Sklar Jumps From Fishbowl

Everything does move faster in blogland: Last Wednesday, Fishbowl NY editor Rachel Sklar posted an item marking the media blog’s one-year anniversary. “[I]it’s been a very good year,” she wrote. “Thanks to all of you and here’s to many more!”

That night, Sklar gave notice she would be leaving Jan. 31 to pursue a freelance career. “I’ll be returning to the wild and wonderful world of freelancing and seeing daylight,” Sklar wrote via e-mail. “Can’t wait.”

Sklar, an unusually sunny voice in the media-blog world, had been with Fishbowl NY 10 months. Founding editor Elizabeth Spiers left Nov. 1 of last year, to work on a novel.
