This blog was a wonderful pastime and creative outlet for me, and gave me membership to a wonderful community of fellow bloggers and readers.
My main theme in this blog was the combination of full-time work and motherhood.
I wrote a lot about full-time work, parenting and twins. I also wrote about books, modern life, some popular science and general thoughts and opinions. Some of my posts were cringe-worthy, some were not bad, and a few were pretty good! No doubt ALL have dated badly.
So what happened?In 2015 I switched careers to working in IT project and program management, and though I had been a project manager for some years, working for a technology start-up and later for a small-to-medium company as it matured and developed its own technology capabilities was fascinating and FULL-ON.
I have spent the last few years fully immersed in product development, "agile" development, lean technical projects and the many and various philosophies and community conversations around those. I have been LIVING on Twitter.
Combined with this, my children were growing up and my day to day challenges and interests were different. Plus, they won't let me post stuff about them anymore - a challenge that hits most blogger parents around the same time :)
So to my poor, neglected personal parenting blog: I unintentionally ghosted it, and the wonderful community who I connected with through here.
I am sorry to my fellow bloggers whom I stopped visiting, stopped reading, and for whom I left no explanation on this blog! I am sure they are used to it - bloggers come and go, and most blogs end without fanfare or a proper good bye. I hope everyone is doing well, and I will try and visit your blogs from time to time, as I loved reading them and I miss those perspectives sometimes.
Where am I now?Meanwhile, if anyone wants to check out my current, more professional blog, it lives here:
My latest post may be something relatable to some of you :) -
An Introvert's Defence of the Open Plan Office
And I make NO commitment to weekly or monthly updates!
Stay well everyone.
Thanks for visiting, and thanks for reading my stuff.
