Life Updates + Help me out by Guest Blogging or By Filling out a Profile

In case you missed it last week in my kind of quick update: my job recently hired me as full-time reporter which is awesome, but unfortunately it’ll mean a few cutbacks on ABP–mostly in the form of me posting less.

I’ll admit, I considered putting the project on hold for a little bit while I got everything sorted out. But I couldn’t do it. Everyone I’ve met through this project has been amazing, and that was extremely evident to me in the response to Bethany Keat’s post The Nouns and Adjectives of Ballet. If you haven’t read it yet, make sure you go do so ASAP–it’s a fantastic post. I have some other fantastic stuff in the works as well that I don’t want to give up, either.

Posting will probably go down to about 2-3 posts a week for a little while (instead of the usual 4-5). However, I’m hoping to eventually get the number back up to around 4-5 posts a week. If you’d like to help out–I’m always looking for more guest bloggers¬†and people to feature in our weekly ballerina post. You can fill out a form to participate as either here!

A Job and Lessons Learned

I’ve been away from this blog a bit for a few reasons: last week I started working 3-days a week at my job (wahoo!) and it’s a bit tough mentally to be writing about ballet when you can’t actually do ballet. I’m still going to try to stick to about 3 posts a week–although I might not reach that goal until after the New Year. Normally, I’d prepare some posts, but seeing as how I’m a writer and we’ll also be doing the same thing for our publication at work I can see it not exactly happening.

It wasn’t until last Monday that I learned (for certain) that my internship was being extended into a part-time job. I’m super excited–although it made getting blog posts up for last week tough especially since I was struggling with some annoying headaches all week long (which getting about 3 hours of sleep Monday night will do to you).

Now for a stress fracture update–the end of this past week was the first time my legs truly started to feel better–probably because I stuck to wearing sneakers from Thursday on. It’s tough to do sometimes (especially when I do occasionally need to dress nice for work), but for now my best option is to be wearing sneakers as much as possible.

This week, I’ll have the usual Friday profile as well as a guest post on Wednesday from another elf, Renee, (from #Elf4Health) on running. We’re supposed to be sharing our expertise, so I’ll be over sharing about ballet on her blog! I’m also going to try and fit in both a 2013 recap and 2014 goals in the next few weeks too.

In addition, I’ll be starting a professional writer blog/resume website too, so stay tuned for that!

What has your December been like?
