an update of the list of McDonald's locations where an employee tested positive for the virus, which was a pretty standard/simple assignment.
My third article was one that I had been working on slowly last week when I had a bit of time: it's a piece about Chinese restaurants to order from during the pandemic. It was also pretty fun working on this because I know and love so many Chinese restaurants in the city that I'm happy I can share them and give them a bit more visibility.
