Blogging with a Broken Arm

April 24, 2012

Hey y’all,

So as many of you who follow me on Twitter may already know, I was hit by a taxi while riding my bike pretty bad about three weeks ago. I ended up breaking my right arm and elbow (my dominate arm, of course,) needing 24 stitches, having 2 surgeries, getting a steel plate and 6 screws, and spending 4 days in the hospital. The recovery’s been good, though. And honestly, I feel like I got lucky… It could have been much, much worse. (And yes, for those of you that have been following me for a while, this IS the second time I’ve been hit on a bike and broken a bone.)

Anyway, that’s why I’ve been absent from the blog the past few weeks… I just needed some time to heal. But honestly, while I’m in a cast until June, I’m feeling more and more like myself everyday, and I’m getting antsy as shit to get this blog going again.

That said, I’ll start posting new content shortly — in the next few days — and be back to normal in no time… If you’ve seen new stuff around town, please feel free to email me about it. I’ll be up and about, but any help — photos especially — would be amazing.

AND, if you’re around tomorrow, come see me and other awesome Philly bloggers discuss blogging about Philadelphia’s creative spaces, from 6-8pm, at PhilaMOCA…. Learn more, and grab (free) tickets HERE!!

But mostly, thanks for your love and support… I’ve said it before, but the reception I’ve gotten from this blog, from the start, has always been so supportive. Seriously, you all have helped me make this blog what it is, and I just want to thank you… I’m ready to get back out there with my camera, and I hope y’all will hop back on for the ride.

Thank you,

Conrad

    Had a similar elbow accident with plates and screws a such a couple years ago. Jefferson hand and arm center is the tits. It get’s better from here. Stay with the physical therapy at the end that’s the most important part. The body is an amaizing machine.
