I’m still on pause so don’t get excited

Hi there.

It’s been a long time, no?

Why am I on pause? How many bags of money do I make on my books? It’s all here in this interview conversation produced by my dear friend Marisa. That dear friend part is important, because really, only she could have convinced me to do something like this.

Yes, episode 3 of the Creative Thursday interview series is…me.

You even get to see my lizard. That is not a euphemism. (Uh, thankfully.)

You can also watch it here.


This is where I’d normally put a disclaimer. But I don’t need to because there are plenty in the video. So I think we’ll be okay for now.

    I just wanted to say that I think that it’s always better to create things for yourself, that are true to how you feel in the moment, and to share if you choose to… and also to not share if that’s what feels right at the time.

    Forcing things doesn’t usually work out too well anyway.

    Be well ^^

    Thank you for sharing this! It’s taken me several sittings over several days to get through the whole video, given that I’ve been solo parenting my 4 and 2 year old boys during an epic blizzard while my husband is away. But. It’s been great to see that a) you’re still alive and well b) to learn where else I can follow you online, since I’ve only ever followed you here c) hear your perspectives on the online/fast consumerism culture. I recently read a very thought provoking book called Reclaiming Conversation: the Power of Talk in the Digital Age, and I think this interview conversation is a great antidote to the heavily edited, quick snippet blasts that we are so used to getting online. There are so many topics for which I am nodding my head in agreement and I want to hear more of what you have to say. I love that you are pausing and that you know exactly what that means for you. But I think that you have lots left to share with the world and I’ll look forward to seeing/hearing from you, whenever that may be. Even if it’s when we’re grandmas!

    P.S. I’ve never gotten into Instagram but if I have to in order to follow you, so be it. I love the homeschooling and unschooling tags!

    This video made me feel kinda sad, it doesn’t feel like a pause, it feels like a good bye, especially since this was posted up back in January at the beginning of the year and we’re already at the end of the year now. Oh and wanted to point out that I was part of that 1% that purchased books lol, love your stories! 😀

  14. This blog was… how do I say it? Relevant!! Finally I’ve found something that helped me. Kudos!

    I LOVE your perspective and your writing style. I’ve never read anything more down to earth and true! I sincerely appreciate this post and the other hundreds i’ve addictingly read since stumbling on your blog (maybe an exaggeration but I have spent a lot of time on your page!). I just starting dabbling around in the blog business – i write mostly about marriage and relationships but also the struggles of being a small business owner, etc. I would be beyond honored if you stopped by and gave my website a look over!


    I love what you’re all about and thank you for sharing your goodness!

    CALIFORNIA – RIM (Research In Motion) membuat pecinta BlackBerry harus menunggu produk terbarunya. Tersebar kasak-kusuk bahwa smartphone seri BlackBerry 10 itu harus mengalami penundaan peluncuran. Dari jadwal yang sebelumnya, yaitu akan diluncurkan pada pukul 09.00 waktu setempat, menjadi pukul 10.00 waktu setempat. Padahal BlackBerry 10 telah dinanti-nantikan kehadirannya pada tanggal 30 Januari 2013, namun ternyata harus mengalami kemunduran rilis.Reaksi awal persediaan smartphone anyar ini masih belum terdengar di pasaran. Namun beberapa kalangan memperingatkan bahwa reaksi pasar yang sesungguhnya sebagai akibat dari rumor ini masih belum terlihat. Begitulah yang dilansir Crackberry hari ini, selasa, 29 Januari 2013.Sistem operasi terbaru yang dijalankan BlackBerry 10 telah dikembangkan oleh produsennya, RIM. Bahkan, tidak mau kalah saing dengan hegemoni Apple iPhone dan Samsung Galaxy SIII, model layar sentuh juga diusung oleh smartphone BlackBerry terbaru ini. Kenapa RIM Menunda Peluncuran BlackBerry 10?
