I’m ba-ack.

April 18, 2011

If it makes you feel any better, this picture is freaking me out too.

And so are staff meetings, packed lunches, fluorescent lights , and panty hose.

So, this is what full-time work feels like.

During my past two years of being a spoiled, part-time, freelance brat, I’d forgotten. I’m wholly reminded now though—of all that and of the chronic time shortage that comes with a 40-hour work week.

I know I’ve been neglecting No Car Go.

It’s been more than a month since my last post.

But I’m back in the saddle, with renewed energy and all kinds of stories to tell from my daily commute. That said, you’re probably going to notice some changes around here.

Among them:

  • Decreased frequency—we’re probably looking at a weekly installment.
  • Shorter posts—you may like that better anyway, you gen-TV-ers.
  • More errors—I swear I’ll do my best to keep them minimal, but you’ve got to break a few eggs to make an omelet. (Error #1: That expression really doesn’t apply here at all.)

I’m pretty excited to back.

Writing about how to get more out of life with less car travel feels like the right thing for me be doing with my spare time, scarce though it may be now.

    Hope everything is going great with your new position! I quite enjoy your posts so I’m glad you’re back. 🙂 I just got a new bike, too, so barring any further crashes (…) I am eager to hear more about living with a lighter footprint.

      Yep, the job’s going well, Monica. How are things at FSW? Thanks so much for reading No Car Go and keeping in touch. Best of luck with your new bike – maybe you’ll want to do a guest post about integrating cycling into your life!

    Hey Amy, one way that bloggers get around your kind of situation is to start inviting other people to submit guest blogs. Were I car-free I would offer to write a bit, but as I am not, that seems a little silly. Anyway, if you know others who are car-free and as high quality of a writer as you (doubtful, but maybe!) then that might help alleviate your worries about the lapse in posts. Just a suggestion! Hope all is well.

      Great suggestion, Shawn! This is a community, after all. In fact, I’m reaching out to Monica (above), who I’m confident is an excellent writer. I’d also love to have you share about your car-lite life. I know you’ve made commitments to cutting back your car-use where possible, and that’s important to the movement too! Let me know when you’re ready. 🙂
