State of the Blog: Thank You, and Goodnight
Jan 28, 2016
Thank you to everyone who donated to Nyachom’s effort to raise tuition money. Thanks to your donations, shares, and suggestions she reached her fundraising goal and will be able to pay off her fall tuition. Additionally, some very thoughtful readers referred her to an organization called PEO, which has nominated her for one of their sponsorship programs.
I can’t tell you how much it means to me that so many of you donated.
I spent 2.5 hours tonight on a post about how to wear sleeveless dresses in the winter without freezing to death, but I was really unhappy with how it turned out. One of my goals for this year, was to revive the content that made this blog so much fun to write — Two Ways, Style Translator, Work Wednesdays, etc.. But blogging three posts per day, while working two jobs and taking 17 credits has been incredibly difficult, and it shows in how much the content has changed since summer 2014.
Finding the time to write better posts is a challenge. But I’m hoping some more pre-planning on my part, I can bring in two or three deeper posts per week. I miss writing them, and I know some of you have said how much you miss reading them. I’ve toyed with the idea of cutting out the third post until May, but I just can’t bring myself to do it.
Unfortunately, this post will have to wait until I can make it good enough for public consumption this weekend. For now, I need to get at least a few hours sleep before my mammogram tomorrow (oh yes, Lumpgate continues, and at an infuriatingly glacial pace).
So look for new posts tomorrow, and please bear with me. Just 99 days until graduation. #cantwait #98daystoomany #okayimreallygoingtosleepnowpromise
