Best intentions and all. Life’s totally overtaken my blogging schedule.
I started a new job at a new institution recently, and my new commute is 3 hours a day. While I thought this would mean OMG so much writing time, it has not come to pass. On a swaying bus, the best ‘work’ I can do is checking emails + tweeting from my various accounts (AASRN and Research Whisperer, mostly).
I’m keeping this here as a placeholder until things settle down. I’ve started dozens of posts, but never saw them through. Poised over the keyboard, thinking I needed to write something insightful and worthwhile shunting out into the world, I usually balk.
So, if you’re looking at this blog because you’ve found me via one of the hats I wear, here are some shortcuts for finding the kind of stuff you might be interested in:
- Asian Australian stuff
- Reviews (screen culture, books, cafes/restaurants, events)
- Home stories
- My writing
Meanwhile, as I’ve been saying for about five years, I need to start shedding some roles…
I empathize! I need to start shedding roles too!
I’ve found the biggest gap is between realising you need to shed some roles, and the act of actually doing so! SIGH.
Here it is, 3 yrs after you posted this – have you found any tips to shedding, managing time, etc? If so, desperately would love to know. Tx for great blog!
Thanks for your comment! Guess what? I’ve added more to the list! Argh… It probably explains how regularly I post to the blog these days.
Hi again, Tseen! Would you be interested in composing a short guest post on something to do with books or libraries for my blog?
Hey there – thank you for thinking of me but I’m trying really hard not to commit to other writing at the moment. Running 2 weekly blogs and also trying to get my research writing done is proving a daunting constant in my life. All the very best wishes with your work!
Whew! You’ve taken on a lot. Thanks for considering. My best to you!
Oh, no! Oh, well – there’s something to be said for misery loving company – this way none of us feel alone for not getting more done too.
