Hi everyone! Today I am writing you a personal note. (Well… actually I am recoding this and intern Rachel is typing it out ;)). I want to discuss something that feels kind of private to me. But because you might start to notice, or will start to notice on CHAPTER FRIDAY, I feel like it’s the right thing to share.
If you’re a very long-term reader of my blog you might remember that I once wrote an article about this, but it is something I usually keep in my personal environment. For about a year and a half I have been having RSI (Repetitive Strain Injury) complaints, which basically means you have a lot of pain in your arms, your neck or your back because of computer work. With me this started out with pain in my right arm, and it progressively got worse. For about two or three weeks now it has gotten a lot worse, up to a point where I really have to take a lot of rest because I can’t even properly hold a pen at the moment.
I am someone who always wants to improve and keep going because I simply LOVE my job. Keeping up CHAPTER FRIDAY is what I love to do most in the world. There’s nothing like putting together a fantastic website with a great team, hearing your feedback and being in touch with my readers. I really enjoy this more than anything.
Basically what it boils down to, is that I’m not allowed to do any computer or iPhone work for at least two weeks. Rest is key to see how we can make things better. I hope you understand that this is really something that I have to take seriously right now. You might be seeing a few less personal articles that come from me directly, while I know those are the ones that you really love reading as well.
It’s kind of an ironic thing – because here we are, at CHAPTER FRIDAY, talking about girl power and strong girls and I am stuck at home, not being able to move my arm. So, I just wanted to let you know that it all has a reason – that I am doing my absolute best together with my fantastic team to make sure the website is up and running just the same. That there are four great articles online for you, every single day. I will still create outfit posts and will try to record articles to type out for you guys, so that you still get to see my personal input.
I have some of the best, sweetest and most amazing readers in the world and so I know you will understand. You will see more of me very soon, no worries, and take good care of yourself!
