I return, humbled, after an extensive battle against the common cold. The cold won, but it was merciful enough to leave me alive.
Regardless, I’ve missed a blog post entirely for the first time. My sincere apologies.
This week felt, in many ways, like a punishment for the weeks that came before. As you may have noticed, I was feeling pretty pleased with wrapping up design and writing for the February mailing, as well as finally unveiling our first video project. This week, the reality hit me: there’s more involved in mass mailings than creative work. And so, aside from attending to the wars inside my bloodstream, I’ve been laboriously updating our contact information, checking postal code accuracy and street-name spellings so that our brochures don’t end up wandering lost across Ontario. And compiling and recompiling spreadsheets for labels…
Not the most glamorous work. Then again, I wasn’t feeling particularly glamorous this week, so it fits.
Nice to be back in Blogland, though. It’s a good place to end a rather harried week.
