The past several months have been busy. Frankly, I am embarrassed that every few months I make one of these apology posts about the few months prior being busy. Tonight marks the last class of my first semester as an adjunct professor at Wilkes. I am quite proud of the students and am blogging about that experience at PR & Social Media Class Blog.This has perhaps been the best ‘part-time job’ I’ve had, and yet, with all the effort to put into designing the class and creating the initial lesson plans, assignments, etc., it felt like a second full-time job — and I loved every minute of it.
So, since January, life has been an adjustment. It seemed just a year ago, while still busy, I had the time alone to blog endlessly. Now, with the freelance writing picking up again (I took a little break during the MFA), the adjunct gig, doing speaking engagements locally, and spending time with an awesome guy – my blogging time seemed to disappear.
I am going to try to get better at this, write and pre-schedule a few posts at a time. So, in the next few weeks, you can read about the following:
-My former roommate’s wedding and trip to Lancaster
-More about my PR & Social Media class at Wilkes
-My 6th semi-annual creative writing retreat with my friends from the Wilkes Creative Writing program
-The return of my recurring feature, Talented People I Know – on my list to be featured is Jenny Hill & Dan Waber of Paper Kite Press, Kaylie Jones, Rick Fellinger and Scott Carey.
And, I am also looking to revamp by personal website, DonnaTalarico.com. I mistakenly published a new template that did not work with images I already had in posts. My website/blog over there appears broken. Ooopsie. But, when that is complete, I will have sections for Creative Writing, Freelance Writing and Social Media. This will be my more professional blog where I will share my creative writing insight and social media and eCommerce thoughts. I still want a personal blog to share silly things separate from the professional one, so I will do my best to manage Daily Dose o Donna.
So, what was the point of this post? I mean, after all, it was just a blog post of things I want to write blog posts about. Writing things down helps me commit to them. Also, it shows you, dear reader (<– that was almost a palindrome), that I am still here.
Until next time….
