Whoa, I haven't blogged since June 15th. Almost a month. Probably my longest hiatus since in several years. Sorry I missed so much. In the blogging world, disappearing for a month is like being away for a year.
Life got in the way. I was out of town for a week for work, and some pretty heavy stuff in my personal life also came crashing down on me. Big time. I'm happy to report that I was able to come out of my turmoil a-ok.
Everything will work out.
From a blogging perspective, my unintended hiatus came at a really bad time. My ten year blogiversary is next month, and I was hoping to ride a wave of euphoria while reaching a pretty huge milestone. Instead, I'm having to struggle to get in the right mindset.
Get back in the blogging saddle.
Having done this for ten years, I have lost count of how many bloggers simply disappeared and never came back. The real world has a way of sometimes wrecking even the best laid plans, doesn't it?
So maybe it's appropriate that I had to leave the blog in order to take care of some very life-altering matters when I did. Now that all that stuff is over (hopefully), I'm right back here, typing away on the old blog. It's not easy, but after going through a rough time recently, I take comfort in knowing I can count on blogging to make me feel at home again.
Blogging is like...exercising. You take one too many days off, not working out becomes a habit. But you drag yourself to the gym and force yourself to do it, eventually, doing the right thing also becomes routine.
I hope you are all doing well, and I look forward to catching up.
Blogging since 2005.
