‘Testing, scheduling, resuming’ by Anne Hodgson

Anne Hodgson’s latest blog post is titled “Testing, scheduling, resuming”.

Anne says, “Testing.

I’ve learned so much, including to love scheduling time. I think the way forward with this blog is to go back to the format I had at the beginning, which was to write once a week. That is valuable in that it allows a more essay-like approach than the notebook-approach I’ve been employing over the past year or so. ”
