I've also been over here: I just started stringing for the local newspaper, and some of my photos were printed on Tuesday. If you flip through the "Flash Jr" gallery, you'll see a few of them. Nothing earth-shattering, I assure you. But it's getting my name out there. (Tonight I photographed a pole-dancing class. THAT was fun and now I kinda sorta want to try it.)
I'll try to catch up soon, I promise.
