You’ve probably noticed the lack of posting here for the past few months. Eeks! I’m sorry for the sudden slow down but I promise it’s for a good reason.
(So I’m kinda like Beyonce now. 🤔)
With very high-risk, unexpected complications, early bedrest and a lot of stress kind of twins. It hasn’t been easy to juggle work, business, this blog, and my life lately.
So, I hope you can understand my absence!
I found out in November that I was expecting, but not until the end of December that it was twins. Because I am certifiably insane, I started another blog to document our family life and I wrote about how we found out here if you’re curious.
During this whole time, I continued to work my full-time 9-5 job, freelance write for clients about 20 hours a week (sometimes more), and work on this blog that I love so much.
I even launched Blog SEO Bootcamp on the day I found out I was pregnant (by coincidence)!
By February, I was having a hard time keeping up with just my job and freelance clients, so this blog took a backseat unfortunately.
By March, we discovered that our identical twins have TTTS (or, Twin to Twin Transfusion Syndrome) which is basically unequal blood sharing in the womb.
It is a very serious complication and I am undergoing surgery in utero in a few days to hopefully fix it. It has about a 50-60% survival rate for the twins, so I am very worried, obviously.
I wrote a post about it on my personal blog if you are curious what TTTS is, or want to learn more about the surgery I am having on Monday.
If you don’t wanna know, that’s of course cool too, but I would still appreciate any prayers and good thoughts you can send my way for my babies’ survival and health. ❤
You know what’s frickin crazy too? Now that I cannot devote time to work, I’ve received no less than 3 speaking/event requests and other partnership opportunities I would normally LOVE to be part of. And, several new clients contacting me for work.
I’ve had to turn these people down to focus on my pregnancy health, but DANG I love them opportunities!
Isn’t it funny how the universe works?
Anyway, I wanted to share with you why I’ve been silent on the blog so long and why it isn’t my main focus right now.
I am absolutely bursting with ideas to write about here, and will be back to posting about business stuff as soon as I can. But my health and babes’ health comes first. 😉

Be back soon, biz besties!
