Sarah Hartley on her blog today writes about leaving the Manchester Evening News after nearly eight years.
She says: "This morning, for the first time in 20 years, I woke up without having a regional newsroom to go to.
"I don’t ‘belong’ to a newspaper, I’m not ‘from’ anywhere, because yesterday, in a scene being played out up and down the country, I packed my desk, handed back my laptop and said my goodbyes.
"It prompts an indescribably strange set of emotions - on the one hand I have a very exciting project lined up (more to come on that in future posts) but almost eight years at the MEN means there’s a lot to leave behind too."
