Good morning ☀️ What do your Saturday plans include?
I had to drop my family off at the school this morning for a football game-day trip. On the way, I took the back roads and enjoyed every view of the cows I could get on that 12-mile trip. I don't know what it is about cows—it's either their relaxing vibes or the fact that their faces are one of the cutest things on earth. Watching them relaxes me. Which is exactly what I need this beautiful morning.
Life hasn't been easy, for anyone
Life hasn't been easy lately, if you're following me on Twitter you've likely seen quite a bit of it. And I have a lot of work to catch up on after being fairly depressed this summer. Getting covid recently & having plenty of time to think, I realized I wasn't finding passion in my work any longer and I needed to figure that out. I spent my time in bed reflecting and thinking about how to get myself back.
Successful community launch
Our community launch on September 23rd somehow landed at the perfect time, because it was my first week feeling "back" and I was on fire. All of the passion came flowing through me. I had a lot to catch up on but I took on hard situations, that I had created for myself, and persevered. The following week I spent the week in Cabo, Mexico with 50+ other entrepreneurs. It was an amazing time for learning and growing as a new business owner, spending time having discussions in the pool and meals with smart people.
Excited to dive into client work
So this fine Saturday morning is filled with amazing client work—drafting the first pass of a Developer Relations strategy for a great hosting company, building an Airtable to track a different client's results from our advocacy strategy for this week during KubeCon, as well as drafting a blog post about their product in our community.
Back to writing & creating Devocate content
Getting to the point, I had to pause Devocate content creation for the last week or so. However, I'm excited to dive into lots of new content & future topic weeks, great new sponsors, & other exciting offerings that I brainstormed while in Cabo. I'm back and the content is going to be better than ever. 🙌
