    Just figured I'd help people out by sharing them here. I'm sure plenty of folks are interested. Plus, if these were things I was actually thinking about pursuing, wouldn't it be counterproductive, statistically speaking, to post them here? I'm ecstatic about my new gig and don't have a desire to go elsewhere.

    BostonGlobe.com is the paywall, correct? Wasn't it supposed to launch on January 1?

    Because nobody else would ever think to post a Boston Globe job ad on SportsJournalists.com...

    Well someone has to, might as well be him. And at time I've seen jobs take a little extra time to get here. Maybe like two weeks from jjobs to the board, but in some instances it could make a difference.

    Think a role like this in an expensive city approaches six figures?

    Really? This is for a web producer position. I doubt anyone here will get more than $50-55K if that, although I don't know what scale is there.

    50-55 can get you a decent apartment in Southie, Somerville, Cambridge, West Roxbury, et al, gentrification be damned

    You can find a nice place right by St. Margaret's for that price, probably, and in theory you could walk to work. But for someone to even suggest this would be a six-figure job is ridiculous.
