(Newser) – Have a question for Amanda Knox? Now's a good time to ask. The 32-year-old Seattle native is getting her own advice column in the weekly newspaper Westside Seattle, which the Guardian reports is published by family of her husband. Already listed as a contributing writer and photographer with the paper, Knox will answer reader questions "about life, love, suffering, and meaning," according to a Monday editor's note, which appears to have been taken down. It noted four years in an Italian prison "for a murder she didn't commit" gave Knox "a unique perspective on life," per the Seattle Times.

Knox previously wrote for Westside Seattle on a number of topics, including her time installing a new mailbox, under the heading "Amanda's View." Knox has also written for publications including the Los Angeles Times. Still, some weren't too keen on the idea of a regular column. Comments on Facebook prompted a response from the paper's director of new media. Patrick Robinson said Knox wouldn't be paid for the "Ask Amanda Knox" column but had "chosen to use her life experience in a positive way," per the Guardian. His relationship to Knox's husband, Christopher Robinson, isn't clear. (Read more Amanda Knox stories.)
