Dear Gentle Readers,
I apologize. I didn’t intend to get out of the posting groove, but as you can see, it happened anyway. Rather than continuing to disappoint you every time you rush to your computer in excited anticipation of bossy color blog’s next installment (I hope the gentle sarcasm is coming through), I am going to declare, officially, that bossy color blog is on hiatus this summer.
Call it social media burnout or call it like it is: I’ve simply been swamped. I can’t seem to carve out the time these days to craft thoughtful, well-written blog posts for you and keep all the other balls in the air.
Post shorter, my friends say. I know, I know…and I’ve tried. Not tried hard enough, clearly, but it’s hard for me to break into installments a post that I’m writing right at that moment. I get too excited and have to get it out there all at once.
Just post something. ANYTHING, my friends say. But I can’t do it. Despite blogs’ transient nature, I’ve tried to write posts that might be genuinely interesting and/or helpful to you, today or in the months to come. They take time.
The reasons for blog neglect are happy ones.
First, I have a ton of work – excellent projects with wonderful clients, which is the best possible combo. And although I now have assistance in the form of not one but two fantastic design helpers, all three of us are super busy, all the time.
Second, there was a recent hours-a-day push to get the SketchUp book to the publisher’s. (I’m happy to say that it is now in their capable hands. Hooray!)
Third, I’m trying to do more photo shoots, so I can get my work onto the bossy color website and out into the world.
I desperately hope we can stay in touch. WordPress tells me I have more than 400 posts in the archives. Perhaps they can tide you over. Here are some of my favorites – think of them as summer reading:
And that oldie but goodie, Thinking about reupholstering? There’s something you should know
The minute I have something interesting to say and the time in which to say it, you will be the first to know. Have a wonderful summer.
