I can almost hear you guys from behind your cell phones or laptops (or wherever you read my blog from) from in front of my computer screen…
Where have I been?
Well, as you guys know at this point, along with running this blog, I am also attending classes full time in New York City, studying towards both my undergraduate English degree and my graduate Publishing degree, and I’m also working four days a week to make a little money to pay for said classes and rent. Plus, this year, I’m also determined to finish my first novel, though it’s very much still a work-in-progress. Then, of course, I have to allow for time to do that homework, to travel between work and classes (surprisingly takes up a ton of my life), and maybe find a little time in there to sleep and have a moment to myself. Obviously, you can imagine how all of this can be a little stressful and time-consuming.
Then, throwing Misfit Alexa, one of my biggest passions, into the mix, and things can get a little nuts.
I realize I haven’t posted in over two weeks, and didn’t give you guys any warning for this little hiatus of mine. That’s because it wasn’t planned. I thought I would be able to handle everything, and in hindsight, that was a little stupid of me. I tried to plan ahead as much as I could, finishing all the graphics, doing some promotion… but when you don’t have enough energy or hours in the day, you just can’t do everything you want to be able to do and still provide all of your heart, like I always try to do.
So, here’s the update: we’re just going to have to slow down. One post a week is even a little much for me, let alone two, so at this point, I’m hoping to post at least one Friday a month, and going to try my best to get it up to every other Friday so that I can do a monthly update for you guys and keep you in the loop. We’re still going to have book reviews, we’re still going to have writing and reading tips… it’ll just take a little longer to get them out to you.
I love my readers, I love you guys, every single one of you. I know how patient you’ve been with me (especially those of you who have been around since the beginning!) and I just want to say thank you for sticking with me through this and for waiting for me to get my stuff together. The main reason I started this blog was to communicate with people from all over, and give them content that would help improve their lives, even when I was still a college lifestyle blog.
I’ll probably have the next Misfit Alexa post out by September 30th, which I understand might seem like a while from right now, but that’s because in figuring out that I would need to take a little more time, I’ve been brainstorming about products, courses, and eBooks that I might be releasing this year, which has been so much fun. It’ll probably be touching on keeping sane while writing on the side of college or work, which, as you can see, I’m getting a lot of experience in.
But, if you have any specific topics or themes you want new products to discuss or help you with, please let me know! You can comment below, or contact me on Twitter, Facebook, all the social networks I have along my sidebar… heck, send me a carrier pigeon if you like!
Until next time, my fellow misfits 🙂
