A Letter to My Neglected Blog

Dear blog,
You've been neglected. Frankly, you've been starved lately. I'm sorry about that.

We need to talk.

It's like this. I've got lots of clients lately and they've asked me to blog for them. And? It brings in the bacon. So I've been blogging--just not on your pretty digital pages. I've missed you. I know, I know. Everyone says that. But I really mean it. The thing is, I'm just not that good at balance. I tend to swing from one extreme to the other. I don't say this as an excuse. This is more of a reality check. There are times when my client work is just going to have to come first. I hope you'll take solace with the fact that I have been blogging.

Here are a few of the things I've been blogging about lately.

  • Perusing Twitter helps me find unearth cool new gems like the fact that the new SimCity will be rad with alternative energy sources and other cool additions. Thanks to Miss Courtney O'Rourke for the tip.
  • Earlier this year I walked the High Line in New York City. When I heard about The LowLine a KickStarter project that aims to re-purpose an abandoned trolley station into an underground park I just had to write about it. And? They're using innovative new fiber-optic solar technology.
  • Apparently there's a World Water Day and we recently celebrated. I wrote a little piece about how to  save some water !
  • I also wrote about the cool new 918 Spyder hybrid sports car from Porsche. Um, it's a sexy car. That plugs into the wall. And it goes 0 to 60 in 3 seconds.

Let's see. I've written about saving the planet, playing fun games that help save the planet and a sexy sports car. You have to admit--it's pretty cool right? No? Does it make you feel any better that it was for a good cause?

You can take your time to make up your mind on that one. In the meanwhile I hope you'll forgive me for needing to focus on client work and be happy that at least I've been blogging. A lot actually. And? I promise to make more time for you--ok?

Now, what have you been up to?

You Don't Have To Be a Millionaire To Support Creativity

Growing up I spent most of my free time doing creative activities: writing, singing, theater and playing 5 instruments. As an adult I've always wanted to support the arts more but wasn't quite at the $100,000 donation level. That's why I love KickStarter. I can support creative endeavors at an investment level that works for me.

While I was in NYC for an extended stay, I walked the High Line along the Hudson from Mid-Town Manhattan down to the Meat Packing district. I loved how the project re-purposed old train tracks into a beautiful space. LowLine, one of the projects I funded, seeks to turn an abandoned trolley terminal into the world's first underground park.

They're 96% of the way there. Wanna help them get the last 4% so they can make their "first" a reality?
