where have I been?

My blog has been sorely neglected this year.

In January, I was promoted to Communications Director at Nebraska Christian College.  I never knew it, but I have been waiting for a job like this for a long time.

This job fits me in ways that I didn't even know I needed/wanted:
- It fits my faith and personal mission.
- It is thoroughly creative.
- It allows me both solitude and collaboration.
- It challenges me to achieve things I didn't know I could do.
- It involves a lot of visual art (photography and graphic design) that I can accomplish even though I am terrible at drawing.
- It has both accountability and autonomy built in.

The down side, for my blog, is that it leaves little time for personal creative pursuits.  Thankfully, I enjoy my work so much that I am okay with taking the occasional hiatus from my blog, personal photography, etc.

While I hope that this small explanation helps jumpstart my creative flow here on my own blog, I would like to leave you with some interesting things in case my absence continues.

Here is one of the things I have been working on: Lead Magazine.

If you, like me, haven't found every job opportunity completely satisfying and are looking to find out some insight about who you are and where you fit, I highly recommend:
- Strengths Finder 2.0
- Myers-Briggs Personality Test (also known as Jung typology test in some places online)

I intend to return soon, but if somewhere in the course of managing multiple Twitter accounts, facebook pages, a website, and several print pieces, I don't make it back around here for a while, I hope you will understand.
