The podcast interview is pretty much just an excruciating hour long ear assault of Sherry’s usual manic staccato nonstop blathering. They explain Sherry’s been doing copywriting work and product naming, and John’s been doing contract junk also. They also say they had to walk away basically to get their family life back in order without having to document it all the time. John added that setting blog work hours wouldn’t have worked because their “life was our work” and went on to say they have to keep that overlap to a minimum from now on.
They had to discuss whether omghaters had anything to do with them stopping blogging and from their neverending response the gist seems to be they obsessed way to much over the comments and tried to do every single thing every single person wanted.
They tell us they’ll be doing a book tour, and then they tried to give their fanpoodles some false hope.
I don’t want to make promises about what or how often we’ll post, but our home projects are still rolling along, albeit more slowly these days (there’s more on that in the podcast, btw).
Of course in the podcast they clarify that they’ll “never ever” do YHL “as a job again” but didn’t say they’d never post again. Shurry Beff says looking back she wishes she had been less defensive and not felt the need to over-explain every little thing. She then proceeded to over-explain the conditions under which they would come back to blogging. Seriously it took her 5 minutes of nonstop words to essentially say yet again that they might post if they feel like it but not as a job. (Seriously, the woman didn’t even take a breath, dawgs. Must be all those Zumba classes or something.) She repeats this about ten more times – that she might post again but not as a job. She would be cool putting up a diy post just to share but not as part of a blog job. She wouldn’t mind doing posts once in a while but not for income. She would love to post again but it would just be hey cool casual what upppp but not as a job. WE GET IT, SHURRY BEFF.
Anyway, the podcast doesn’t have any big interesting revealing info. They’ve been doing pretty much what everyone speculated they were doing – contract work and Sherry scratching her skin off wanting to post again – and now they’re back just in time to clit tickle their fanpoodles before their second book release. Which, by the way, is next week, and I’ll be doing a liveblogged review of it next Friday. So we have that to look forward to, which is nice.
