Whoooo! That is all I could say after the whirlwind of a time I’ve had these past seven months. Between making a major career transition, learning the ins and outs of a new endeavor, and picking up and moving my life, it feels like this is the first chance I’ve had to sit down and take a breather.
How I’ve missed writing and sharing with you all. It truly is a pleasure that is all mine. Now I’m finally back with lots of fun etiquette stuff to talk about, starting with a lesson I have just learned. It never occurred to me how many people follow this blog for tips and info that help them through sticky or embarrassing situations. While I informed coworkers and colleagues that I was taking off, I didn’t think to say to you all that I needed to take a break and that I would return to blogging at a later date. When people started asking when I would start writing about etiquette again, I realized that I never really excused myself. My lesson learned is that when you build a vehicle to help others, they will expect you to show up; and when you cannot be available, you have the responsibility of informing your friends and followers.
Forgive my absence. Once we know better, we do better. Whether you are taking a big leap or making a small move, make the effort to inform those who support you, who are important to you and who you want to remain connected with.
Here I am, at your disposal. If you have questions related to etiquette, don’t hesitate to shoot me an email at DrJai@jcupid.me.
