It’s been awhile, hasn’t it?I seem to have created a rhythm of popping in and out of the internets. I eavesdrop on the conversations that are happening, stick my comments in every once in awhile, and go on my merry little way.
I think my blogging died around the same time Google reader did. Or maybe it’s when I started writing professionally.
Helping authors* consumed my days, bleeding into all margins of my life.
And I loved it.
I loved helping people understand how to tell their stories online. Doors opened. Opportunities knocked…and then I left in a daze, switching gears suddenly, and starting on a whole new adventure. New job. New timezone. You know the drill. You could call it a quarter-life crisis or the end of one.
It doesn’t really matter.
In the last year, things have changed.
Instead of obsessing about writing a good story, I’m working on living one.
And I’m going to start sharing the things I’ve been learning along the way. The days of writing about love and dating are mostly over – I reserve the right to relapse every once in awhile. I’m in love and it has a way of seeping into every atom of my existence. The page probably won’t be an exception. It just won’t be a focus.
My theme is finding the extraordinary in the ordinary.
I’ll be tackling other things. Talking about business. Navigating life. Creating margin in your life. The things you navigate as you try to figure out life as an older twenty-something. Mortgages. Tax people. Giving yourself the permission to indulge your long lost introverted self in a world that expects you to be girly, glittery, and oh so outgoing all the time. You know, the glamorous stuff. And yes, I’ll still be working on the Old/Boring/30 List.
It’s a work in progress. Just like my life.
It will be messy at times. Hopefully not as sporadic. My goal is to offer my voice, my experiences, and adventures, in the conversation for the other people in this same life stage.
I can’t wait to begin.
*I still take clients on a case by case basis. Shoot me a line if you need sporadic coaching, writing, or marketing ideas.
