About the Site

This website (formerly known as “The (r)ave”) began in January of 2010 as a class assignment. Averie MacDonald, a wide-eyed, ambitious journalism student, challenged herself to keep up a (somewhat journalistic) blog for a full semester without a) giving up, or b) accidentally saying something completely inappropriate. The semester was a great success!

Since then, averiemac.com has become Averie’s professional website. In the Portfolio section, you’ll find links to Averie’s best print, video and radio content. On the blog, you’ll get Averie’s personal musings on journalism, education, media, and basically whatever else she finds interesting!

The site is a career chronicle, and new chapters are being added all the time.
