What to Do?


I'm in a bit of a quandary. I enjoy the interactions with my readers and the creative outlet of nonacademic writing, so I don't want to abandon this blog. I'm just not sure where to go from here. School and my dissertation are, for all intents and purposes, finished, so now what? Do I rename it to reflect the next phase of my life? If so, what? Postdoc Hell, Postdoc Purgatory or something entirely different? Do I re-vamp the template or leave it alone? Do I continue posting personal stuff along with tidbits about how to get through or stick to strictly items of either personal or professional interest? Should I set up another blog for professional interest articles and leave this one alone?

What do you think?

Good Wednesday Morning Dr. Shedevil,

I think you are starting an entirely new phase of your life, and it would be lovely to have your blog reflect that.

I like to read posts about the personal stuff, with a smidge about the professional occasionally, just for variety and balance.

Because your life has many aspects to it, you know ? So your blog might as well, too...

As to a new name, hmmmmm "Red Hot PostDoc' ? or 'Hellishly Smart' ?

Revamp it. Chronicle your job search for us. I enjoy reading tidbits about your personal life as well. Once you get a job, do the highs and lows from us. If you don't want to continue this one - do a closing post and direct us to your new site. I'd love to hear more about your spiritual side and your soapmaking ventures.

Well we don't want you to go, that's for sure. Revamping sounds like the plan. Think about what is the focus now that you are a free woman! :)

Yaay you and congrats again!
