I’ve been a bad, bad girl. Or a bad, bad blogger anyway. So bad that I missed my own blogoversary in February. This blog itself is two years old. And I did nothing to mark the occasion. Sorry blog, sorry blog buddies.
Maybe it’s because there were another two years behind these past two years of blogging on the now defunct Reality Check (may ye rest in peace ol’ blog), but somehow lately I am not feeling the creative blog juices flowing. I never wanted blogging to feel like a chore, and yet lately it somehow does. It’s something that I sometimes feel like I have to do, rather than want to, at any given moment. And yet, overall I do want to blog.
Blogging brought me a lot of unexpected things, including some friends, some quite good friends actually. I never knew coming into this that it wasn’t just a one-way street o f my pumping out my insights and anecdotes. That with comments back and discovering other bloggers, I’d find a way to connect to people. People I consider friends. Who cheer me on when I need encouragement, celebrate when the good happens, and have offered sympathy and support if it’s something bad.
And so, I apologize to you. I feel somehow I’ve let you down. And you’re sometimes what keeps me coming back. Which is the best part of all. I know you’ll be here whenever I have something to say. And for that I thank you. On on this, my belated blogoversary I send the happy and good wishes your way. Thanks.
