Don’t Mind the Gap

Those of you who follow my writing here at Cosmic Revolutions know I don’t take breaks very often.  Since I started my weekly Wednesday schedule for posting columns, I haven’t missed a single one (although I do occasionally go for the low hanging fruit when I’m crunched for time).  As much as I hate to break a good streak, nothing can run perpetually without maintenance, and this blog is no exception.  So Cosmic Revolutions will be taking a short hiatus while I retool and regroup.  I may still post news items over the next few weeks (the future never rests!), but the regular column will be re-runs for a little while.

So, what do you get in exchange for your patience during this gap?  All kinds of stuff!  Here’s a list of what I’ll be working on while on “break”:

  • Interviews.  I’ll be reaching out to various thinkers and futurists to capture interesting angles on the future, in their own words.
  • Guest posts.  I’d also like to bring you some original content from other writers, so I’ll be soliciting and editing guest posts during this time.
  • Organizing.  Last week, I offered a roundup of sustainability articles on the site.  I’d like to start archiving and documenting other tags, too, for one-stop shopping on a variety of topics.
  • Brand-building.  I’ve recently joined the online magazine The Urban Times as an author, and I’ll be pitching and drafting an article or two for them.  Hopefully my particular brand of forward-thinking turns out to be valuable to their readers.  I also hope I can use it as a vehicle to build awareness of my other work (ie, this here blog that you’re reading).

Thank you, dear reader, for hanging out and thinking through the future with me.  I hope you’ll keep checking in with the site, and I hope you’re looking forward to what’s coming next.  Oh yeah, and go check out the Urban Times if you haven’t already – they do good stuff.

See you in a few,

Scott
