2013: The Year I Followed My Own Advice

by Greg on December 17, 2013

247825One of the first things I tell people when I work with them is that if social media is getting in the way of you doing your job (writing, illustrating, composing, editing, whatever it might be) or your ability to live productively, then you need to dial back.

Well, yes. 2013 was that year for me, as anyone who was reading here can probably tell! It has been a long, silent Happy Accident stretch, indeed. It was not expected, but it was necessary.14fibsCover

Now, while I haven’t been blogging here, I have still been active elsewhere online, have still been speaking about social media, and still working with consulting clients. My debut novel, The 14 Fibs of Gregory K., launched into the world, too, and its positive reception has been a blast (plus, I must note, it makes a great gift!).

What does this mean moving forward? To be honest, I don’t know. I have lots of excellent plans, yet I’m aware that realizing them this coming year will require some changes, not all of which are in my control. So, we shall see.

I simply didn’t want the year to end without a re-appearance, particularly since the only big change regarding The Happy Accident has been my silence here. Otherwise, I’m still playing in the social media stream, learning, sharing, teaching, and happy as can be when I get a chance to interact with y’all wherever it might be.

Here’s to a happy, healthy 2014 for you and all yours!

Things change. Life changes. Those of us who know how to adapt are the happiest around. May 2014 treat you well.
