Taking a little blog break

Posted By Beth Terry On September 3, 2008 @ 9:14 pm In Expired,Uncategorized | 5 Comments

Just when all kinds of exciting things are happening, I’m feeling under the weather (physically) and need to recharge and refocus. So, I’m going to take a little blog break until next week. I know, I teased you on Sunday. Don’t worry. I have a fun post up my sleeve. But it will have to wait.

Last Monday, Ideal Bite chose the Take Back The Filter [1] campaign for it’s Daily Bite and a few days later Grist published an article about us [2]. Well, we doubled our petition signatures in one week! That rocks, but the extra attention also means extra work right now.

And remember the new Carnival of Trash? It started on Almost Mrs. Average’s Rubbish Diet blog [3] in July, moved on to Mrs. Green’s My Zero Waste [4] in August, and lands here at Fake Plastic Fish on September 15th. So I need to scramble to scare up some trashy posts. Want to contribute? Write a post (or recycle one you’ve already written) on waste: reducing, reusing, recycling, refusing, rethinking, um… rotting… any other trashy R’s you can come up with… and submit using the Carnival submission form or email me [5] by September 12. And for this month’s carnival only, I’ll accept posts even if you don’t have a blog! I’ll make one for you and put it up. So email me your thoughts on waste (Don’t waste your thoughts!) in a coherent form and be a blogger for a day.

What else? Oh, exciting things happening with Green Sangha. Events and board meetings and planning, oh my. If you’re in the Bay Area and would like to find out more, let me know. We have an event coming up.

And work. I am, after all, an accountant by day, and it’nearing the end of the fiscal year of one of the companies I work for. Gotta focus. Gotta work. And gotta get through my email.

I read an inspiring quote yesterday that’s been a big help. Maybe you’ve already heard this one. Reportedly, Gandhi said, “Today is going to be a busy day. I must meditate twice as long.” Or something like that. There are various versions on the web. I plan to take the concept to heart.
