News that Yahoo Voices is shuttering came as a shock. I’ve written hundreds of articles for this site since 2012 on topical and not-so-topical subjects and enjoyed being assigned a finance beat because I’m no economics whiz. Amassing 230,000 hits during my Yahoo association has been no small accomplishment. Most of my articles will vaporize when administrators pull the plug on July 30th. There’s so much change in my life right now that I had a mini-breakdown when the Yahoo news broke, but time has come to put on my big girl panties and move on to the next chapter.
