It’s been just over a year since I pulled all these blogs together into one space to manage as I can during the course of my busy life. Time to update the main page and put some new swirl into the pattern.
I’ve been working on a few blogs lately, particularly It’s All About the Clothes. Big things happening in the clothing department of my life. It is, in truth, a fun blog and one that I enjoy updating, in as much as I do. Now that I’m taking a fashion drawing course, (yes! it’s true!) I’ll be using it to keep track of my work and to record my thoughts on my progress, as well as to post my creations and musing on fashion. I encourage you to share your sartorial creations and comments with me as I grow; the creativity of others is inspiring.
In the Sisterhood will be seeing some changes too as I gear up for work on another blog I’m putting together for my work at McMaster University, a Guide for Female Academic Physicians, which will be devoted to tips and advice for female academic physicians negotiating an academic career. That one is a work in progress and will be unveiled in the fall 2012. I’ll be sure to post a link. Even though the focus is on physician academics, there will be information and resources applicable for all women interested in furthering their careers, particularly in academia.
With springtime blowing in on the wind these past few weeks, Garden by Surprise will find some new life. The front porch received an overhaul a few weeks ago, with four, count’em four, new flower boxes. That’s a total of 7 boxes that will need flowers. The greenhouse is half-full of windows for the new addition, which has put a bit of a cramp in my enjoyment of that space. But a new shelf and four packets of seeds are awaiting my attention. I’m going in heavy with spinach and tomatoes this year. We’ll see what happens.
I Heart Hamilton has suffered somewhat from my column in The Hamilton Spectator as I tend to save my comments for that forum, so worried am I that I might not have something to say when it’s time to say it, that is, every two weeks. I’ve come to realize that this isn’t reasonable; there’s lots to say about Hamilton in pictures, not just words and I have lots of interesting pictures of Hamilton that I’d like to share, as well as more to say about everything else.
menrvaSOFIA communications is the blog I’ve created for my communications company. Over the past year I’ve worked on several projects providing training around social media tools for not-for-profit organizations. It’s been an absolute pleasure working with people, sharing information and fostering, nurturing their skill development. I love watching people find their confidence with computers, see the light go off when they recognize the applicability of computers to their lives. I look forward to building my business by helping others achieve their communications and marketing goals. And I look forward to sharing with you the creation of that resource too. It’s open, but not yet ready for prime time.
Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to read my ramblings. Feel free to poke around the site and comment as you like. I welcome your thoughts and suggestions. I’m here for the conversation, community and collegiality.
