If blogs were houseplants, I would be in serious trouble! They would surely be dead by now. I have been neglecting my blogs lately. They are shriveling and drying up. They are crying out desperately for some love and attention. And I really don’t blame them…
When I started all three of my blogs I didn’t really have a plan. It was more of an impulse. I had some ideas. I live to write. I wanted some place where I could write whatever inspired me. And it wouldn’t hurt for me to have some extra writing practice either. So, I jumped in headfirst, eager to test the waters.
At first, my enthusiasm carried me along. Sometimes I would go a few days without posting, but I eagerly came running back I never run out of ideas to write about, so I was convinced that at least three posts per blog per week would be a breeze.
Boy, was I wrong! I never planned on my son having difficulties in school and needing much more of my attention for the 2012-2013 school year. I had underestimated how greatly my fibromyalgia affects my concentration and my ability to sit at a desk. I hadn’t planned on my mom getting married or the week-long vacation that followed. Oh, and I never realized how insane it can be to plan your own wedding in only three months.
I know, excuses, excuses. Blogs are a commitment and when we start them we make a promise our readers to keep them up and running. Still, knowing now where I went wrong from the beginning, I can now make a new beginning and start over fresh. From now on, I’m going to put regular posts into my schedule, and even if it is only once a week per blog until I get my true blogging legs, at least I can revel in the consistency.
Thank you for understanding and supporting my journey into blogging. I hope you continue to check back in the coming weeks to see what new posts I have in store. You never know what new treasures you might find amongst all this blogging dust!
