We're Back (And I Mean It This Time)

Remember about a month ago when I said we were back to blogging. About that...

We admit it, we're serious slackers. But to defend ourselves, it's been an insanely busy (almost) two months. To illustrate, let me catch you up on my life. Since we last posted, I got a part-time job at the Gap for the holiday season, took a trip to Kansas City, went to a Bears game with clients, participated in planning a fundraiser for my charity board, saw New Moon and decided I'm on Team Jacob, decided to start freelancing, had lots of holiday parties to plan and attend, went to an awkward grade school reunion, and you know the holidays were sloshed in there somewhere along with a death in the family. Work wise, I am going nuts with an event for 250+ people that I feel like I am planning alone and another event coming up in March.

In short, I don't sleep. Unfortunately, WG1 and I can't keep up at the pace we used to. With jobs, part-time jobs, family, and social lives, we are both super busy and blogging took the back burner. Although we like to pretend we can do it all, sometimes we have to admit that we take on too much. That being said, there are going to be some changes made around here.

Instead of seeing some sporadic posts go up every once and while by WG1 and myself, we have recruited some Working Girl Contributors who will now be posting weekly. Meeting Notes will still go up on Wednesdays. I will still be posting, and WG1 will be working more behind the scenes.

All this week we will be introducing you to our new Contributors with some introduction posts on who they are, what they do, where they live, and all that other good stuff. We hope that this will be a better way of doing things not just for us (and our sanity) but also for our readers. You'll be getting a lot more variety with the different professions of our Contributors and all sorts of Working Girl advice.

Without further ado, here is the schedule we will work with going forward:

Monday: Teaching Working Girl
Tuesday: Advertising Working Girl
Wednesday: Meeting Notes
Thursday: Healthcare Working Girl
Friday: Working Girl Two

Wow, I almost just wrote, "If you have any questions or comments, please email me". Which obviously means I'm working too much. Yikes bikes.

In other more self-promoting news, Working Girl was nominated for a 20 Something Blogger Bootleg Award for "Best Group Blog". We were very surprised since we disappeared off the face of the earth for a good two months, but thank you for all your votes! And if you feel so inclined, please vote for us again!

There was a moment I wanted to delete this bookmarked blog, but for some reason I didn't. I'm glad as I'm looking forward to the contributions of the other working girls who work in different fields. Interesting!
