Zen Habits Update (with a Best of April 2008)

Hi guys … as you’ve noticed, I haven’t been posting as much in the last couple weeks. I will be posting a bit more this week but thought I’d update you on what’s been going on so you know I’m still alive. :)

First, I have been working hard on finishing my book … it’s going well, although slower than I’d anticipated, and I’m finishing it up this week and next. That’s been taking up a lot of my time, obviously, but I’m excited to have a completed book!

Second, I had a bit of a family medical situation. It’s nothing serious, but it did take away from my blogging time. It’s pretty much resolved now and everything is fine, so please don’t worry. Life throws little speed bumps in your way once in awhile. :)

Third, I’ve really increased my exercise recently and am training for a triathlon. I’ll post more about my training and progress very soon. But with increased training has come decreased time for everything else.

The result of these three things has been less time and focus for my blogging, which I am beginning to miss desperately. So you’ll see me writing here more and more, especially after I finish my book. I’d like to thank you all for your patience!

New Blog Network

In other news, Zen Habits has joined the 9Rules blog network (see the logo at the bottom of my sidebar to the right). This won’t mean much for regular readers, except that you can always click on the logo and check out a bunch of other great blogs. Seriously, there are some good ones there, but be warned: it can be addicting.

For Zen Habits this just means that more people will have a chance to see my content, which is always a good thing. While I’m not focused on growing my readership in leaps and bounds at this point, I’m always happy to find new friends.

New Venture

One last thing that’s been taking up my time is a new venture I should be announcing in the next week, in partnership with a close blogging friend. I can’t give details just yet but I’m excited about it and think that it will help many people in the same way that Zen Habits has, sharing useful information that works.

Best of Zen Habits, April 2008

April was obviously a slower month than usual, but we still had some good posts you might have missed. Here are the best from April:
