Sorry hiatus there for a while. Life just got in the way.
I volunteered for a few nonprofits which needed help to straighten out and stay up and running. The compass that I try to follow is, leave it better than you found it. So, I threw myself into that.
Add in my real job, family life, a social life here and there, and a mother a million miles away dedicated to surviving not only a brain aneurism and multiple coilings to prevent a few others but eventually stage 3 ovarian cancer, and by the end of each day I was just so exhausted I couldn’t do more than think about posting to my blog.
Now that isn’t to say I haven’t been coming up with ideas to post. I have, and they are saved for you. I just needed to free up some more time.
As you can see, most have been quite long posts. That takes time to edit. And as a technical writer and editor, I do it over and over and over again. I really need to just do a few short ones, post them, and edit later.
Recently I was talking to a colleague at an event and my blogs came up in conversation. She told I better start posting and do it regularly, because she gets mad at the ones she is following when there isn’t anything new to read. We laughed and she said she’d be sure to remind me to post.
So, here is the first one and hopefully more will follow. If you are interested in any particular topic, or have advice for me, by all means let me know.
Hope to chat soon. Cheers!
