It has come to my attention that my mother subscribes to this blog. (Hi Maman!) Anyway, I didn’t realize WordPress sends out an email every time a blog post goes live. For those of you currently subscribed, I appreciate your patience! I know this has been a pretty busy week on the blog, and apologize for contributing to your inbox clutter.
Of course, I had to find a solution, so we’re switching over to a new subscription service–MailChimp. The new plan is to send out a monthly newsletter with a brief summary of the blog posts from that month, along with the latest news and events. If you’re already subscribed, I recommend unsubscribing from the WordPress version and switching over to the newsletter here. You can stay subscribed with WordPress if you want, but I’m a bit shy (SHOCKER, I know), so news and events will mainly be announced through the newsletter, with any career-changing news also on my Twitter page.
On that note, now that the giveaway is officially over, I’d like to settle into a somewhat regular posting schedule. After writing the inner critic post, I realized two things: 1) Some of these posts can get fairly personal, and 2) I can only write from my own experience. If I don’t have time to work on my own writing, I’ll soon run out of material to post for you all. For now, I can commit to 1-2 posts from me each month, 2 guest posts, and 2 recommended Twitter threads. Thank you to those of you who stick with me on the bumpy road ahead.
In addition to the above mentioned content, Lissa and I have agreed to move my Indie Spotlight to this site. If you haven’t heard of my Indie Spotlight, each month I choose one indie writer to showcase in an interview.
Now for the big announcement. Drum roll, please…
