Daily readers may have noticed that I’ve skipped a few days lately, instead of my regular five-posts-a-week-like-clockwork. I don’t take my lovely readers for granted and I feel I owe a bit of an explanation.
I have been trying my hardest to keep up, but with most of my time taken up by my business Akimbo (including a huge website redesign and rebrand coming very soon!), there has been very little time left for writing posts, let alone doing the blog-worthy projects in the first place! I love love love writing Atypical Type A for you and it pains me greatly that I’ve not been able to give it the attention it needs. I would rather skip a day than just slap up a quick post just for the sake of ticking it off. You deserve better than that.
While my workload has increased I’m actually trying to cut down on my working hours because it was getting a bit out of control and unhealthy. I’m a bit of a workaholic so it’s hard for me to say ‘enough’ at the end of the day and be happy (or at least okay) with leaving things un-done. I know I need to do it though – finding that elusive work/life balance – because my projects, passions, relationships and experiences fuel not only my personal happiness and sanity but also my work.
It’s not all doom and gloom though! I am working on some sweet-as developments that will bring Atypical Type A into its next phase and I could not be more excited. It’s going to be a lot of work so I am looking at bringing in some writing help and having plenty of reader submissions and guest posts. Yahoo! That way I’ll be able to keep the regular quality content up and I can focus my attention more on tutorials and other projects. The content topics will remain the same, but there’ll be some shiny new columns and awesome features to take Atypical Type A from just a blog to a full resource. Oh and did I mention a full site redesign?!
I am so pumped about this next stage of Atypical Type A and cannot wait to reveal what I have in store for you guys! Til then, please bear with me while I’m busy working on everything behind the scenes.
Speaking of ‘what’s next’ for Atypical Type A, I have a ton of ideas but none of it is set in stone so if there’s anything you’d like to see more of, please leave your suggestions in the comments!
