Weekly Update 7/1/2013

Well it’s been a busy time, so let’s see whats up!

First of all, I’ll be starting a new job next week.  Yes, I know, it’s been a lot of crazy ups and downs, but I don’t plan to  go looking for one again and I don’t plan to write a book on it.  I’ve probably done enough direct job-search books for awhile!

The new book project is going well.  It’s going to be up to 200 pages at this rate, but it’ll also be a bit familiar.

And no, still no ideas on the next Focused Fandom, but it keeps coming back to being either Writing or Conventions.

The Seventh Sanctum rewrite has begun, and I’m using Bootstrap.  It’s pretty easy overall, but I’m working carefully to get it right.  Fortunately the core architecture is easy to use.  I am not sure I’ll make a mobile-responsive site as my current goal is to make a more universal one interface-wise.

MuseHack is going well.  We’re up in readers, are getting new contributors, and we have a LOT of interviews coming.  I’m really working on getting people profiled there so we can build connections and show successes.  We need more so join up!

I’ve been doing more coaching lately, mostly one-offs and small sessions.  I’m always open for more – and remember the first 30 minutes is free!
