I really cannot believe that I have not written a post in so long. There is a partial post that I have been sitting on for months, waiting for me to finish it but it has not quite happened yet. Why was I not writing? I asked myself that on a fairly regular basis and I finally came up with a few good excuses:
1. My new job: My old job was a 7 minute commute to work but my new job is 40-50 minutes one-way. That in itself makes me lose at least 80 minutes each day. And because of my longer commute and my earlier time start, I have to get up an hour earlier, therefore, having to turn in each night, an hour earlier. So my new job sucks at least an extra 2 hours from my day. Enough said.
2. Menchie’s: There is a frozen yogurt shop that opened on my block this past year. That meant that I had to start incorporating more exercise into my daily life to offset the extra calories I was intaking each month. So, there went another few hours each week.
3. My book project: I am writing a book. So when I have had the opportunity to write, I have tried to concentrate on my book. This project has been on the shelf collecting dust for a good long while so I do not know why I decided to start it up again. But I did and I’m excited and inspired to complete it.
So my blog has unfortunately suffered because of the above. When I heard from my readers that they were missing my posts I first felt like, “Wow! Someone is actually missing my posts?!” and then I thought, “Wow! Someone is actually missing my posts!” and it puts a smile on my face. So, I am going to try to post a bit more this year. And wanting something a bit more fresh and clean, I’ve changed the look of my blog. It needed a change. Or I needed a change. Either way, change is good.
Thanks for continuing to follow me and for all the wonderful comments and messages I received that encourages me to continue writing. Thank you! 🙂
