A little over a year ago my life fell apart. It was hard, it was horrible, and it was the best thing that ever happened to me.
Suddenly, I was on my own raising two kids. Suddenly, I could make my own decisions (good or bad). Suddenly, I was completely overwhelmed.
As much as I wanted to be a blogger right then, it was not going to happen. I realized that I needed to go offline for a while and focus on my family and my life. So I did. I stopped posting at all my blogs and I let them go silent while I focused on my kids and me.
I didn’t fall off the online world completely! You can find me posting bits and things at Twitter, and Facebook. I also check in a lot on Foursquare (actually I really like Foursquare…more on this soon).
Now I’m ready to come back to blogging. I’m terrified. Being out of the blogosphere for 12 months is like being asleep for 10 years. Can I be a blogger again? Will everyone hate me for disappearing? Is it even still called blogging? (heh, I do believe it is…PHEW!) I’ve been rolling blog posts around in my head for nearly 4 months, but the fears have been keeping me from sitting down to type them. I started blogging to vent about politics and have a place to post funny jokes, but after a while I started to take it too seriously and I didn’t want to post unless it was perfect. I am going to break that habit.
I will post things for the sake of posting them again. I will post things that are of interest to me because I like them and I think other people will too. I will not try to solve all the world’s problems in one blog post, because I know I really can’t. The quickie posts and the irreverence that made people find this blog in the first place will return…oh, and some posts about my cats.
I have missed you all, and I am back.
What do you want to read about from me? Do you have a question you’ve been dying to ask?
