Welcome to my new blog! If you’ve found your way over here from Cloth Diaper Guru or if you’re just visiting—welcome! I’ll have to admit that I’ve been away from consistently blogging for quite some time. Cloth Diaper Guru was an amazing website that was very “how-to” and “Q&A” focused—I almost feel like it was a binder of protocols on how to be successful with starting to use cloth diapers. As a researcher, I loved writing for Cloth Diaper Guru. However, obviously I have thoughts and interests beyond just the cloth diapering and parenting space and I didn’t feel like Cloth Diaper Guru was the right venue to explore those various topics. I was also beginning to lose a bit of my enthusiasm for blogging—I had been consistently blogging for the better part of three years and I honestly needed to take a sabbatical of sorts to focus on my new interests. These interests included starting a new job at a medical device company, taking over as president of the North Central Chapter of the American Medical Writers Association, and volunteering as a guest editor with the Journal of Experimental Neuroscience. These opportunities have made an enormous impact on my life and I’ve grown immensely over the course of the past year-and-a-half! With starting this new blog, I have a few goals for myself in order to maximize the experience for me and for any wonderful readers that join me:
- Publish about two posts a month—at least one post per month (hopefully this will be increased to once a week)
- Continue to publish technical/how-to content on a variety of subject matter (from parenting to career development)
- Create a book corner of what I’m reading
- Continue fundraising for charities—possibly doing a “charity of the month club” where I’ll feature a new charity each month and donate profits from KEEP Collective.
As I get into developing this website, I’m sure there will be some bumps in the road. I do hope you’ll stick with me as this site flowers into something great—an idea takes time to fully mature! Thanks for visiting and please leave me a message with any comments or suggestions along the way.
