So thanks blogosphere, and thanks to all of us. For gathering, for talking, for sassing, for braving, for fighting, for struggling, for finding, for telling our stories.
And just so you know? That screen shot up there? That’s from the very first blog I ever read in the whole wide world. The blog that made me want to be a blogger… one day. I remember when that post went live. It was 2004ish. So thanks Andrea. Thank you.
The other day I was leafing through my diary, looking for my notes on the holidays last year, and I came across my goals for 2014. Among them was this, noted in large letters: “Make our jobs fun.”
At the end of last year, Maddie and I were paging around through job listing at various large online women’s publications, looking at the kind of jobs we’d do if not working for APW. And one or the other of us commented, “You know most of these jobs are probably really not fun, right?” We’ve both done our time working in creative jobs in New York City, and we know that there is a long tradition of bosses who are both crazy and unrealistic, who scream at you, and who send you scroller text messages (not the good kinds).…
"It's time to play the music. It's time to light the lights." Right now it's deep midwinter, and it's time to make it bright. As we near the turning of the year, it's time to rejoice, to mourn, to turn that glowing ember into a raging fire. Where did you go this year? What are you celebrating? Where are you going next?
