I haven’t blogged in so long. I think about blogging every day (literally), and the stakes seem to rise higher and higher with each non-writing day that passes.
I’ll be honest; I miss it.
Saying “I’m back” doesn’t help, either. It only adds to the feeling that the next post had better be… better. Greater. More.
So I’m writing tonight simply to take action. Maybe I can lower the stakes a bit. There are so many things I want to write about, and I never seem to make the time to do it. In all fairness, I’ve had some life changes lately. I started a new job, which is awesome, but stressful nonetheless. Just prior to that, my mom (55) was diagnosed with ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease). The prognosis isn’t great. And right before that, my mom’s mom passed away fairly quickly from ovarian cancer and related complications. And of course, right before that, my parents’ house burned down, and they blew a tire on their drive home to see the wreckage. Needless to say, the past few months have been stressful.
At any rate, those are the highlights. Now that I’m a judge in this year’s Blogger Idol competition, I’m getting my head around writing again. I’ve got plans for the weeks to come, and I really want to follow through with them. Speaking of which… Would you do me a huge favor? Will you join me on Facebook and remind me every now and then (like, daily) to work on new blog posts? I’d appreciate it!
Here are some of the things I’m working on for September and October:
- Book giveaways (autographed)
- Podcast interviews with authors
- St. Baldrick’s follow-up post (six months later!)
As always, thanks for reading. I really do appreciate you.
