Hi everyone! So, I have an important announcement regarding my YouTube channel. I'm gonna be making a few changes over the next few weeks and just want to give you guys a heads up! (Anyone one else hear Bowie singing Changes right about now or is it just me? lol)
As most of you know, I'm currently pregnant (due in June) and am also prepping for a big cross country move right after the baby is born. On top of that, due to my recent publishing contract (EEEEKK! I still can't believe I get to say that), I'm going to be dedicating a good chunk of my free time towards edits for KEEPER. I have always considered myself a pretty good juggler when it comes to real life and writer life, but even I have my limits. As much as I'd love to sit here and say that I can totally handle everything on my plate, that's just not realistic--particularly now that I'm reaching the end of my pregnancy. Since self care is SO important, particularly when you're a writer (and growing a human!), I've decided to make some changes to my filming/video schedule.
Typically, I post one writing video a week. However, from now until the baby is born, I am going to move to a bi-weekly schedule. I REALLY hate canceling vlogs, but I honestly think this is the best move for me at this time. I don't want the quality of the content to suffer, and every other week is just a bit more manageable at this time. After the baby is born, I'll be taking a short sabbatical. I'm not sure how long it will last, but at least long enough for me to get moved and settled in our new place. Once I'm settled, I will resume my usual schedule of one video per week! And maybe more!
I want to thank you all so much for being so supportive of my channel this past year! It's grown so much! I consider all of you to be family, and I am so grateful to be part of such an incredible community of writers! I'm gonna miss our weekly chats, but it's really important to me that I put my family and my personal health first at this time. You guys have always been so supportive and understanding, so I know this time will be no different. :)
Also, a word about #Chance2Connect. As of right now, the May chat is still on, and I am also hoping to host the June chat as well (assuming the baby doesn't come before then). For July, I will likely ask someone to moderate for me, and then pick back up in August. Helping writers connect with other writers is SUPER important to me, and I don't want you guys to lose that resource. SO, #Chance2Connect will continue as usual! Please let me know if you have any questions about that!
Okie dokie, guys! I think that's it! Thank you again for being so understanding! You guys are seriously the best! Sending all of you hugs and I'll see you next week with a brand new vlog! :)
