I really don’t know how to start off this blog post. The last few weeks, hell, the last few months have been a whirlwind. If I haven’t been traveling, then I’ve been working on special projects and clients files. If I’m not doing that, then I am working on my brand and on my conference that is coming up in October. And if I am not doing that, then I am working on the redesign of my site. And if I am not doing that, then I am trying to spend time with my family, which I must admit I have been kind of neglecting as of late. There are only so many hours in a day and sometimes everything on my plate just gets too much.
Yesterday, I felt it all coming to a head as I actually zoned out and cried. I didn’t cry because I was sad or because I live a non-wonderful life. I cried because I needed to release and hadn’t done so in quite some time.
Some people think that professional bloggers live a life of zen and leisure, but let me tell you, it is pretty damn hard work. You are always working, always trying to perfect your craft, always trying to improve your site, your blog, your content. It just never stops.
Right now, I am going through growing pains. In order to spread my wings, I have to grow. And in order to grow, I have to fly—and that is downright scary. And I have been a little stressed to say the least.
So know this—I am immensely happy and in a good place right now, but I am also contemplating my future and the direction that I want to take this blog to. Major changes in terms of the look and design of the site are in the works, and you will be seeing a newly redesigned TheCubicleChick.com very soon. And while I won’t abandon the content and subjects that my readers have come to expect (and hopefully enjoy), I will be trying new things in the Cube.
My son said I’ve been acting like a Diva the last few weeks, and maybe that is true. I will be glad when this phase is over, so I can not only spread my wings, but begin to fly.
Stay tuned. And please, pardon my DIVA, I mean, dust!
