Hi folks! Just to let you know, I’m still working out the kinks with the archived post republishing … there might be some wacky stuff showing up on the blog over the next week or so while I figure out what’s gonna work best. Thanks for your patience!!

Well, friends, the time has come: I need to step back from this blog.
Before I delve into my reasons, I want to take a few moments to express my gratitude and heartfelt thanks. If you are reading this right now, I owe you a debt that can never be fully repaid. I decided to be a writer when I was in third grade, chased that dream through high school, earned a creative writing degree, then found myself in a job market that had no interest my my dreams and dumped me into marketing and communications jobs for more than a decade. I wrote on the side – an album review here, an artist interview there – but never got any traction … until 2007 when I launched this blog. I rediscovered my voice, uncovered an important personal mission, and connected with readers (like you) who believed in me. It was utterly transformative. Continues to be so. Because of this blog and the amazing people who read it, I finally became a writer. A professional writer with a portfolio and clients and books and – perhaps most importantly – renewed confidence in my talents and abilities.
I’ll be taking a few days off to spend with family, and if you celebrate Christmas, hope you’re able to do the same!
If you don’t, here’s hoping you’ve at least got a few days off work.
Enjoy the season!
