This week’s post is special for a few reasons, the most important one being: there may not be another until sometime in the spring! My wife and I depart next week for a two-month trip. Originally, I had planned to write a number of posts in advance so that there could still be regular material appearing on the site during my absence. Unfortunately the preparation for this trip FAR exceeded my expectations and I simply ran out of time!
Ways To Stay Involved
However, fear not, for I shall not leave you empty-handed! Here are five different ways you can stay involved with Geometric Arts during and after this little hiatus:
- Subscribe to the post feed, either through your RSS Reader or by getting email updates. This way you will know immediately when the posts resume, and who knows, if I find the time, the means, and have something interesting to write about, I just may squeeze out a post or two during my trip!
- Subscribe to the newsletter on the newsletter page (or at the right). This bimonthly email includes extra material not found on the site, and although it, too, will be on hold while I’m away, you will get the first one upon my return – another way to know Geometric Arts is back in action.
- Read 2011 posts in more depth. In 2011 I wrote 25 posts totaling almost 19,000 words – so now would be a great time to go back and catch up on any you may have missed or not had the time to read in full. See the full list here.
- Suggest future post topics. I’m always looking for new ideas, so if there’s something you think would be cool for me to write about, use the contact form to let me know. It would be sweet to come back from my trip with a basket full of new ideas!
- Enjoy the links below. As a way to substitute for the lack of posts in coming weeks, I’m sharing below a number of links that should give you plenty of material to tickly your geometric fancy throughout the inwter months.
As always, thanks for reading, and I’ll see you in late March!
