After a busy holidays and a busy return to the working world, I am finally back to writing! The fact that I seem to have broken my space key on my laptop did not help to speed my return nor did my habit of picking up more work than I can handle. But here I am and now I have some good and bad news.
When I first started AlbinoMouse, I hoped to accomplish several things:
- Establish myself as a writer
- Re-connect with the things I love about science
I think I accomplished Point #1 . I was able to get a job with a reputable blog and well as writing gigs several other sites. For that alone I am grateful. I always wanted to be a writer, but let myself be convinced that science was a good career path.
And when we’re all finished laughing…
Point #2… ehhhhhh. For a while, I was really enjoying pushing out a few posts a week and having lots of visitors to my site. But then, like my first go-around with science, I just got bogged down with the drama, the sheer stupidity of some of the things I read, and the fact that I was again, bored.
So AlbinoMouse is going on a bit of a holiday. I may update the site and I may not – I don’t want to set anything in stone, but at the same time, I can’t promise regular content. I will still be on Twitter!
In fact, I’m starting a new blog venture! It’s going to be a multi-faceted blog and yet, in many ways it will be more focused than AlbinoMouse was. I’m going to stick with writing about the things I’m passionate about and I hope many of you will be curious enough to follow me and find out where I end up.
