When I first started this blog on December 31, I had a big vision of writing at least once a day, sometimes two or three times when the inspiration hit, but there’s one thing that has gotten in the way: TIME. No, not the magazine, I mean the lack of a few precious minutes or hours to just sit and jot down ideas and turn those ideas into full-fledged blog posts.
Oh, sure I’m off work on Fridays and the weekends, but I spend those days just lounging around the house, playing with my dog, talking to my mom, thinking about my grandfather who has Alzheimer’s and getting prepared for the next grueling week at the office.
I never knew when I started this blog the amount of time I’d need to devote to it, to answer my readers’ comments and questions, and make my blog the best it can possibly be. I’ve got about 50 ideas jotted down on about five pieces of paper, but whenever I want to sit down and blog about them, I get distracted, am working on something for work, or just don’t feel like blogging.
I know “not feeling like it” is a bad excuse, and I sincerely, truly and wholeheartedly apologize for not blogging on a more regular basis. I know my readers expect me to respond to their questions and give them fresh, inspiring messages of hope more than every three weeks, but because of my spina bifida, some days I come from home from work aching, tired and just want to eat dinner and go to bed.
Before I go, I have a question for you guys who blog or write books. How do you guys find the time and energy to blog? I’ve subscribed to several blogs and get several emails every day about new posts. Oh yeah, that reminds me… see I got side tracked…. 😦 I am so sorry I haven’t read and responded to your blog posts, if I’ve subscribed to your blog. I love reading and sharing my thoughts and promise to read your blogs and comment when I have a minute.
Thank you so much for those of you who have stuck with me through the long haul. I hope you’ll pull up a rocking chair, put on your slippers and grab a cup of coffee (or glass of sweet tea :)) and stay a while. You might find the place a little messy, I haven’t had time or felt like cleaning my desk off either. 😦
