Taking a Pause

I’m taking a pause on writing weekly content here.

It’s been nearly two years of brainstorming, writing, editing, and publishing a weekly article. For the past six months or so, I’ve been writing for this website and my new company website, Kindness Financial Planning.

While I’ve been trying to maintain the pace of two weekly blog articles (about 2,000 words for each or 4,000 words total), I’ve found myself less excited to write on weekends, which is when I write for this blog.

I’m a big believer that if something isn’t making you feel content, you should change it.

After thinking about it over the past few weeks, I’ve decided to take a pause here. I’ll continue writing weekly blog articles on my new company website. You can subscribe to my newsletter if you want to get regular updates. The content is different, but there are good lessons to be had in that writing, too.

I plan to take a sabbatical from writing here until at least October, though I may publish sporadically here as the urge to write hits me.

I feel it’s a good time to take a break. I have three weddings this summer, including my own, all of which require travel when I would normally be writing. I’m also traveling a good amount for conferences and to enjoy life over the next few months.

Instead of trying to write and not enjoy it, I’m going to take the summer and fall off and think about what I want the cadence to be moving forward.

During this time, I will be working on finishing a book that I hope to publish later this year. It’s going to be about money lessons we should have been taught in school. While it’s geared for folks in their 20s and 30s, I’m confident people of all ages could take away something from it.

The book is written. I’m currently in the process of editing it. Once I get a few people to read it and provide their thoughts, I’ll make changes, have it formatted, and hopefully get it into people’s hands by the end of the year.

Asks of you, if you are inclined:

  • If you want to read the book before it’s published and provide me with valuable feedback, please contact me.
  • If you have topics you want to be covered in future blog articles, please let me know. I want to write about things that interest you.

Thank you for reading!
