As if we don’t have enough guilt in our lives, I have guilt over not posting here in so long. My friend Leslee, over at Waiting for the Click, started her blog before I started mine and has posted every.single.day since. Even though some of the posts are guest bloggers, at least her readers have something to … well … read! (And, even worse, Leslee starting her blog is what inspired me to start mine.)
Anyway, so this past week or so I’ve been slowly getting back to this. Although, I still am struggling to think of topics about which to write. I’m trying to decide if I want to get back to my original intent of this blog, or if my attention-whoring ways will return. By that, I mean being more concerned about how many people are readinfg this instead of using it to keep myself writing. I know what I want at the moment. But the attention is tough to walk away from. So, I will do my best to figure out what I’m going to do. In the meantime, I will try to remember that this is my space and it had a purpose in the beginning that I should probably continue.
So, anyway, when I took a break from the posting, I also stopped reading most of the blogs I had come to love. I still read Leslee’s for the most part, but no one else. What I’ve learned since coming back are three things:
- A few of the people I was following haven’t written in just about as long as I haven’t written. Some longer. So, I feel a little less bad about my not posting, since obviously, I am not the only person in the blogging sphere who has a mild case of ADD.
- One of my favorite bloggers disappeared entirely. Last I knew, she had gone to all the trouble of moving her blog to a new space and fancied it all up. Now, it’s gone. And I don’t mean in the “I haven’t posted in a while, but here are all my old posts” kind of way. She just picked up and moved and didn’t leave a forwarding address. Or imploded? I don’t know. Bottom line is, she’s gone and I will miss her.
- Finally, and the reason for this blog in the first place, I rediscovered some very talented and funny bloggers. One in particular I have to share with all of you. On the Verge is listed over there ~~~~~~~~~~~>, but I wanted to draw particular attention to her. Tiffany is a college student, stay-at-home mother of I believe three children and aspiring author (aren’t we all). And her blog is beyond funny. Be-yond! Read her. Please. You won’t be sorry.
