Hey guys. I have an announcement. It won't be a long one, don't worry. Not like when they tell you at a seminar or at church or something that they have "brief announcements" that then go on for 30 minutes. This is like an actual brief announcement. But then again, it's me, and I ramble. So godspeed.
The announcement is this: starting next week I will post just once a week here. [I know this news will rock you to your core, so I give you permission to go home early today if you need to. I'm sure your boss will understand.]
(For those of you who don't anxiously await my words in your inbox or RSS reader every week (aka probably most of you), I typically post twice, just to give you some perspective.)
I'm reassessing my goals for this site as well as my blogging, and I think this makes the most sense for me, considering how much time I'm spending doing it vs. how much tangible value I'm gaining from it. Not to say blogging isn't valuable. It is, and I very much enjoy it. I feel like I've grown a lot as a writer and I've actually made some real life friends because of it. But additionally I'm trying to do some not-as-public work (i.e. freelancing, fiction work-in-progress) on top of my day job and blogging, and I'm running out of lunch hours, free evening hours, and (newly added) 6ams to squeeze in all that I want to work on.
SO all that to say, keep checking back for weekly posts here, and I hope that in redirecting the time I'd normally spend writing a second post, I will have some other projects to share with you in the not-too-distant future. Meanwhile I will also still be contributing over at the (newly remodeled) Xtra Bacon, so be sure to subscribe to the podcast and RSS feed there as well.
SIDEBAR PLUG: If you or anyone you know is in need of a writer or editor for a project or on an ongoing basis, let me know! I'd love to see if I could help out. (Including, but not limited to: articles, bios, blog posts, website copy, editing ebooks or any of the aforementioned projects, captioning your Instagram photos for you...I'm your girl.)
Since you came all the way to my blog today and all you got was this rotten announcement, here is a gif of some bunnies in cups:
SIDEBAR comments question: What show are you most excited to see come back in the fall? Or what new show are you excited to try out? I'll go first: I've been rewatching the first season of New Girl on Netflix and I cannot wait for it to return!
