In the spirit of partnership, support and solidarity, I find myself on a hectic stay-cation in NYC due to a last-minute change of plans.  During the last 48 hours and without my usual schedule to contend with, I have decided to address my absence here on the blog… So what, you may ask, creates a Circa Joy Lynn BackBlog?

1.  CONDOMIZE-ing Online

In November of last year, I began to grow the online social community for The CONDOMIZE Campaign.  I have been generating content for the CONDOMIZE Twitter (follow us here), the CONDOMIZE Facebook (Like us here) as well as posting three times a week to the CONDOMIZE blog (go to, then click “blog”).  While I have managed to keep up with the Circa Joy Lynn community on Twitter (follow me here!) and on my Facebook page (Like me here!), I know that I have fallen behind here on WordPress.  Today’s post is an attempt to create new habits and get back on the blogging horse, if you will.

2.  Animation & Video Post Production

Filming & editing my workshop on condoms & lubricants in American Sign Language

Since last fall, my team and I have been working diligently on our educational videos and 3D animations about male condoms, female condoms and lubricants in seven languages.  While I have adored this process, the post production has been… extensive, to say the least.  And until these videos and animations launch on UNFPA’s All About Condoms Website, I would rather not share them here 😉  You have already seen pictures from our animation voiceover recordings posted here, so stay tuned in the coming days for behind-the-scenes photos of our American Sign Language shoots last December.  I am so very proud to be able to offer this education to the deaf community, and I hope you enjoy the pics!

3.  Personal Stuff

A blind foster cat and multiple foster rabbits, visiting family, the abandonment of bad habits, the forging of new relationships and the solidifying of lasting friendships, a new office space, a little less pole and a lot more Bikram, thorough emotional processing, regular housekeeping… and we’re only 1/2 way through 2011.
