Sometimes you need to take a break
As I sat down to think of my latest newsletter, I realized I had lots to say, but maybe it wasn’t newsletter worthy. And then it occurred to me, as I wrote in the book, you need to take of yourself before your community. Healthy & relaxed person = a better community manager. It’s good advice, so I’m going to take it. Like my dog Lulu, I will rest, enjoy the sun, and come back refreshed in the Fall.
Truthfully, I’m still hard at work building MyCLI, but for now, the newsletter will pause for the summer. Maybe I come back sooner, but I always wanted this to be a fun newsletter and not something stressful where I worried about a deadline. In some ways, I felt it proper to inform you so you weren’t wondering, “Did Adrian stop writing?” No, I’m just pausing now, but we will be back. I promise. And so my lesson for you in this issue: it’s okay to pause even things you love when they’re not fun. Come back when they are.
Until the next edition, stay well.
