I've Been Keeping a Secret

I'm sure many of you think I have disappeared from the internet. Maybe even from the world in general.

And I wouldn't blame you for thinking that, because I've been pretty quiet. But like they say in spy school, you can never trust the quiet ones.*

Because, you see, I've been keeping a secret. A big ol' blogging secret, actually. And now it's time for the secret to come out:

There's a new blog in town, and it's called Audaciously So.

The idea behind the new blog is essentially the same as a series I created on this blog called the Great Unprofessional Career Fair. It's an idea I've been playing with for a while, ever since that series ended. You see, the Career Fair posts were some of my favorite; I really enjoyed connecting with other women online, and loved learning about careers I knew nothing about. Plus, all that knowledge made me feel smart and informed, you know?

Basically, this blog is that, taken to the next level. My goal is to create a whole catalog of career profiles featuring real women, a catalog people can look at when they are thinking, "What in the world am I doing with my life?" Instead of aimlessly wondering, these people can read about women who once thought similar thoughts, and now have an answer.

I'd love for you guys to head over there and check it out. What I'd love even more is if any of you have a career you'd like to share (or know someone who does), to please let me know! I don't mean to brag, but Just the Elevator Pitch readers are know around town as being the cream of the crop when it comes to internet go-ers. So I'd love to feature you!

Of course, the new blog will have my own blog posts sprinkled in. I plan on mostly writing career-related posts, but I'm also not ruling out the rogue hedgehog post. Because, well I mean c'mon:

It should also be noted that I'm not above using my hedgehog as blog bribery. Hey, I'm not entering any Mom of the Year contests.

Anyway, I hope you all are having a lovely Monday, and are at least slightly relieved that I still exist. And maybe (hopefully) I'll see a few of you over at my new joint!
