On Hiatus Until September

Greetings WWA Readers!

First of all, I want to thank all of you for reading, commenting, and generally supporting the Woman With Asperger’s blog. It’s been my attempt to explore what Asperger’s means to me, what Asperger’s means to a woman, and what Asperger’s means to a person of color living in the United States. It’s been my attempt to both document my own journey of discovery was well as identify some commonalities that I may have with other Aspies through exploring issues that affect Aspies and Auties.

No, I’m not closing down the blog. Not by any means. However, due to issues which have recently arisen in my life and also my desire to concentrate a bit more on my poetry over the summer months, I am simply putting WWA on hiatus until September. What this means is that I will be posting less often, and when I do, it will probably be shorter posts on lighter subjects (I promise you, it will not degrade to me posting about Lady GaGa’s latest look or my love for chocolate — my primary focus will still be Asperger’s/autism and my life).

Also, I’m doing this to reassess how my posting will fulfill the purpose and mission of Woman With Asperger’s. My posting style has been primarily investigative and journalistic, which has limited me on my ability to write and share more on this blog due to the amount of research this requires. While I won’t abandon this style entirely, I think I may take a more personal tone to my posts in the future. After all, if I am sharing the reality of one Aspie woman in this universe, it does perhaps require a more personal approach in my writing.

I will continue to monitor this blog throughout the summer, including comments; please accept my apologies for not answering comments over the last few months in a timely manner. Also, I’ll be monitoring the Twitter and the Facebook page regularly and may be sharing small updates throughout the summer.

Thank you all for your interactions and your support. Hope you have an awesome summer (Northern Hemisphere) or winter (for you Aussies and other folks in the Southern Hemisphere) and I will see you all again in September.
