Blog Hiatus

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about how I spend my time because there just never seems to be enough of it.  Although I enjoy writing on this little blog, I’ve come to the conclusion that I need to put energy into other projects for a while.

Thank you so much for reading, and for your comments (especially MJ, my star commenter). There’s a good chance I’ll be back at some point.

Scheduling Failure

I was supposed to have a post up today but had a family emergency yesterday and the day before. Everything’s completely OK now except for my poor neglected blog. See you Monday!

That Hiatus That Happened

Um, hi!

A couple of you have wondered what on Earth happened. Well, the second half of December was completely insane but absolutely wonderful. Then I took a one-month intensive TEFL certification course. Now it’s February. Not very exciting, but that’s what happened.

This week I’ll be finishing up my NP Career and Money series. Beyond that, we’ll see. I really enjoy blogging. However, it’s not in my top five priorities, so I don’t always give it the attention it needs.

I’m reevaluating my writing topics, my posting schedule, and whether I should keep blogging at all. In the meantime, enjoy the rest of the series starting tomorrow. 🙂

In Case You Were Wondering

I thought I should probably acknowledge the fact that I just randomly didn’t post for something like two weeks.

The short answer is that everything’s fine. The slightly longer answer is that my job and my personal life were both particularly engrossing during that time and there wasn’t room to blog too.

I seriously considered whether to keep the blog at all. For now, my answer is yes. It’s my little space to write regularly and think out loud. I enjoy it and I think it’s good for me. So it stays.

However, I’m going to move to two posts per week: Mondays and Wednesdays. I hope to move back up to three at some point in the future.

That’s it for now. Enjoy the rest of the week!

Posting Schedule!

I think it’s time I add a little bit of method to my posting madness.  Trent says so.

Starting now, I will be posting once every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.

I don’t know how this will work with future Five-Week Courses, or how vacations will fit in, or if the timing structure will cause me to add some content structure. We’ll see how it develops.

Which 5 Weeks?

A major downfall of my 5WC has been that it ignored the rhythm of my life.  I started it without regard to the monthly visits I have with my long-distance boyfriend.  This was silly of me.  I basically set myself up to fail.

The great news for me is that he’ll be visiting in just a couple of days.  The good news for my self-directed professional development is that I’m looking to change the 5WC structure starting when he goes back home.

So, I’ll be back late next week with some proposed changes.
