It's been a while, hasn't it. When I decided to start a blog last summer, I knew that it would be a big commitment. I read a lot of blogs, and I know how annoying it can be to keep checking someone's blog only to find a post from two weeks ago. Of course, there are always things that will cause a blogger to have to take a little hiatus, and that's completely understandable. But, for the most part, blogging should be pretty regular.
I haven't written in almost two weeks, and I have no real reason. Maybe it's because the semester just started at the school where I work and I spent the last two weeks cramming as much summer fun into my few remaining days as I could. Maybe it's because after a FULL day or working and parenting, I just don't have it in me at 10pm to write something. Or, maybe it's because I just haven't had much to say (who am I kidding...I always have something to say). Regardless, my blogging has been pretty lackluster as of late. Luckily, I don't really have many readers at this point (hmmm...maybe there's a correlation here), so I might actually be the only person who notices. But, I made a commitment to blogging, and I have to get back on track.
So, rather than harp on what I haven't done, I'm going to ficus on what I can do. I can start blogging regularly again. I'm never going to be a once-a-day blogger. It's too much with a full-time job and a family that needs and deserves my attention. But, I am going to shoot for 3 times a week. I think that's reasonable. Sure, I could do a bunch or quick posts with three lines about what I ate or did, but that's not how I like to write. I started blogging because I love to write, so I would rather do three longer, thoughtful posts. I can also change the design and layout of my blog to make it more appealing. It's time to change the look around here. And, finally, I can actually take the leap and move this blog to the new domain and make the official name change that I have been planning for quite some time.
Let's see what happens!
