New Blog!!

Guys, I'm sorry for neglecting you, but I've been so busy this week ... I just haven't had the time or motivation to sit down and finish any of the posts I've had half-written for a few weeks.

So instead of looking for a new post in this space, go check out the latest postacademic blog ... Chronicles of a Recovering Academic.

Written by a social science Ph.D. candidate in the Midwest, there are only a few posts so far, but what's there is good. Zie has some interesting posts about the reactions of hir advisor and colleagues to hir decision to leave (hint: they're about what you'd expect), and an introductory post about why zie entered grad school in the first place (a post I've meant to write about myself for the last, oh, year or so...)

So until I'm back in the saddle with new content, go check out the new blog and leave a comment!

And remember - always remember - you are not alone in this. :)


  1. Have you ever noticed that most of your posts begin with an apology for not posting more regularly? You're a post-academic, remember? No more guilt about writing. Chances are, we--your faithful readers--haven't even noticed the regularity (or irregularity) of your posts. :)

    1. Ha! You know, you're right. I guess that self-deprecating, "I'm not really that good and I've been slacking" thing dies hard, huh? :)

  2. Thank you for the reference! It had been a lonely journey until I started reading the postacademic blogs!

  3. Awww, JC, you don't have to say sorry, you blog has helped me so much! I appreciate everything you do: your posts, your references, etc... Although, I'm not gonna lie sometimes I miss reading new stuff from u... Have a happy weekend and thanks for the references!
