I haven’t added to this space in far too long. Life keeps us all busy, doesn’t it? My hiatus from blogging is twofold. First and foremost, this space has always been a Mommy Blog space for me. I’ve written about my family growing up. At some point though, the decision on what to put out on the internet for all to read isn’t mine anymore. We’ve had plenty of highs and lows with both boys, but I hesitate to share them with the world, because they aren’t really my stories to share anymore. The second reason, as always, is working full time all day, and then spending time with the family at night before crashing in exhaustion.
The title of the blog though, is Being Sara. So I’ll share a story that is mostly about me. Recently I left my job at the University. I worked there for many years in a variety of roles, the most recent of which was to run the Help Desk. There were so many things I loved about my job. Most of all, I loved my students. They called me Boss Mom, and I nurtured, guided, and trained all of them. I loved it. Unfortunately, even with all of the positives, I wasn’t happy. One big negative was enough to lure me away from the University when an opportunity arose.
What opportunity you ask? 10up.com. 10up is a very cool, and very quickly growing company that provides WordPress-based solutions to a myriad of clients. They were looking for Web Producers, people to assist their Project Managers (called Senior Web Strategists) in managing their quickly growing client base.
Most interestingly, 10up is 100% distributed. Everyone works from home, from coffee shops, from co-work spaces or wherever they can find a good internet connection. There are a few clusters of employees and in those locations there is an office available to them, but for the most part, we are all over the place.
In the interest of not turning this into a novel, I’ll save my thoughts on working from home for another post. With a new schedule though, and things to write about I’m hopeful that blogging can become a regular thing again.
