I don’t know how you daily bloggers do it, man. I promise everyone; I’m not dead, but when blogging isn’t your full-time gig, life does tend to get in your way in one form or another!
Whenever you’re gearing to get ready for a vacation, Murphy’s Law of the 9 to 5 responds by ramping up everything that your job expects of you all at the same time — and when you finally do get to head out wherever you’re going, you breathe a sigh of relief, despite the fact that it’s all going to be there waiting for you upon your eventual return.
But enough of that — 8 hours of the day is already spent fussing and fretting over the things contributing to my taxable income; let’s talk about the other things going on.
- The webcomic: Having learned from the initial try I made at running a webcomic, I’m letting WordPress shoulder the work this time. I’ve got the barebones elements for my webcomic site put together, but so far I’ve only migrated all of my old comics from my old website. I’ll share some of the sketches with you in the coming days (maybe that’ll make for some good eye candy while I’m out and about 13,000 km away…), but getting back in the habit of drawing a regular comic is going to be a feat on its own!
- The project: I’ve chosen which of my business ideas to pursue first, and it’s gonna be a doozy! I’ve already started assembling a team and hope that we can start putting the building blocks together shortly after my return. I’m excited about the possibilities!
- Guest blogging: Who are we without our friends? I’m fortunate enough to have some friends who trust my words enough to let me write guest posts for them; first I’m almost done writing the long-awaited post I’ve been doing for Simone (and when I say long-awaited, I mean that I’ve promised to write it for her forever and a day now), and I had a chat with CamMi Pham about some stuff we could work on back at Social Media Week — so you’ll be seeing more of me! (Whether you like it or not.)
- Causes: But even if I’m not doing something myself, I still follow others who are, like Mr. Mike Layton who’s raising money for prostate cancer research (for obvious reasons), or the KONY2012 initiative, rife with controversy, but I’ll go over that in further detail later
So that’s what’s up. More to tell in the coming weeks, but in case you were hoping for something horribly amusing in today’s post, this link had me cracking up:
Right. Time to call it a wrap.
