Here’s something that isn’t news to regular readers: since I moved out west, changes in my professional and personal life have left me with less time and ability to maintain a blog about my natural history adventures. (For one thing, now that I have a job that keeps me in the office a lot of the time, I’m simply not having as many natural history adventures.) Posts here have slowed from being published several times a week to once or twice a month if at all, and I feel like the quality isn’t what it used to be, as I haven’t been including nearly as many of my own photos lately.
So, I think it’s time to state clearly that yes, Rebecca in the Woods is going on indefinite hiatus. If circumstances change, I might start to post here regularly again, so if you like my writing and photos it may be worth your while to keep your subscription to this blog. In the meantime, there are some other ways to follow what I’m up to:
- I’ve recently become a monthly contributor to the environmental blog The Ecotone Exchange; my first post is about culling Barred Owls in the Northwest to protect Spotted Owls. To keep up with all of my Ecotone Exchange posts, use this link.
- Find me on Twitter! I post photos, facts, links, and other snippets there regularly, especially now that I have a smart phone and can easily update it while on the go.
- While this blog is on hiatus, I’m not going to keep updating the bio and links on the About page, but I recently spent a little time updating and expanding my LinkedIn profile. So if you’re interested in what’s going on with me professionally, you can always check that.
I’ve learned so incredibly much from the process of writing this blog over the past four (!) years, and I do hope to come back to it in the future. But with where I’m at in my life right now, I can’t give it the attention it deserves, and I’m not willing to continue trying to half-ass it like I have been. Take care, lovely readers, and thank you.
