I had to step away from Parrot Nation for a while due to many other obligations with my writing. I was hired by Bird Channel to write a weekly blog called, “Psittacine Cuisine” which took quite a bit of doing to get rolling and between my editor Jessica and I, we’ve managed to get it up and out at the website which was a lot of work, but it is faring well.
On the heels of that, I received an offer from IAC (Interactive Communications) to be the Bird “Expert” at About.com which is a HUGE website and has excellent Google rankings. In short, it’s a pretty popular venue. My section can be found here: birds.about.com.
So my obligations have been increasing and my time has been cut short with some changes to my schedule. Naturally, I’ve adjusted my own personal schedule to combat this which includes getting up at 4:45 every morning to avoid traffic on the days I fly. This gets me to the airport at about 6:15 a.m. which gives me an extra two and a half hours to write and upload my work before heading over to the aircraft to fly. This may not sound like a big deal and normally it wouldn’t be. But after flying to St. Lucia and back, I don’t get home from work until 8 p.m. at night. This makes for a long day and keeping up this schedule does tend to wear one down.
However, it seems to work and I keep cranking out the content. However this has given me very little time to simply blog over here. So in order to get my work out there, I am going to tie the two websites together here and post links to my work at the About website right here at Parrot Nation. This way you will have the benefit of the work I’m doing over there conveniently located here.
I’m going to try and get some more blogging done here as well if I can find the time.
I thank you for your patience and I am so very grateful for your support!
And by the way, Parker, Pepper and Nyla are well.
