Offered the job!

In case you don't follow me on Twitter or Facebook, here's the news: I was offered the history professor job yesterday afternoon. I'm planning to accept it, but I'm still in negotiations, so I'm not going to blog any more about it right now.

I am so thrilled!

UPDATE:

Accepted the offer! (I was instructed by my new department chair to update this blog posthaste. Ha!)

I've so enjoyed reading your thoughts as you conducted this job search..and will continue to as you take up the new role. Lucky students, lucky colleagues to get you, and lucky us out here who get to share in your learning.

WOW! an update about your acceptance "mandated" by your new dept. chair? So they know about the blog? (really ignorant question, I haven't been reading, you know).

Thanks for your good wishes on K's behalf. I had to LOL about the offer to the gods :-).
