Busy week(s)

So I didn’t get a post up earlier in the week as I had hoped. In fact, I’ve been swarmed with a few gigs that are going to keep me working 9-5 pretty much until the end of the month.

I’m finishing up edits on one manuscript today, and have two more large editing projects due before April 1st. Additionally, I have a magazine deadline coming up on March 27th, but that’s pretty much finished, and only needs some formatting. I’m also taking an online course that I’m working furiously to keep up with, and that will end in a few weeks.

I’m pretty much booked up for the rest of the month, and a new contract editing gig with a regional construction company will begin in April.

I’m also getting ready for my mom to visit! Yay! She’ll be coming to stay with us for a week in the middle of April, and I am absolutely thrilled! I think this may be the break she needs after my father’s recent death, and, well, I just miss her.

How distracted can I be? Well, I’ve had my husband block access to Twitter from 8am-5pm, so I can work without refreshing Twitter every five minutes. (It was very tempting during SXSW, when I was reading all the b5media participants’ posts.)

So, I’ve got another post coming up to inspire some conversation this weekend/next week. I’ll be around, but the next two weeks are going to be busy!


I'm a wife and mommy first, as well as a social media consultant/manager, editor, and writer. I'm also editor of Musical Reviewer and Houston Theatre Blog.

    Hey there!
    Interesting post! Hope your mum does enjoy her stay. In fact, I know of this site that she’ll absolutely love. It’s url is http://www.womenetcetera.com. It’s managed by a group of smart, loving women who are 50+, and I’m sure you’ll both enjoy it, since it talks of all matters that women deal with, daily as well as in their lives! Do join us!

    Great stuff…

    Have you promoted this blog on Fast Pitch!(www.fastpitchnetworking.com)? It’s an online business network that has as one of it’s features a way to promote your blog to their audience of small business owners.
    FP was actually just named Website of The Week by MSNBC’s ‘Your Business’ show for small business owners.

    If you’re already on another network (LinkedIn, etc.) – no problem. Fast Pitch! takes a completely different approach. Compare Networks: http://www.fastpitchnetworking.com/comapre.cfm

    Keep up the good work!

    It has been crazy for me lately too, Julia. Tax season is over but I have some new projects coming up. We get a break but before you know it things are crazy again. I hope that you enjoyed your visit with your mother.
