Hello blogger friends!
Hope you’re all well, wherever you are in the world. I do miss posting on here every day, catching up with good writing, exceptional poetry and wonderful photos.
I’m coming to you today from my dining table (again, still) as Melbourne’s LD6 has been extended for another week, with hot rumours suggesting another two weeks after that. However, I’m having a reasonably quiet day with work, so I thought I’d pop on to say hello.
My new role is great and I’m loving it. On Wednesday, I had the sole responsibility of creating our fortnightly newsletter into a CMS and then forwarding it to over 2000 subscribers. It was pandemonium, but in a very positive sense, as I fumbled my way around the new (to me) CMS—fortunately I’m smart enough to cope and the system itself was reasonably user-friendly enough for me to work it out. The end result was sent to our subscribers half an hour past its usual delivery time of 4pm, but my manager assured me all was well, and it was certainly not the first time the newsletter’s been sent late.
Throughout the day, I felt engaged, and useful. It was an electrifying sensation, and I couldn’t wipe the smile from my face.
Lest you think that I’ve only had one good day this week, I’ll take this moment to assure you otherwise. Despite working from home, I see my manager each morning, and she’s available for Teams calls at any time. I’ve written articles for the website, socials and I’m presently working on early planning of our publications—to be ready by year’s end.
Couldn’t be happier with my current lot. Hope you’re all well, too.
