In many ways November has been a terrible month to commit to daily blogging.
My new workplace, until this month, has been remarkably kind to me as I have learned the ropes. I was given a month-long handover, a lengthy orientation in which I sat with colleagues from different departments, and a really supportive set of co-workers.
And while they continue to be supportive, they suddenly see me as somebody who has everything under control. I have become the go-to person for all sorts of issues that I hadn’t even considered a few weeks ago. Issues that are suddenly my responsibility to solve, develop or take ownership of.
I’m in a new, challenging phase of work where I really don’t know what will be waiting for me each morning when I walk through the door. So far I’m doing well to keep all the balls in the air, but it’s a hell of a way to learn to juggle!
So while I admit that my posts have been a little on the light side, content-wise, I’m pretty happy that I’ve stuck with NaBloPoMo. By the time this month ends I’ll have crossed one more item off my list (to post one photo every day), and that’s worth plenty on its own. The fact that I’ve posted a little extra each day was a bonus, and mostly good fun.
So I want to thank everybody who has been following me this month, especially if you’ve just discovered my blog. I hope you understand that the lack of inspirational posts has not been the result of a lack of interest on my part – just a lack of hours in the day! The nature of my workplace means that things will really slow down in a couple of weeks, and one of the luxuries I am looking forward to is the time to write here more regularly.
Well, in between interstate and international visitors!
