Hey friends! Just wanted to do a quick update because things are changing and I look forward to sharing it all with you. I was laid off from my position as of Dec. 31. All managers at my level were also laid off, so it wasn't due to anything I did or didn't do. However, it was a shock and has prompted me to do a lot of soul searching.
Here is the thing: I don't want to do what I've always done...which is to run, run, run to the quickest, most tolerable salary. I just have this feeling that this is my time to try something else. This blog will remain a blog of personal process. How will my experiments pan out? When will I get frustrated? Where will I go to try myself anew? Why this and not that? What does it all mean?
My new blog, http://kchapmangibbons.wordpress.com/ will be pointedly focused on politics, current events and news. Sometimes, I'll be Lois Lane and just give you the facts and sometimes, I'll be more pundit-y. I'm hoping to use Big Blue Dot Y'all to get into additional media. Of course, I am very active on FB, Twitter and Linked In--but I want to be on the radio, to do podcasts, to get published. I should have gone into broadcasting/communications about 20 years ago...but, it truly is never too late.
As to the rest of my beautiful life, the kids are smart, healthy, funny and talented. The hubs and I are doing very well...learning and laughing a lot. We are staying in Nashville for the foreseeable future.
Stay tuned folks...
