We know. That headline probably caught your attention and freaked you out. We get it. But it’s okay. We’ll get through this together. 🙂
Here’s the deal.
Jove and Andi are alerting you, dear readers, to the fact that we are putting Women and Words on hiatus beginning June 1. We have not made any decisions beyond that.
There are several reasons that we’re doing this, but the crux of the matter is, we’re exhausted, y’all.
The site is a lot of work (omg…lol), and we’ve been doing this since…um…2010, maybe? So, a while. And that long in blog years is basically 128 in tech years.
Both of us have a lot of things going on in our lives that have taken huge chunks of time that we used to have for this here bloggity blog and all the stuff we did with it, but we just don’t have those chunks of time anymore.
Life changes have created circumstances in which we both had to make some decisions and prioritize in different ways.
In other words, life happens. Y’all know how that goes. #RealityBites
But YOU. OMG, YOU, dear readers. We are so very, very grateful for the time you’ve spent with us, for all the things you’ve shared with us, and all the words you’ve spread across this site, through good times and yes, bad.
Women and Words has truly been a labor of love and community, and that’s exactly why Jove and I decided to launch it over a decade ago, when we were looking for that kind of space and looking to share it with people.
We’re honored to have shared it with you, and we’re so, so honored by the love and support that this blog has provided over the years to us and so many others.
So thank you, amazing people!
We love you, and we hope you continue to do what you do and share more love.
We’re not going anywhere. We’re just working on a lot of other things and you can always find us somewhere.
Love and light,
Andi and Jove
and all the elves and reindeer. 🙂
