Blogging, as Randy has told me repeatedly, is something that needs to be tended to on a daily basis.
Problem is, I don’t have something sparkling and witty or wise to say every day. I don’t even have anything vaguely interesting to say every day (witness the fact that it has been more than a month and a half since I’ve attempted to post!)
Moreover, I am, where my writing is concerned, a perfectionist. I don’t particularly care whether school papers and books stay piled on the living room floor for several days; if they don’t make noise, I don’t really notice them. But when it comes to words — I want everything “just so” and I am only far too aware of how far below my ability the blog writing I’ve done actually comes.
I beat myself up over it regularly and have mostly talked myself into abandoning the blog altogether.
However, life goes on, and maybe I needed a break from this sort of writing for a while. The last couple of days, however, I’ve been thinking about a lot of things and the accompanying idea to them all has been “hmmm, ya know, I oughta blog about that!”
So here I am.
I’m utterly astonished that anyone has actually continued to READ this thing while I’ve been M.I.A. — and thank you for that. I make no promises about trying harder or doing better… I’ll just do my best while I’m up to it, okay?
God bless you!
Well, it’s about bleedin’ time! Looking forward to checking in every day.
