Wherein I Explain My Hibernation

So, I haven't been here.

You may have noticed.

Here's the thing:  I got a job!  A for real, paying job as a writer!  I'm now the Miscarriage and Pregnancy Loss Guide for

"What?" I hear you ask.

Well, it turns out hires independent writers to be the official writer and coordinator of each of their topics.  I applied for the job on something of a whim at the end of 2010, and after many months got the opportunity to "try-out" for the job in their training boot camp.  At the end of boot camp, the job was mine!

The good news is, it's great work, it's a topic near and dear to my heart after caring for women during pregnancy loss for almost ten years as a nurse, and I am actually GETTING PAID TO WRITE!

(Here's where I take a moment to brag and tell you that is a New York Times company, so my paychecks come from the New York Times.  See?)

The bad news is, it's kind of a lot of work right now.  I'm still learning the ropes and until I find my feet, I'm afraid my blog is going to be even more neglected than usual.

I've considered closing it down altogether, actually, but I didn't want to lose touch with you lovely followers.  And--*throws salt over shoulder* *knocks on wood*--I really hope I've got some exciting news to share with you guys soon.

So, for now, consider my a hibernatin' bear.  Thanks for sticking around as much as you have.  You will still find me rambling on Twitter, and posting nonsense to my Tumblog.  Oh! And I'm on Google+ now, too, if you're so inclined to stalk me pandimensionally.

Here's hoping I've got some good news to fill this space with soon!
