Blogging For Work Part II

We’ve run into a bit of a backlog with consistently updating the blog at work. Thus, my main role today involved back-dating posts to reflect updates we previously sent out to our subscribers. 

The thing is, it didn’t occur to me till I was halfway through the project that I don’t follow our blog and I have no idea if everyone who does gets an e-mail when I backdate something. 

In other words, a whole bunch of people might have an inbox right now that looks something like this:

  • Foundation to file join as intervenor in case (January)
  • Foundation submits motion to join as intervenor in case (February) 
  • Foundation receives permission from Supreme Court to join as intervenor to case (March)
  • Foundation files brief as intervenor in case (April)
  • Foundation files reply brief as intervenor in case (May)
  • Update on Foundation case (June)

 

Update: Good news. We don’t actually have subscribers to our blog.
Bad news. Just found out we don’t actually have subscribers to our blog.

Blogging For Work

Boss: “You blog every day, right?”

Me: “Yup!”

Boss: “So you can whip a few posts up about our last case, right? Should be a breeze!”

Me: * thinks about the story of the runaway watermelon that took 5 minutes to write *

Me: * thinks about the complicated civil procedure litigation we just finished that took weeks of research *

Me: “…yeeeeeep.”


Homeward Bound

Homeward bound. My two favorite words right now! 

If you are reading this, I am (God willing) headed homeeeeeee!!!! (And possibly on an airplane at the moment squashed between strangers and trying to find a decent movie to watch so send a quick prayer for me.)

It is currently Thursday night for me and I plan to schedule this post for all y’all’s [heh heh I speak Southern] Saturday and write a post tomorrow about how I feel about leaving. Right now the answer is emotional but it is also past my bedtime so I would probably react emotionally to anything. Corn on pizza. Finding Nemo. The Great Gatsby. (This does not bode well for the remaining posts I need to write tonight.)

Anyway, for better or worse I plan to write a bunch of posts tonight about my trip to Korea which took place a few weeks ago. They should last a week or two. Meanwhile, I will be headed home and hopefully getting a head start recovering from jet lag. (Otherwise, expect a post or five centered around me whining about being tired.) I apologize in advance for any grammar and spelling errors. I did not plan this out particularly well (but uploading photos to Facebook took longer than expected.)

Depending how many posts I eek out of my five days in Korea and how motivated I feel tonight, I might upload a few book reviews to buy myself a few more days of recovery. We shall see! (I clearly like to live life on the wild side.) 

See you all from the glorious U.S. of A.!

300 Subscribers!

The last time I wrote a post about hitting a certain number of subscribers to my blog, three people promptly unfollowed it and I dropped below the number I was celebrating! 

But I really do want to say thank you to everyone who reads my blog. A post a day is no small thing, especially for those who get it straight to your inbox. I want you to know I appreciate you all. As much as I try and blog for myself and not pay too much attention to likes or readers, having you all around makes the process 100% more fun. 

I hope you all are having a great week! 


100 Posts and 200 Followers

Today marks 100 days of posting in a row and coincides with my blog hitting 200* followers! Thank you all for your kind support and encouragement!

*Technically 209 since I have 9 e-mail followers and the 200 number only counts WordPress followers. But 200 sounds more rounded than 209. I know you 9 are the real champs, though! You have to deal with me in your inbox! 


5 Years of Blogging (on WordPress)

According to WordPress, today marks 5 years of blogging. Whoot whoot! Never mind that for most of those 5 years I rarely posted more than half a dozen times….

I was trying to figure out what I was doing 5 years ago because I definitely didn’t start Fernweh’s Call till 2013. Turns out, this is the anniversary of when Danielle, Hope and I started Out of the Air! Remember that blog!? ….

Yeah, me neither. Good times, though! We really did have some fun ideas. I’m a little aghast at how long my posts were, but I put a lot of effort into them. They were a lot more politically oriented. It really was a blast. Yet another project I dragged my friends into, hopefully they remember it as fondly as I do! Happy Blogging Anniversary, Hope and Danni!
