Sabbatical by J.D. Roth
Originally published on www.getrichslowly.org
My mother died Monday night. She was 74.
Earlier this week, I began writing a memorial for her. I know I haven’t talked much about Mom here at Get Rich Slowly, but she probably played the biggest role in molding me into the person I am today. After writing 2500 words, I realized I have a lot to process. And maybe Get Rich Slowly isn’t the place to publish a tribute to her. I don’t know.
In any event, I’m taking some time off.
For the next few weeks, I’ll be dealing with the logistics of Mom’s memorial service and her estate. And while I’m taking time away from Get Rich Slowly to handle these things, it feels like a good opportunity to tackle a few big projects I’ve been putting off — including the “de-design” of this blog.
My plan is to take a three-month sabbatical. I may indeed publish a bit here and there — and I’ll regularly update the “Spare Change” section on the front page and send the GRS Insider email newsletter — but my intention right now is to step away from Get Rich Slowly until the end of the year.
I’ll be back on 01 January 2023.
